Sometimes it just annoys me...


...How is it that we can get things that little bit wrong, while other people get them right? I've already gone on about roadsigns, but pause for a moment and compare and contrast a ticket for the express train from Stockholm's Arlanda airport to the city centre, with the equivalent from London Heathrow:

One has a nice body of colour, text printed in a proper typeface, and the other looks to have been run off on your dad's old dot-matrix computer from some time in the early Eighties. Well, at least we know Alan Sugar's old hardware has still got some use somewhere. It just feels a little unfair that if the Swedes can get that right, that we pay a bit more in the UK for something that's manifestly not as good.
