I’m an idiot.
I walked down to Oxford Circus tube last night at around 6pm, it was packed with the queues to get through the ticket beep gates. I finally got to the gates, did the whole walk and beep oyster card at the same time thing, only to drop my oyster card.
I’d made it through the gates at this point, my card had dropped behind me. So I turned around, bent down to pick it up, only for the ticket gates to close (really quickly and hard) on my head. Aaarrgghhh! My head was stuck for about half a second, all the hundreds of people around me gasped as I pulled the doors back again and freed my head.
So very very embarrassing.
