Catching the Heathrow Express to Paddington
I caught the Heathrow Express and if you haven’t ever done this it’s the new train that goes directly to Paddington Station. It gets you from Heathrow to the City in 15 minutes. All the cabbies are of course quite upset about it, but such is progress.
Last year when I was in London I actually got a stern lecture by a cabbie, because the doorman at the hotel asked where we were going and I said, “Heathrow.”
Well, when we got in the cab I said, “Paddington Station, please.” The cabbie said, “I thought you were going to Heathrow?” “Yes, we are, on the Paddington Express.”
Well, ‘ee wasn’t ‘appy.”
