Ellie, not Eleanor

It wasn’t the first time I was late for work, but this time I had a valid reason!  Some idiot on the underground thought it would be a good idea to jump the barriers causing absolute chaos!  Normally there would be others in the office that would also be late but I’d just missed the last train.
