Train driver goes extra mile for his job, gets fired

Veteran train driver Thomas Percy is looking for work after 50 years of loyal service to the train industry, following an incident that saw him drive an extra mile past every stop in order to impress his bosses. When questioned as to why he thought it was a good idea to go the extra mile, Mr Percy said he simply was looking to “get ahead” in his job.

While the job market is relatively barren at the current time, Mr Percy says he is not worried about finding a new job, given he has had years of training under his belt, and that he will simply spend the downtime letting off steam and getting his life back on track.
