Say what you will about naming a research ship Boaty McBoatface, you have to admit it makes a lot of people smile. And that’s not a bad thing when circumstances try to put you in a bad mood. London’s South West Train service was delayed Tuesday, putting hundreds of commuters behind schedule. But renaming one of the trains trying to go from from Portsmouth to Waterloo “Trainy McTrainface” lightened the mood for many of them.
A South West Trains spokeswoman confirmed the "one-off" name change was genuine.
She said: "It is a one-off by one of our creative guards who wanted to bring a smile to the face of our customers."
What really lightened the mood was knowing that someone in the organization knew it was time to spread a smile, and cared enough to do it.
