19 Insanely Euphoric Moments Every Londoner Will Have Experienced

happy-london-1

Apparently, we are very, very easily pleased…who’d have thought?

 

1. Making it to pay day without going into your over-overdraft.

2. Begrudgingly accepting a free sample at the station, and it actually being something delicious or useful, instead of some gross cereal bar or food shop vouchers that you need a bank loan to use.

[Giphy]
3. Getting on exactly the right tube carriage that lines up with the exit perfectly.

[Giphy]
4. Travelling on an empty carriage because you’re an evil genius and waited two extra minutes.

[Giphy]
5. Someone else offering their seat to a pregnant/elderly lady so you don’t have to.

[Giphy]
6. Acquiring an entire table for you and your mates in a rammed beer garden. On that one hot day (hour) of the year.

[Giphy]
7. Paying less than £4 for a pint.

[Giphy]
8. When the guy in the corner shop learns your name.

[Giphy]
9. Knowing where ‘quote of the day’ is from.

10. Not being subjected to sweaty armpits/crotches, claustrophobia or Saharan temperatures on your morning commute.

[Giphy]
11. Because that is as rare as a Londoner’s smile.

[Giphy]
12. Finding somewhere reasonably priced, located and hygienic. That isn’t a windowless shoebox, dungeon or cell, or landlord-ed by someone resembling Mrs Trunchbull.

[Giphy]
13. Making it the whole way down Oxford Street without losing the will to live.

[Giphy]
14. Falling asleep on the bus and waking up just before your stop.

[Giphy]
15. Watching two kissy-faces on the tube with the satisfying knowledge that you’ll never be that abhorrent.

[Giphy]
16. Getting to ‘work from home’ during a tube strike even though you live a twenty minute walk from the office because once again, you’re an evil genius and can keep minor details such as addresses to yourself.

[Giphy]
17. Walking across the river at night.

[Giphy]
18. Remembering that you’re 1 in 8.539 million people living in London. So whatever you did last night at the pub/office party/on that date is essentially redundant.

[Giphy]
19. Remembering that you live in the best city in the world.
