Inspiration for this story came from a joke tweet I made to @FourSquare about not being able to check in at Limbo - having been stuck on a crap train journey tonBrighton following 3 train cancellations - and then playing with Foursquare. I used this as reference material:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sisyphus
And rather fast typing, despite there being few actual words.

Hilarious! And probably the most inventive, experimental story we've had here yet.

Some change on the server meant a “” (left arrow without right arrow character) wiped out the last few lines of the story. Have edited it out now, but apologies to readers wondering at the end. It was fine when it was first written.

So, it looks like these tag starts are getting stripped from stories now, presumably for security reasons; think ^ but rotated by +/- 90 degrees.

I do all sorts of things. Mostly badly. Mostly better than others. I tell stories. Occasionally, I lie.
