Bus announcements

On the 281 bus in south-west London, they've introduced an incredibly irritating soundtrack that involves a posh lady announcing every single stop and reminding you of your ultimate destination: Hounslow Bus Station.

You can tell by the way she says the name "Hounslow Bus Station" that she's never actually been there. If I were to describe the tone, it would be warm and nostalgic. A bit like when you meet someone you haven't seen in ten years. You shake your head wistfully and say: "As I live and breathe. Hounslow Bus Station."
