Didn’t have the car at the weekend so had to use public transport to get to work. My god what a nightmare! saturday went as well as could be expected until I was waiting for the train home. Train starts to pull into the platform stops halfway the driver gets out and runs off and forgets to open the doors meaning the passengers can’t get out. Don’t really know why he did this maybe he just needed the toilet? still, had to wait fo LUL staff to come and let the passengers off. Can you imagine if there was a fire? wouldn’t want him as my driver I can tell you with his ‘sod everyone else i’m off’ attitude.
Sundays journey was horrible. Do a journey planner jobie so I got up/left in time. Walking down the road and the bloody bus went pass cause it was early. Brought a paper and stood in the freezing raining weather for 20 minutes for the next one. Got on sat down and the driver says “Is the shop open?” “Yes” I replied. He left the bus closing his cab door behind him and went to the shop. On his return found found that in his haste he’d locked the keys for the cab inside the bloody thing!!!! Lots if umming and arring and trying to pick the lock with his front door key. Then he looks at me and says “I’m locked out”, now by this time I was beginning to lose it so went to see if I could do anything, well to cut a long story short I managed to reach the latch on the other side of the door and let guy back in.
I rarely use public transport and when I do it turns into a massive mission, people can bleet on all they like saying we should use it more but I say SOD EM i’ll take the car any day.
