Late

The train was 12 minutes late. 12 measly minutes! Did they get out down the line and decide to push the fucking thing! Honestly! It makes me mad! I’m sure to some it’s only a small delay to others such as myself it’s a missed train connection and a missed bus and later into work. Karma will get you train company. It will get you. (Said in my best Taken movie voice!) 😡
Note: I have no affiliation with the Taken movies, they are a brilliant watch and very apt for my current mood!

I’m not surprised 

I must first apologise for lack of posts. I lost my shit yesterday after yet another train was cancelled after they have supposedly stopped striking. I was not a happy bunny. 

So today I see this…..


Why the fuck does she think this is ok? Don’t mind anyone who might like to walk down the aisle, it would appear you bag needs space so sod it, let said bag have a lie down. 

Judging by my most current mood in relation to this service I am not remotely surprised that the conductor just walked around it! 

It’s gonna be one of those days……

This morning 

Two things I noticed whist observing the disgruntled commuter.

Firstly, I chose to attempt to get to work using the train on a day where strikes are looming. 

My husband was able to drop me to a bigger station so I could make a connection. Note even those connections were delayed. Anyhow true to form the train was super packed, standing room only. This young girl had decided to position herself by the door and sit on the floor, I kid you not she had no intention of standing up when we reached a station. I just watched as a fellow passenger with his giant suitcase on wheels just rolled it into her, and then back and rolled it back and then again and back hitting her harder each time until she was forced to stand. Note there was plenty of room to get out, it just seemed that was the only way he wanted to go. Good job it wasn’t me sitting there!!!

I then make my way to the bus at double pace only to be greeted with some twat who wanted to take up the whole pathway, yep, every time I tried to overtake he would walk in my way. Eventually forcing me to go past him via the grass. Due to that I pushed to the front of the queue and made him wait in the cold.

Let’s hope I can get home with little trouble! 

As it happens I appear to have made it to work on time! Miracles!

Seat

Rather than sharing my seat with the guy next to me I have opted to share my seat with one bum cheek. I do not feel i want to get that close to a random person today.

If you are of a said proportion my advise to you is as follows:

1. Stand

2. Sit on the floor

3. Find a row of three seats, the middle works well  

4. At least introduce yourself to the person who’s seat you are sharing

5. If all else fails and I mean this genuinely, you may come to weight watchers with me on Wednesday night.

This is for th good of your health. Nothing more. 

The end

I’ve done it

Just had to endure several lung fulls of second hand fag smoke walking up the path to the station and I finally snapped. Told the man “you know it’s really unpleasant smoking in the only entrance to the station” he’s still there of course. I might make this my new crusade and start emailing the station to get the smoking area moved. It’s just so nasty especially at 05:30 in the morning! 

Feel like I could have been more rude but in all fairness on a Monday morning I’m not in the mood for a full on fight! 

The crusade continues….. 😷🚬🚬🚬

It’s dark

Yes I’m stating the obvious here, but for the last few mornings dark has meant keeping my eyes peeled in the hope I don’t get ploughed down by some old dude on an old bike with no lights. Thankfully it’s pretty quitet in my area so I can hear him creaking along but should that not be the case I would have a claim to fame of being run over by a push bike!!!🚲 

Goodness me, I thought the train was bad, now I’m risking my life walking to the station 😆😆

Watch out people! Danger at every turn! ❤️
