f**king trains!

i hereby swear that i am never ever going to use a train unless i absolutely have to!

i went shopping in nottingham yesterday, and sometime between the time i arrived there and the time i wanted to leave, some gits vandalised the midland mainline at some point so emergency engineering works had to be undertaken. that meant no trains to anywhere back the way i wanted to go!

so there i was, faced with the choice to either spend extra money & go home (green, green lincolnshire), or to somehow find a very clever way of getting back here…

in the end, i had to wait for a bus to loughborough & stay with good friend dan 'the hat man'...

then today, i fully expected the trains to be running again. very very naive and stupid of me. i managed to get a train as far as leicester before i had to wait around for ages for a bus to nuneaton, then bus to coventry, then bus to campus…

and here i am. just alive enough to tell the tale..

so basically, the moral of this harrowing tale is not to use trains.

ever.

  1. Surely the moral of this tale is to never have children. All they do is create mess and stuff and so if we just stop having them everything'll be great!

  2. Yep, trains are incredibly annoying. I've worked out that in the past few years, I've travelled nearly 3000 miles on Virgin Trains alone, and every time I do it I wish I could afford a car a bit more.

  4. Bloody trains!

    I'm counting on evoluton to allow us to fly places. It better not let the human race down or our future population will have our curse of having to use trains.

  5. true, i don't intend on having children for a while.. it is of course there is every chance that it might not have been those pesky kids… unlikely tho..

    i totally wish i could drive! then i'd never have to use trains again!

    well the trains weren't vandalised– the tracks were… i'm not taking it out on the trains, the staff or anyone else.. in fact i was very polite to the people trying to arrange the coaches. doesnt make it any less convenient or annoying.

    i'm thinking giving up trains for lent.. forever really… will help speed–up evolution a bit… if people keep using trians, nature will not be forced to find some other way of enabling humans to get around!
