Stop the bus, I wanna get on.
What is the massive problem with the buses? I go to work. I don’t bring a car because, well, I don’t have a car! Anyway, driving is for Grown Ups. I live in Ireland – it’s cold. I wait for the bus for what seems like an eternity but the bus doesn’t arrive. To add insult to injury, the bus on the other side of the road going in the opposite direction passes by. This always happens! Did I miss some Public Transport Act 2009 which states ‘All buses must go in the opposite direction to where Bill Y wants to go'. I’m not gonna take this lying down. I have a plan. Tomorrow, I’m gonna pretend I’m waiting on the left side of the road when secretly, I’ll be waiting for the bus on the right side. I’ll wait on the left side and when the bus arrives on the other I’ll cross the road and jump on it. I know I shouldn’t have to do this but it’s the only thing that works. My only fear is that buses might read these words and find out about the plan. If that happens, I’ll have to find alternative transport or else work from home. I could say that this is ultimate proof that the world hates me but it’s just the tip of the iceberg. Bill Y
