    Public transport sucks!!

    My cars in the garage atm so i thought instead of blasting money on a taxi ill try the bus.

    Got to the bus stop 45 mins before my appointment at physio which should have been more than enough time to get there. The timetable said there was a bus every 10 minutes.

    45 mins later and still no bus so i just got up and thought ***** it theyr not gettin a penny off me cos they made me miss my appointment.

    I will never attempt to take the bus again.

    Buses down here aren't too bad.

    My major peeve is how FlyBe can delay a flight by half an hour due to a late inbound aircraft. If they stick to the timetable they're given then there shouldn't be as many delays. Obviously if the plane is broken then that's a different matter. I fly regularly with FlyBe and in the past 2 year flying on average twice a month, I'd be suprised if I've been on 5 flights that were on time.

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    I got rid of the Astra april gone, and had to leave at 7am to get to work for 9am. I don't fully agree with you Munkie, being on a bus has its perks. Plenty of lovely ladies.. Now I have my Vectra, and all I see is dogs.

    public transport sucks....and not in a good way.

    In manchester they want a toll tax to pay for the decades of under investment in public transport. Making Stagecoach and other public carriers richer in the progress. This country can really suck at times, but i suppose it better than clinging to a train in the sub-asian continent lol.
    People have become afraid to speak their mind.
