    Glorious First Travel

    As i have no car for the time being, getting lifts around the joint is always a must, but today i choose the glorious form of travel known to man....


    yep you guessed it a BUS!

    lol

    ano it sounds bad but i've been driving for a year or so and having to let someone else do the driving is killing me.

    But i thot to myself hey whats so bad about it.

    Ok so my journey was to falkirk from bathgate (1 hours trip)
    It started good, nice wee journey out to see some secenry and not too many people on the bus and it only cost me 3.40.... then

    I realised the driver was a 'I Don't Give A Crap' driver, and mounted ever kirb he could find and doing a quick jaunt across national roads uno the ones that you go slow in a car because its quite tight lol.

    anyways i was slightly amused and at the fact people were used to this and just sat in their seats while being flung in the air a couple of times and sit in a bus which could give you back problems for life.

    Then the best bit of the journey came up, the passenger that has the best music in the world and thinks its his/her duty to let everyone in the bus hear it! yer ok you were wearing an ear piece but it doesn't help its on full blast, also i had a couple of girls who thot 'na, my music is better' and proceeded to play music from her mobile phone (with no ear pieces).

    So i sat in the rear of a bus driven by a F1 wanna be, entertained by all R'n'B one person can crap on one's phone and wee weins messing about in the back of the bus as if it was a playground.

    Putting this to the back of my head as best as i could i then suddenly thot to myself, this bus is offy rattly as if it was flung up in 2 secs flat and the windows look like they were sealed in with very little care or attention and the seats were a little bit better than sitting on a log of 6" nails through it.

    One thing i did notice was it didn't smell! yep believe it or not but there was no odor in the shell even with all the OAP's and smelly wee kids and overly fragranced teenagers.


    So the journey comes to an end, YEY!!!! this the life bus journey over with and too my next destination.... PUB!!!!

    but there had to be something that would remind me of my trip.... oh yeah, i got a numb ass for that glorious ride [/rant]

    lol thanks for reading just had to tell peeps lol.

    Anyone else had a glorious trip with public transport?

    Come to think of it, I can't actually remember ever using a public bus in this country lol. Sure I must have at some point in my life though.

    I used lots of buses earlier this year - but that was in Malta so doesn't count
