What a lovely time of year

There are few things more soul-destroying in this world than waiting for a bus in wind and rain only to have it drive by full, splashing you as it goes. Not a good start to the day. I can't help feeling bus drivers take some sort of sadistic pleasure in covering you from head to toe in slushy mud. I sometimes think I can hear them cackling as the bus disappears around the corner.

I can't help feeling this wouldn't be an issue if I lived in the Caribbean.

A double decker bus! They are so neat!

Can you submit the dry cleaning bill to the bus company?

Harriet said...

No but if you lived in the Caribbean you'd get skin cancer.

Dear Sir,

Owning a car isn't much better.

They're expensive, they break down, they have to be maintained, and if the locks are broken - as they are on mine - people will steal everything inside it - as they did to me last week.

It took me an hour an a half to get to my office this morning—it is usually a 45-min commute, and a distance of aprox. 20 km.

So, don't think we are any better down here... and remember what I told you about the weather? Seems I jinxed it, it's pretty shitty and cold right now :-/

PS: I'm so sorry for what happened to you Mr. T; I have suffered several of those episodes in my lifetime; including finding once my car without the windshield (yes, the motherfuckers took my fucking windshield!)

Wow, that's sucks, Mr.T. Sorry to hear about the break-in.
