  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
aaarrrrgggghhhh!!!!! by Clare on 24 November 2005 9:50am
I hate my car.... I hate driving to work now too!!!! I'm sorry I need to rant for a while. My car leaks through the sun roof, it cuts out whilst I'm driving, petrol cost an absolute fortune and there are so many bad drivers on our roads that you take you life in your hands everytime you leave the house. I want to go by train to work but to do that I have to leave an hour earlier than I do already and then I get to work later than I would do if I went by car. To top it all of our train system (UK) is so bad you cant guarantee that you will get their in time!!!

Phew, now I have said all that I will go and teach!

Happy thanks givingto all the US Palinites.

I sympathise ...... I travel on the Northern line, this morning it was doing its usual stuff - signal failure, trains suspended, etc. etc. - get to work late, yet again. I take the bus sometimes but it takes forever...!

I'm sorry.

You know what they say, though...(and you're going to throw something at me when I say this)

Always look on the bright side of life...


But, seriously, I am without a car at the moment. I drive to school, but since my car's alternator belt fell off while I was driving, I have to have my parents drop me off. I kind of feel your pain in the terror caused by cars.

Wow, I missed all the traffic this morning, it makes such a difference to how I feel when I get to work!!! The car didn't cut out once which was amazing considering the temperature outside this morning. We don't have any snow but hopefully it will come over the weekend!!

Suzulu - I used to do the Great North Western line between Lancaster and Oxenholme for a while and although it should be just 15 mins it never arrived on time!!

Clare :o)

London Underground Northern line does it again! Took me nearly two hours to get home from work. We had a "do" at work which was all very pleasant. 11 pm at Camden Town, all had to get off, signal failure somewhere along the line, trains suspended, had to get a bus, well in fact it was three buses in the end. Having left work at just after 10 pm, got home at midnight. And it was soooo cold!!

I should be used to it by now!

Grrrrrr! **!!!**
