Dont get me started onbuses

Extracts from this document...


Don't get me started on...buses! I am lucky enough to have parents who can take me to school in the morning because if I had to take the bus more than once per day, I think I would end up killing someone...or myself. You know the saying "you wait ages for a bus then three come along at once", well where I live, "you wait ages for a bus then none ever come" seems more fitting. On several occasions I have waited and waited for a bus which never came while Doris from next door rambles on to every elderly citizen that passes by as if they were best buds.

The horrible inescapable stench that consumes the entire vehicle is disgusting; I might as well be in a sewer! ...read more.


And it gets worse at the weekend. You would think the bus companies would put more buses out at the weekend since that's when people want to go out and do things, but of course not, that would be too sensible of them. It is near impossible to arrange to meet up with friends anywhere since they all live in different areas of my city. This means that they all have to catch separate buses provided by different bus companies who have decided to supply their once-a-day buses at completely different times. I think by now you will have gathered that I'm not a big fan of buses. In an ideal world I would be driven everywhere and never have to use public transport. This is obviously never going to happen, so for now I guess I'm stuck with buses. ?? ?? ?? ?? Thomas Aird ...read more.

    However, I digress. Back to "they". First question, who are "they"? Second question, why do "they" always seem to churn out the same smiling lies every year: "It's going to be the hottest summer on record!"; "We're definitely having an Indian summer this time!"
