I’m tired and freezing! Let me tell you why:
I left work a bit after 6:30pm (started at 9am), having had a headache for a few hours by then, and when I got to the bus stop it said 6 minutes to the next bus. Great!
6 minutes went – the bus didn’t.
Next it said 20 minutes to the next bus. All right, I’ll wait.
20 minutes went – the bus still didn’t.
Next I decided to take any bus that would take me closer to home. I only had to wait for 4 minutes more.
The next problem was figuring out what next: It was around 7:15pm at this point. I wouldn’t make the train at 7:30 and the next one went at 8 (and then I’d have to stand on it for 7 minutes and walk for 10-15). I was also thinking about going to the very last stop of the bus I was on, which would’ve taken 30-40 minutes and then I would’ve had to wait for 15 minutes at worst (if I was lucky) for the next connecting bus or just walk straight home for 20-25 minutes (but do I have to mention I was freezing at this point).
Luckily right before the train station I realised I have several possible trains to get to a station where I could take a bus that should run at 10-15 minute intervals. I quickly checked the trains on my mobile and there was one going in 3 minutes, so I jumped out and ran to the train.
During the 4 minutes on the train I checked when the bus might be going next: 2-3 minutes after the train arrived. Excellent! Again, I jumped out and ran to the stop.
The bus was late — but only for about 7 minutes, so after a while I was at home. Home!
Boy, I feel like sleeping in tomorrow… (not going to happen) Well, at least it’s Friday then.
