Time Warp

I’d accelerate buses.

Waiting for them, and the actual being on them – the other day, for instance, I waited half an hour for a bus. In the rain. You see, it was one of the one-every-half-hour ones, and I narrowly missed the other one.

This is all quite apt for next week: I am attending a course where they help you go about getting employment. There’s a mentor, they help you with a driver’s licence and all kinds. To get from point A (home) to point B (the place) take me approximately two hours by bus, and I’m a little unclear how much will be waiting for the buses. Also, I ought to point out that this is two hours each way, there and back. This is not to mention that there isn’t one bus that goes in a long route from A to B, and so I have to get off the bus in Depot-Area, then get a second bus from there.

Never, during university, did I get four buses in a day.

Anyway, the second part of this would be to speed up the actual journey. I’m one of the people who cannot sleep on buses, and you can only read so many books before you get sick of it… no, I’m sorry, I can’t say that with a straight face. So sped-up bus journeys would skim through the traffic, zipping through shortcuts somehow. I don’t know how it would work, but let’s leave the bus company to deal with, shall we?

(For the record, I hate buses)

  1. oh wow, I can see why you hate buses. I long for the public transportation of my home country,where a reliable bus and subway system would take us anywhere. Maybe one day, we can all dream, can’t we? Blessings!

    1. This is stacked on four years of bus commutes to uni; it was the default, as parking in the city was expensive, ferries were expensive and there wasn’t a nearby train.

      I have heard of books set in the future where the characters have cars that can hover above traffic and keep moving, so we can hope.

      Thanks for stopping by 🙂

  2. I don’t know, I’m one of those weird people who actually love buses, waiting for them and riding them. Perhaps it’s just because I enjoy the people-watching…
