...in which the hero rants about public transport
I had a journey of hell into work this morning.

I woke up late. I was awake when Misty left and managed to fall asleep again. I blame Mr "Norman Bates" Twinks - he came to say hello stopping me from getting up as soon as Misty left.

I managed to get to the station by 9 just in time to see a train pull out. The next one wasn't far behind and the carriage was almost empty.

Next stop two people get on - one sitting just 2 seat away to my left, the other sitting opposite me. The guy to my left had his personal stereo so damn loud *MY* ears were bleeding. His taste in music was total shyte - all heavy rock crap. The woman sitting opposite was also listening to a personal stereo - although I'm not sure how the hell she could hear it over Mr Metal to my left. She was waving her head about like a loony, clicking her fingers and clapping. I kid you not... and it gets better... she started singing. The other inhabitants of my carriage were about as shocked as I was. No one can sing with earphones in... she was not the exception to the rule

I'm not entirely sure what she was trying to sing but it was vaguely "diva"-ish. All I need was someone with country for a full set of music I really can't stand on the train in the morning.

I was spared a little as they got off several stops before I needed to.

I changed for the central line and managed to squeeze into a packed train. I tell myself every morning... "it's only two stops"... but it doesn't help. Next to me was a rather large lady wearing a top that didn't quite meet up with her jeans so I got a good view of her massive belly folded over her waist band.

I know inside every big girl there is a skinny one trying to get out. Inside this woman was a skinny girl, a not so skinny girl and a female rugby team. Someone should make it a law that combining "crop tops" and waists bigger than 40 inches is illegal. Veins and stretch marks before breakfast really start the day off...

Current Mood: bitchy bitchy

there's no skinny girl trying to get out of this big girl.

although, i agree that crop tops are best left to those with less tummy.

I'm in possesion of a stomach shaped by far too many pints of real ale. I would no more show my gut to the innocent public than hold up a bank. Some people should think of the children! :)

Aw - thanks dear. I am wary of posting rants all the time - I might appear to be a bitter old man... :x

There is a skinny girl inside of me trying to get out, but I just shovel her some oreos and some exlax, and she quiets right down.
