I don’t drive much to everyone elses relief if u know me well , very unstable diabetes and bad co-ordination as i said to a person assessing me for da disabled bus pass ” best for the rest of mankind if dont drive !!!
I am very lucky as a bus pass cos it makes me feel safer going around i often get stressed to various head disorders !!!! or my sugar is really low or high making it difficult to get around !!!
I ive in Merseyside were the standard joke is their is no rush hr in merseyside due to high unemployment but believe me their is the standard rush hour as well i think more people in the country and more people driving etc all hrs of the day are busy !!
REcently their has been a lot of bus cut backs leaving to some bus routes which used as small community bus no longer running leading to buses / trains being more crowded ,
It always amazes me the amount of people just staring into space for 20 mins waiting for transport i always use this time to catch up on some reading , I must admit it would be a big step to be able to travel and just relax and look out of the window which i do sometimes in liverpool especially as so much great architecture abt !! having a book in my hand i don’t curse at the traffic lights or make rude gestures with fingers as think of it as time to relax !! u cant make the bus go quicker although must admit if running late i get very hassled as dont like being late and one day being late for an appointment was practically jumping up and down on the bus ” faster faster !!!
I often try to think whilst travelling it is the time to smell the roses or remember that poem ” go placidly among the noise !!! or remember my invictus
out of the night that covers me black as pit from pole to pole ( yer will get their one day for I am the ,master of my fate I am the captain of my soul
