Many people hate using public transport for various reasons but I actually love taking the bus. Am I crazy..?
I’ve already written a couple of posts that are bus related…
Today I had to take the bus both to and from work and it’s an hour and a half journey each way. I will be sitting my driving test quite soon so hopefully, even though it’s only occasionally I that I currently take the bus, it will be a thing of the past. There are a couple of positives about taking the bus in my opinion but of course there are many things I hate about it too.
For instance, this morning it was very, very cold and the bus was even colder. By the time I was ready to get off the bus – my hands and feet felt like they weren’t actually there anymore. On top of that I stupidly disembarked two stops too early and had an even longer walk ahead of me than normal. Well, not exactly a walk as it was really frosty and my shoes have no grip whatsoever so it was more like an unplanned “prancersise” all the way to the office…
When I got there it took my almost 5 minutes to make my hands work to get the key in the lock but at least the office was nice and cosy.
What I enjoy most about the bus is the “thinking time” and tonight more so than ever. Other than when I’m in the shower, being on the bus is the place I get a lot of my ideas. I actually thought my head was going to explode on the journey home with all the things I have planned for tomorrow at work!
Being on the bus also gives me time to listen to my iPod which I don’t do as often these days so that’s an added bonus too. I’m currently reviewing all the tracks I marked as 3 stars – I have a system you might (or might not) be surprised to know!
What about you – do you use public transport? Do you love or hate it and why?
