Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays are days from hell. Missus and I have to drop off kids and get into work in good time, and repeat the journey homewards. This requires military precision and every second counts, as missing the train by a few minutes can mean getting in half-an-hour late (and having to work late). Today I dropped off missus at the station in advance of dropping kids off and getting the train myself. The railway station is being upgraded for wheelchair access, which means the drop-off parking bays are u/s although the rarely-used disabled bays (lack of use perhaps related to the poor disabled access and the upgrade) are still there and unused. Staff car parking is similarly unaffected. I parked illegally at the station (as does everyone, taxi drivers included) and ran in to renew the season ticket, kids locked in car, after dropping off missus. I returned to the car and found some fcuker had blocked me in, a lorry delivering to the station shop. Fair enough he had limited options to unload, but he could not have missed my car. I went in and asked him to move (red mist building) but he said it would take 15 mins or so to unload. Red mist got worse, one of those "stop the planet I want to get off" moments - taxpayer with mortgage to pay, every waking moment either work or childcare, screwed around and milked for cash at every opportunity, yet another barrier in the way of the daily grind....etc. I considered enlisting the help of British Transport Police but quickly discarded this ides - more likely to get lifted myself on general jobsworth/illegal parking principles, fingerprinted, rectal probed and kids taken into care. However, there was a solution. The van was next to a barrier-seperated temporary pedestrian walkway. I humped all 10 plastic barriers (6ft long) to one side and was able to squeeze the car through - just - with hazard lights flashing to warn pedestrians to "get the fcuk out the way". I considered dumping all 10 barriers on the driver's loading ramp but decided generosity of spirit was more appropriate, and put them back. AAAARRRRGGGHHHH!!!!!!! That feels better!
