The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. my car died on me yesterday and for the first time in years i had to use public transport to get to work.

    i got a rude driver who wouldnt look me in the eye and vitually threw my change back at me :x . he couldnt answer me as to the bus's route and made a grand prix start before i had taken my seat.

    the bus stank of vomit,urine and cigarette smoke. the seats were filthy and too narrow for my height forcing me to sit sideways. i had asked the driver to let me know where i had to get off to catch my second bus but he "forgot" making me have to walk the route back 3 stops. he had 4 other passengers one of whom was drunk and had wet himself.

    it took me an hour and a half for a journey that normally takes me 10 minutes to complete

    our government wants us to give up the car to use public transport? not a chance :x
  2. i bus every day into work
    not too bad, £22 a week instead of £40-50 for petrol & parking

    theres always some doris sat at the front eating porridge from a bowl though
    yesterday she was on the bus going home eating a fcuckin salad too
    does she have nowhere to sit in her house & eat?
