Buttercups And Daisies

Why would anyone want to drive to work?

The best part about getting the bus is looking out of the window and seeing the things that most drivers would not get the opportunity to appreciate. People forget that it is spring outside.

To be fair, not many drivers could miss the dawn of spring here in Cramlington: the vast beds of daffodils that waved people off to work in the morning and cheered them back were unmissable. Unfortunately, that spectacle subsided as the next waves of nature’s plumage break through. Newcastle, particularly along the Town Moor and around the Civic Centre, is awash with bright primroses, tall opulent tulips and hyacinths and bluebells. The Four Mile Road near the A1 is lined with dandelions, making what appears to be a sea of yellow along the road. Lambs dance about and chase each other in the fields along the A19, oblivious to all those cars that tear by.

    Because I don’t want to sit with the filth of the great unwashed, stand in the pouring rain waiting for a bus or have to endure it’s longer journey time as it makes stops and goes a roundabout way to your destination.

    That’s why I would drive to work.

    Buses that don’t turn up, buses that smell, and buses that don’t run at 4 am are a few more reasons.

    Driving it far more convinent.

    I havent passed my test yet but when i do i can’t bluddy wait.

    I travel about 25 miles to work each day. Some days i have to come home by bus and train, which is a right pain in the arse. Having to wait around in all weathers. Takes me nearly 2 hours 2 get home some days.

    Whereas if i was driving to and from work, it would only take me about 30 minutes to get from work.

    Bus are shit and unreliable most of the time.
