Public Transport fails me for the last time


Right, Saturday night I left my car at the pub and intended to get the train back to pick it up Sunday morning. I even checked the times online the night before to make sure there was a train. Sure enough, every hour and roughly 20 minutes past the hour there’s a train due from Heald Green to East Didsbury.

Sorted. I’ll do that then.

Naturally you can’t trust public transport, and my first foray into using it for some months proved my suspicions correct. The train never showed up. It wasn’t late, it just didn’t turn up.

I gave public transport one chance, one chance to prove it could work. One chance to show that I can use it as a viable alternative to my car… and it failed. It failed by not even showing up.

I’ve later learned that other people know about this. Seems the timetable at the train station, and the timetable online are both wrong. There are no trains on the Sunday, at all.

This has seriously pissed me off. What’s the point in public transport? The timetables are bollocks and public transport doesn’t work. So Mr Brown, rather than pissing on the motorist by increasing fuel tax, road tax, congestion charges and any other fucking charges you can think of to get motorists to leave their cars behind and consider using public transport, why not actually make some fucking public transport that works?

I tried your trains and they didn’t fucking show up.

Stick your fucking trains up your fat Scottish arse you twat.
