What is this business with bus stops?
When I was a kid, bus stops were about a quarter of a mile apart. If you left one, and tried to run for the next, there was an excellent chance you would miss the bus, as if you were caught between them, you were fucked.
Nowadays, the fucking things are everywhere.
I have four of the fuckers serving my house, two on each side of the road. They are only a few yards apart, yet each one has to have its little dedicated slab of pavement. How much did that cost?
There is a road near here that for some crazy reason has a bus route on it. It is very narrow, hilly and twisting. If you get stuck behind a bus on that route, you can forget about getting anywhere, and the shagging thing stops every minute as there are so many stops. One of the stops is even on a sharp bend, and they have marked the stop with a nice curved bus-bay. I have never seen a curved bus to fit it though.
The Gubmint frequently whinge about people not getting enough exercise and getting fat as a result, and then do everything to save people from walking.
Are people incapable of walking these days?
