My First Post, start off with a bang

by Time out with Tony, by Tony Scott Thursday, June 13 2013

Hello blog viewers, this is my first blog. For that reason I have decided to release what I hate most before I start in the blogosphere. I live in a Kentish Town and the one thing that buggers me the most about living there is the transport system. 

Now Don't get me wrong it's all fine and dandy at all times of the day running clear services, apart from at school times. I dread having to stand in the freezing cold of a bus stop while young girls standing around me light up cigarettes as and when they please, coughing out black smoke. The depressing atmosphere of this place is also stereotyped by a billboard that has gone beyond its call of duty and is in disrepair.

And then getting the bus itself is a struggle. The masses of people my age that have to get to school along this route is immense, this leads to overcrowding. The council of course only have the bare minimum of buses needed,  which means that I get to enjoy the sheer pleasure of being crowded in with, well how to put it, people beyond my liking.

The hilarity of it is that many smaller bus companies (not arriva) put on one-day services to please the inspector of the bus companies anually that means that they can pass of as being a good company, when really they have to battle with overcrowding every day. It's madness.

Of course it's classic that on a busy school time service, Mrs Young Mum has to make an appearance and shout at other people on board as if we are animals, as she barges her way through the crowd with no respect for anyone. Goddamit why can't they understand that they can take transport at different times?

The bus drivers are characters. You start to get a know of the nice, friendly drivers; and the resentful, child hating ones. Of course because they have protection they think they can dish hate to people and be outright rude. It is iust unbearable

In short, you can see my resent for transport, which I believe is a common thing. I hope you enjoy more of what I have to offer. Goodbye.
