Caesar sic in omnibus

July 16th, 2005 (10:16 am)

Well, I'm sick of omnibuses at the moment, anyway - and the Open. The hourly 95 has just zoomed by - twenty minutes late - without stopping because there are golf-gogglers strapped to the top deck by their loud braces. I don't grudge them their spectating, but I am a bit annoyed that there's no room on the local bus service for folk wanting to do their weekly shopping.

Update: I got in on the next bus, so mission accomplished. Now I just have to achieve boarding again later on to get into town for lunch with friends...

Similar feelings about the bus situation at Leuchars. It was a pain getting in and out. On the way in I had to lug my case up the stairs because the ramps were for those coming in to see the golf! >:-| However one of the many station attendants took my case down the other set of stairs - but only because they didn't want me using the ramp on the way down and therefore get in the way of Golf attendees.

On the way back it was also a pain because I had to cross the road which I didn't feel comfortable doing, either lugging or rolling my case, because of how fast the cars normally pass Leuchars station. There was also the annoying thing of some rather elderly local people who not only had to walk further to catch the bus into St A but also had to navigate the road with their own luggage. (Just strikes me as plain wrong.)

Sympathies... The only thing I don't miss since I left StAs is the impact of *bloody golf* on daily life, esp. when these big matches are on...

I recall pretty much diving for cover in College Street during a fly-past when the fly-boys were having their march through St As with 'freedom of the burgh' or something. Terrifying.
