Megan and I were headed to london bridge station...fortunately we missed being on the train by about 5 minutes. Unfortuantely, we stood in the rain trying to figure out the bus system with every other annoyed person in London for an hour.

London buses are mad. I once found myself standing at a bus stop in Hackney at midnight, trying to figure out which timetable was for night buses. Luckily I wasn't by myself or I think I'd still be there.

I have just come back from a two hour trip that normally would have taken 15 minutes. I was stuck in Oxford st for about 45 mins before we eventually 'did' get evacuated, and then I had the fortune to get caught in the bleeding rain for half an hour before a bus that wasn't packed with ppl came along, only to have the bus stop half way to my home, then I had to wait for twenty minutes so that another came, but that one I had to leg it so I could catch it in Paddington station, because two stops behind it was packed with far too many people, and I was not going to wait outside in the pouring rain for another half hour (oh, and did I mention that I had no umbrella, and was wearing shorts and no jacket because I only went into town 'quickly' to enrol at my uni?). After legging it, catching it, the wonderfully useless conductor told us that he was actually stopping at the next stop. I asked the ticket inspector if there was any bus in the God foresaken city that was actually functioning properly and doing the whole route, to which he replied that he did not know.

So, I waited for fifteen minutes until another bus came, and I eventually got home.

Not the best day I've had, by any stretch of the imagination.

I wish the London bus drivers were as compassionate as you.
