I said more than bugger when I got an “IO” error when I tried to upload this photo.
I believe IO means input/output error.
But I have no idea what THAT means.
Anyway, I tried again and it worked.
The photo is another one from Saturday.
Just before I got us lost.
The “oh bugger” in the title is for another reason.
The whole of last week I have been starting work at seven and finishing at eleven.
I didn’t much like leaving for work while the moon was still up.
Or the hectic traffic on the highway.
But, finishing at eleven was great.
It leaves me so much time to do other things.
And read blogs.
And play scrabble.
Now,however, my mate said it does not suit her.
She wants me there the whole time she is there.
And, it isn’t that she fancies me.
She suggested I go back to starting at nine.
I have said I will try starting at eight.
Which means I am going to hit even more traffic.
Isn’t it crazy?
I used to work half an hour from work.
In a huge city like Cape Town.
Over a mountain pass.
And the traffic was great.
Then I move here.
Which is a fraction of the size.
And the traffic is horrendous.
It isn’t just the traffic.
It is the traffic lanes.
They move all over the place.
I kid you not.
They swerve to the left.
And then to the right.
This wouldn’t be TOO bad but they haven’t painted the white lines in years.
THEN just to compound the madness they have a dedicated lane for busses and taxies.
With separate traffic lights.
So, you see a green light AND a red light and you think WTF?
I am not finished.
Are you still with me here?
In the road to my work the dedicated lane is not in operation.
It has been blocked off.
BUT THE FRIGGING LIGHTS STILL WORK.
I had a bit more on this post but I lost my internet.
Let me publish before I lose it again.
