What else


- Waiting end of August to be back to France and see my family...

- 'Summer' is almost over here .... ;(

- It is migraines' week.... ;(
.

My favorite public transportation goes mad .....

For those who don t know, I am currently living in Dublin, capital of Ireland sorry of the Republic of Ireland (South only). And i m sure some of u know how much I 'love' this city, where we have 4 seasons in a day well lets say 3 usually the summer is missing.


Last sunday for instance, it was snowing in the morning, rainy then more or less sunny in the afternoon! U need 3 outfits per day :P



Anyway the reason why i m talking about Dublin it s because somehow i consider myself lucky, cause last week I could have die.... It was the morning, I got a mail at work in my inbox from a friend '42A goes cabrio', i was wondering what the hell he was talking about, I was guessing by the name of the title that he was referring to a bus since bus have that type of numbers. In the mail he simply sent us this LINK from rte and I quote:

'A Dublin Bus driver and 10 passengers escaped without serious injury after a bus crashed in Dublin city centre this morning. The roof came off the bus in the incident, however all passengers were seated in the lower section. The crash happened at around 8am when the bus collided with a tree near the Five Lamps on Amiens Street.'

Here the pics:



Now why am I talking about it, it s because I always well lets say 99% of the time specially when I am alone sitting on the top floor, first row, y? because being on the bus is boring and I want to have a better overview by sitting on the front or also i m sick in public transportation if i don t see the road when bus driver is driving. Anyway, I could have been there... lucky me I was not which confort me in a way that there is a good reason to pay a higher rent and live only 3 min walking from the office to avoid this type of incidents. Now, when u look at the pictures, u re thinking, how on hearth a damn tree could have destroy then entire first floor of a bus? how fragile can it be? Did they grow this tree with guiness? And why are they making double layer bus? crazy hum!

Take care people
PS: btw the title is ironic Bus is everything except my favorite transportation:)

32 people read it till the end and comment on it ;):

Cess said...

@Multimenon

oups i forgot, for the ads, well i think i either remove them from the dashboard/layout or directly in the html code look for the anchor text and delete the code, click on preview before deleting everything or make a safe copy of the actual template in case u delete the wrong code :P
tell me if u need more help!
cheers

ceedy said...

Damn am not sure if the tree had guiness but I bet ya the driver sure did have that after being saved....

Well should I say you were lucky and unlucky...

lucky you know y
but unlucky cause if you were there - you cld have sued everyone involved and then never have to travel by bus...just wear a helmet next time and duck everytime you see a tree...but take chances will ya

oo7 said...

its good that you don't take bus to your workplace.

now u must be thinking about that front row...
i always sit on the Driver's side..in case of an mishap the driver will save himself and ultimately me too.

anyways..how's V-DAY???

take care n hugs
