I Need A Car....

This morning one of the 6 buses a day I catch was late thus I arrived in the town centre in time to see bus number 2 pulling out without me. If everything goes right I normally get to work 40 minutes early but when I miss bus number 2 this means I will be 15 minutes late due to traffic.
Before anybody says "you voted against the congestion charge so it's all your own fault" can I point out this journey goes away and outside the failed planned zone.
The up side of being stuck in traffic on bus number 3 is I get the chance to read all of the Metro newspaper, the down side is I end up listening to people talking bollocks. Listening to two pimply male teenagers discussing skin care products made me want to rip my own spleen out and then one of them said he was getting grief off his tutor for being late all the time. His logic was if this bus ran on time he would not be late and getting the earlier one would just make him early and not on time.
The point were I wanted to just throw him out of the emergency exit was when he said "I am giving blood for the first time next week and they give you all these rules you have to pass first. Do you know they won't let you give blood if you have a sexually transmitted disease. I think they are making these rules up".
I kid you not.
I wonder if I can sue First Bus for forcing me to listen to this crap.
