Unspoken Conversations are the topics that are often swept under the carpet, whispered amongst the closest of friends and bitched about by many. I want to create awareness about difficult things that people face in life; grief, mental health, money, illnesses, family troubles, relationship difficulties and putting yourself first. I want to tell the truth about things that really matter.

My Love/Hate Relationship.

Sometimes I think this would be a quicker option!Via

I have a love hate relationship with public transport.

I love it because:

  1. I can dream of never ending chocolate fountains while off in la la land while getting from a to b.
  2. I don't have to worry about pretending to be a hawk lurking around car parks for an easy kill.
  3. It saves me bucket loads of money on petrol and parking so that I can sip more cocktails in Fiji.
  4. It provides me with entertainment with the antics of crazy people who throw ice coffees at the bus driver, randomly bust out a guitar and start strumming or ears dropping on juicy conversations that would give 50 Shades of Grey a run for it's money.
  5. I can do my little bit to save the environment!
  6. Sometimes the ticket machine doesn't work so I score a FREE ride! A whoop!

I think the biggest thing that peeves me off about public transport is that people seem to leave their manners at the door, or in the queue that they are standing in. These things grind my gears:
  1. When able people do not give up their seat for the elderly, those pregnant and those disabled. Grrrrr. 
  2. When you are standing in a queue at 515pm desperate to get home to rip off your bras and pull on some trackies and people move out of the queue when their bus is coming, the bus ends up being full, and then they stand there queue jumping for the next bus...get to the back of the line you impatient so and sos.
  3. Bus drivers who whack up a full sign but fail to tell you which bus number it is. How are you meant to know if it was your bus and whether you should swear, curse and come up with plan b?
  4. When you are running your little heart out for a bus that's beaten you to the stop knowing full well that the bus driver can see you and they take off. You can almost picture the power tripping smirk on their faces.
  5. When there are a million buses that go to set destinations like shopping malls, and only a small number of buses that divert off to your stop but every Tom, Dick and Harry takes YOUR bus, leaving no space for you. GRRRR!
  6. When the bus fails to rock up altogether and you've turned blue out in the cold.

What funny horror stories do have to tell from riding public transport? What peeves you off? Why don't you take public transport?

Look after yourself and those around you,

Wow public transportation is rough all over the world I see. I've seen a drunk guy pee on the train before. Smelly people with too much perfume or too much body odor always end up sitting near me when I have a massive headache. I hate when people don't give their seat to an elderly person, disabled or a pregnant woman. No manners I tell ya! Random conversations people have always entertaining.
