Why am I always on a plane or a fast train?..

There's nothing quite like the terror of realising you're on the wrong train.

See, there are very good reasons that I prefer to stay indoors like a hermit crab, interacting with humanity through pixels on the screen. Let me loose and I do things like catch the wrong transport, get lost and generally just fail in every single way.

So. Over 3 hours spent on trains, today. The journey went something like this - go into the city and catch the bus near to where I live. Drop off centrelink form, catch bus to city and catch the wrong train. Discover too late that it's an express to three stations after your desired station. Get off at next station available. Discover that all trains back the other way are expresses to the city. Go back on one anyway. Catch the right train. Get off at desired station. Home.
