20 seconds ago, this sign said 9.45.  Now, it says 10.04.  Evidently it’s possible for a train to disappear off its tracks halfway to its destination.

9.55am: And now, apparently it’s coming again.  Only ten minutes late so far…

Whatever.

10.35am: I’m now waiting for a tram in the CBD because my train went directly to Flinders Street and missed its City Loop connection.

Melbourne’s public transport system makes me feel so incompetent.  I could run to work faster (if I could run non-stop for an hour at least).

10.58am: Finally at work.  The 7.3-kilometre trip took 83 minutes in total.  I could have walked it in ten minutes less time.

Metro Trains, I salute you.
