Driving Impaired
Okay... I will never complain about Toronto drivers ever again. London drivers are much worse (and I don't think it helps, with how narrow the roads are here, either).

Last week, while we were taking the bus to work, our bus driver hit a car in front of him... and promptly drove off.

Today while on the bus to work, the driver hit a tree. All we heard was this huge BANG that shook the bus, and we looked up to see a large tree branch shatter into pieces, cracking the windshield. So... we decided to get off of the bus, and walk the rest of the way to work, this morning. Once off of the bus, we saw the damage that had been done - the hit took a huge chunk of metal right out of the top corner (this is a double-decker bus), and dented up the front pretty good.

...

So, I will be learning how to drive, once we're back in Canada. Yay! :)

Current Mood: contemplative

Well the roads haven't changed in size much since the great fire of London. Everyone started rebuilding before the king could pull his finger out and get them to put down a layout that was more organised. So, they're all horse+buggy sized.

It does however show evolution in action, the survival of the fittest. Only the biggest SUVs survive, or those lucky cars that can get away with being cute enough to arouse sympathy compassion.

But hey, least you survived your first car accidient fine. :)

Bad drivers do make it challenging. They are in every city, tho it does seem like some areas are worse then others. Oddly Vancouver itself seems to be the most comfortable for me. Even more then the suburbs here. I think a lot has to do with just understanding the unspoken rules of an area. Depending on where you guys end up I might be able to help you.

Say Hi to Tim for me! Take care! *hugs*

When did a TTC bus catch on fire??

Sure, hon! I'd love to catch up! You know I love taking with you. In fact, if you wanted, you could get a calling card, and give me a call sometime, when you're off work (seeing as I don't know your weekly schedule).

+44 2088 108 462

We're only 4 hours ahead of you right now (we haven't had daylight savings time yet). We're also off for Easter break, until next Sunday, so we will pretty much be home all day, so this week is probably the best week to call us. I can try calling you if you'd like, but sometimes these lines don't allow me to get through to certain numbers, overseas. :/

That's if you would like to talk, earlier. We won't be settled in Canada until sometime in mid June (we'll be back in the Toronto area at the end of May, but then we still have to go to Michigan for a couple of weeks, to visit Tim's parents, and pick up the dogs and truck).

Let me know what you'd like to do. :)
