bloody bus strike
Well, you feel extra pain particularly when you don't have the car, and have a few big shoppings needed to be done.
Sydney's traffic was a chaos today. All public buses are on strike. All major roads were filled with extra cars. People who suffered the most? Those who don't have a car like us. (Well, the car is still under the assessment by insurance.)
The unfortunate part of today's story... we have to do some big shoppings for the classes. It was not usually an issue, rather sort of routine routes. However, we couldn't possibly carry all those items back home on foot in one trip. Instead of visiting the usual stores, we had to find some alternative closer ones. Still, we made three trips, and cost us quite a fair bit extra.
It would be nice if we were like rich American families with multiple cars per household, particularly with BMWs!
