Popular conversational topics #1: commuting to work

tags: ,

Commuting is by far the most popular local conversational topic, everyone can weave a story about the time, the traffic, the mode of transport, and details of obstacles on the route. Bus numbers, train stations, connections, services. These conversations happen over lunch, during work breaks, on blogs, at bus-stops, train stations, in pubs, cafes and homes. The conversations are littered with amusing anecdotes and demonstrations of the commuters wyle and frustrations.

I will have to work on perfecting my currently short, colourful-engaging-anecdote-free, story of a 15 minute brisk walk to a Thames-Valley Park (TVP) free bus and notable-eventless ride. Short, easy commute stories just don’t cut the conversational-biscuit here.

    When the weather gets nicer and the days longer you should start walking along the river all the way to TVP – not sure it will provide better stories but it really is lovely.

    You’ll get plenty of “Mugged by chavs as I scuttled past the gasworks” stories, I can tell you for nothing.
