So this morning was an eventful trip to work. We had a super long train, at least one more train set than usual and the train was going very, very fast. I was sitting in my seat enjoying my book and my coffee, and had just put down my coffee on the table in front of me when it happened, someone must have stood on the breaks (we were informed later that the emergency break was used even) and both my phone and coffee went flying. The train was pretty full despite all of its train sets and I am very grateful that there was no-one sitting across from me since I was a bit slow in catching the coffee cup. Whoever sits down on that seat might get a little wet on their behind.
Then we sat there, in the tunnel not moving, I feel for all the people that are not happy with tunnels, it must have been an uncomfortable experience, especially when the smell of burned rubber starting sifting through the air con system.
I was very divided this morning, I do love the book I am reading at the moment, and are very happy for each moment that I don’t have to put it away. At the same time I was very hungry and for each minute ticking by the chances of me making it to work before the staff in the canteen came out to remove the breakfast got smaller.
After about ten minutes we were told that the lights would go out, the lights didn’t go out however the train started moving and stopping…I was a bit quicker on the coffee this time and it didn’t spill. The next time the train started to move I decided to just hold on to the mug.
Usually the train drive so fast over the bridge that you don’t really have time to see much, today we crept over, and it was a beautiful morning people blue sky and sunny (did take manage to move my attention from the book for a few minutes to check out the view). The trains that left Malmö after us also had their chance to overtake our slow train, big action on the bridge this morning!
There is a rule saying that if a train is more than 20 minutes late, I receive a free return ticket between Malmö and Copenhagen. This morning I guess they made a quick calculation on what would cost them the most money, and then decided to not stop at the airport, I hope that no one missed their plane for it!
And for me, the rest of the trip went pretty smoothly and they managed to catch up on a lot of the time, thus when I came into the office it was only 9:05 and the canteen staff hadn’t removed the yoghurt yet, so I did get me some brekkie. Now let’s wait and see what the return has in mind for me.
