In a perfect world...

Postby bgd » Mon, 03 Jun 2013 3:12 pm

School holidays have started because the traffic at 7am this morning was like a Sunday.

Imagine if children could only walk, cycle or catch public transport to get to school. Less traffic, fewer fat kids, less cars so lower personal debt and so on.

Like the old days I guess.

Dreaming I know, but what if….

Bad: I got woken up at 8am on Sunday morning :shock: from a voice over the loudspeaker at Toa Payoh Stadium booming 'ARE YOOOOOOOOOU READDDDDDDDDDDDY?' in preparation for some sort of school holiday sports day event...

Good: Got a seat on MRT at 7.30am today :lol:

So it's pretty obvious who is responsible for the massive traffic congestion and slow movement now. SOCCER MOMS IN THEIR SUV/MPVS! Same problem the world over.

Hey, my kids are still in school. I'm still dragging my Boden clad ass out every morning with my fat kids.

I hated the mornings in my university when I still lived nearby when I started working. The high and primary schools were in the same campus and all the chauffeured little brats would congest all roads!
