I got to the station and confused the woman at the ticket sales bit. I buy my tickets fortnightly, and I figured I'd get my next batch today (since otherwise I'd need to do that tomorrow anyway), and I'd get an off-peak ticket for today. The woman had a great deal of difficulty in grasping this simple idea. It went something like this:
"Hi, can I get 10 on-peak flexi-pass day return thingies to Glasgow and a single cheap day return for today please?"
"Oh you don't need on-peak tickets, it's Sunday"
"Yeah, that's what the cheap day return is for. I need the 10 day returns for travel during the week"
"Oh I see. So you mean you want 11 day returns"
Anyway, I finally got the correct tickets, then discovered I had a 75-shitting-minute wait till the next train to Glasgow. They're doing "Essential maintainance work" to the line at Haymarket (West Edinburgh), so the train had to exit Eastwards, and go alllll the way around Edinburgh to the West side, before going to Glasgow.
So, a 75 minute wait, then a 75 minute journey. Excelent. And of course after the wait, the train was packed. So packed that the refreshments trolley thing couldn't get through so they said if you want anything to eat/drink you had tyo climb through people to get to the back of the train to get it. Not that that bothered me, I don't have a house to re-mortgage to pay the extortionate prices.
In other news, my smart pointer class is fubar. Linky. I'm going to go and cry now.
