The Minor Rage of a Missed Flight

by NB Armstrong (April 2013)

At Milton Keynes Bus Station he says passengers can have five minutes to grab a cup of tea. This is because there are long hold ups between junctions 15 and 20 on the M25. We will enter the M25 near junction 20 and depart for Heathrow at junction 15. This is when it again becomes apparent that I am going to miss the flight. An elderly lady on the front seat adjacent to mine mentions something about connections and time. The stooping coach driver has a default response for such remarks: passengers are supposed to allow three hours between expected arrival time and departure. But who does that? He is now making it apparent that I am going to miss the flight.

This is when it also becomes apparent that I am going to miss the flight.
