The Danish crewman was bringing up some special Lego models that are going to be used as prizes in school competitions, but I'm surprised by the short duration as well...

Comment not convenient... (Score 1) 654

OK, I have the luxury of having a bus service that during peak time runs past a stop only 300 metres away from my flat, BUT... it goes all the way into the city to the center where I have to walk 300 yards to catch the next bus out going past where I work... that runs every ten minutes as well so I paek time there is a maximum ten minute wait in the middle... unfortunately, with all the windy route and stops, it takes some 40 minutes (on bad days) getting to the center and the outgoing one takes some 40 minutes (again on bad days) getting to the stop closest to work... (that's as long as 90 minutes!!!) and it costs me some £5.00 a day for the privilege..

Car takes me some 15 minutes on good days when all lights go green, there's naff all other traffic and there's no crashes, road-works etc., takes 45 minutes on bad days and I'm able to use the many back roads I know...

cycling ALWAYS takes 35 minutes whatever the traffic...

the problem here is that you HAVE to do a spell as a PCSO before you can apply to become a real Policeman... this one was especially jumped up and keen and had probably read the charge book and remembered the abstraction of electricity charge and decided to try and get a 'gold star'...
