Not Ranting

I went out in the car the other day in search of petrol. Out of the four service stations I found, three were already closed and one closed the pumps in front of me as I was waiting in the queue. The motorways seem to be relatively well provided with petrol but, in the car-dependent suburbs, a tankful of 95 really does seem to be like gold dust.

My friends from Italy were supposed to be coming to visit this weekend. They turned up at the station to find that their train had been cancelled due to the SNCF strike. In theory, they could have exchanged their tickets, but all the later trains were full. My friends from Italy are no longer coming to visit this weekend.

Not ranting. Just saying.
