Hallo (I will NOT say from a cold and mizzie Germany. Refuse to ;)) From a Vibey Munich
I had a really dof moment today. Normally I do not share my dof moments because I have a rep(utation) to uphold. And pride. Appearances are mos everything, neh
I got the train (underground?) from office to the Hotel yesterday without hassles. Had the map, and the connections on hand. Same goes for the return trip today.
So before i leave the hotel, I check:
1. Map – ja
2. Ticket – ja
3. Connections – jawohl
4. Name of final stop – of course
Get the first connection. All good. Get off for 2nd connection and cross over to the waiting train. BIG mistake. The train nr was right but the direction was …yip, WRONG (at this point warning bells are going off, but I resolutely ignore them due to tatiegeit, i.e. slowness)
Conversation with self
OD: you sure this is the right one?
D: Yes I’m sure
OD: But didn’t we get off on the other side (track x) yesterday, so we need to go back there?!
D: No I’m sure this is the right one. See, the name is right
OD: But we got off, then took the escalators up, then down to the other side
D: Ja, but the train number is right, man!!!!
Note: D = me, OD = voice of reason
So myself and OD board Nr 2 direction —> WRONG WAY!!!
And immediately realised it was indeedie NOT the right one. Can you imagine what OD had to say
OD: See, I told you (you mos know that voice)
D: Just shurrup. We’re here, enjoy the ride
I felt VERY foolish. And stupid. DOF. I sommer get the giggles. And to crown it all, I nogals continue past FIVE other tops before actually realising I should get off, or else I will REALLY get lost. At this point OD was silent.
I made it here. A bit late and frazzled (prolly due to the weather).
It will NEVER happen again. (tightly crossing fingers)
