God bless anyone who gets off the Luas stop at Charlemont and trudges down the long, fiery path of hell in the mornings that is the Grand Canal.
Yeah, it’s pretty. Suuuuure. Pretty goddamn crowded AF at 8.30am with people almost knocking you in the water as they speed ahead to grab a decaf soy flat white before their morning meeting.
We hate you, pushy coffee people.
Here’s some thoughts that we’ve all had on this commute. Join us.
1. Right, this isn’t so bad
Sure I managed to get on the third Luas that pulled up this morning! Great start.
2. Oh. A queue to go down the steps
3. MOVE IT PEOPLE
4. Jesus my grandmother goes down steps faster than this
5. Okay okay okay
6. We’re on the canal. Fresh air.
7. Well, if dead leaves are fresh
