It was the same every day, always too late to catch the first ferry and had to wait in line for the next. The crossing took twenty minutes, loading and unloading another twenty each, so that was an hour.
How he wished there was some other route he could take instead of just sitting here waiting with the rest of the regular crowd.
Hello? What’s this?
The guy in the HGV had opened the back of his truck and was handing out free sodas!
‘It’s OK,’ he said cheerfully. ‘I got the OK from management to do this. Good PR they said.
Sorry I can’t offer spirits, but a cool drink on a hot day has surely got to lift ours. Cheers everyone!’

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
