ok, so my incredible journey today from Berlin to Kassel today...

ok, first off, we have two train stations where the ICE (our fastest train) stops in Berlin, East and Main. The friend I stayed it lives nearer to East plus it's where the train starts, so you always get a seat even if you haven't reserved one (6 euros, no ty). Naturally I thought I could get on the train there. Well, I know my Berlin public transport, so I left so I would've been at the east station half an hour early because I know my "Pappenheimer"... (idiots really)

then I had to change trains which went ok. BUT THEN. the train directly to the East station (as well as the Main station btw, it's just a matter of when to get off) starts to leave and then just stops. Driver tells us that there's a broken down train in the East station and so none of their trains in that direction can run, and could we please take the metro, busses or trams.
well, those don't run directly to the train station tho. we stayed on the tracks without moving FOREVER and I was already late-ish at that point, so I thought change in plans, I'm gonna go to main (it's there 15 mins later) and tried to take a metro/train combination.
well, one nervous breakdown later I was on the right train, and thought about making it just in time. train arrives at Main station, I see the ICE leaving....

AND I HAD A TICKET WITH WHICH YOU CAN ONLY TAKE ONE CERTAIN TRAIN BECAUSE IT'S CHEAP

then I went to the railways system people (the company also owns the breaking down Berlin trains...) and asked to have the thing with the specific train removed. Basically the woman I talked to acted entitled as fuck and accused me of lying..... ummmm...

well, in the end she did remove it, and I could take a later train at least. BUT HER FUCKING BEHAVIOUR I CANNOT!!

At least I am home now, and can get into the Christmas spirit, haha <3

Jaja, reisen mit der DB :D Immer wieder eine Freude. Meine Lieblingsannekdote ist als ich mal am 1. Januar von Berlin nach Hannover wollte und die Ansage kam, dass das Zugpersonal leider alkoholisiert sei und sie Ersatzpersonal beschaffen müssen. Da stand ich dann 2std bei -10°C am Bahnsteig. Fun times.

Oh mein Gott. Kann ja auch keiner von denen erwarten, an Neujahr zu arbeiten. Das sind so typische Bahnsachen, da reg ich mich schon wieder auf...
