Under the weather so taking the rest of the day off. Let’s see what Netflix has in store for me #tweet


Train home isn’t an Enterprise either. Bit much, like #tweet


Would you not also care to mention it’s now a commuter train, not an Enterprise? More than a mere capacity issue https://t.co/BOdrLoqkgf #tweet


So much for pre-booking my ‘Enterprise’ ticket when they’ve stuck us on a commuter train #tweet

There’s Irish Rail’s track engineers at it again with their noise machine in the middle of the night with no advance notice, sigh #tweet
