I am stuck on the train between Newcastle and London on a cold Sunday night. But all around me people are on mobiles, computers etc making arrangements to work around the delays. Hotels are being booked, taxis called for groups of impatient travelers.
This would have been inconceivable even 10 years ago. Life goes on and business is transacted. Certainly helps to lower the stress levels.
I am on my mobile talking to my wife for weather forecasts, surfing the Net to get delay info and txting as well.
Such is life in late 2010.
