Losing the plot
HAVING had cause to drop my granddaughter off at York Station, I left home at 8.30am and got there just in time at 9.30am.
As someone who has lived in York for all of my 60 years, I then had to plot a route to collect my grandson in Strensall. After toiling through horrendous traffic and collecting him, I finally arrived back home at 11am.
The previous day I had been in Chester, which took less time than the two-plus hours I spent running around York.
I had a lot less stress of being stuck in traffic, which not only raises my blood pressure but also my carbon footprint with the fuel used stop-starting.
How tourists not knowing the city plot the best route is beyond comprehension.
