New mum jealous of her partner's commute
THE mother of a two-month-old baby has admitted she is jealous of her partner’s two-and-a-half hour daily commute.
Jo Kramer, aged 32, confessed that she resents every moment of partner Tom Booker’s lengthy commute in the dark which takes up almost half a day of his life every week.
She said: “He swans out of here at 7.30am with nothing more taxing awaiting him than a 20-minute stroll in the rain then a leisurely wait on a cold station platform.
“The freedom! Once he’s on the train he can sit down, read a book, look out of the window, or go and buy himself a coffee without anyone screaming in his ears, the lucky b*stard.
“And then he gets to wander through a city, unencumbered, calling in at whatever shop he likes without having to drag a bloody pram up and down the steps.
“At the end of the day he gets to do the whole thing again. And he has the nerve to complain about the cost of his season ticket. I’d pay ten times the price.”
Booker said: “My train was delayed for 90 minutes because of a signalling failure last week. I don’t know if I’ve ever been happier.”
