SMILEY SATURDAY - Is this train running on Sundays ?
More participants here
Some trains don't run on Sundays. Therefore I called the Belgian Train Infomation service just to ask this one question. "Is the train to X running on Sundays ???"
I dialed the number and got immediately an answer, but not for my train ! I heard a friendly female voice :
Voor flemish .... n° 1
Pour français ... n° 2
Für deutsch .... n° 3
For english push n° 4
I pushed on n° 2
The voice asked me if I want informations about trains in Belgium or international trains. Telling me which n° to push. I pushed 1 for the Belgian trains.
Now the voice wanted to know if I needed the ticket fee or the time schedule n° 1 and n° 2
I pushed n° two !
Now a voice told me that all lines were busy and that they would answer me asap. Music came out of my receiver. I switched on the loudspeaker, listened to the music which wasn't really my taste and started to make my bed, then the bed of Mr. Gattino, then I put dishes in the dishwasher, fed the always hungry cat Lisa for the X time, and finally went to the bathroom always carrying the phone with me. When I sat where you usually sit in a bathroom for some very personal business, a deep male voice suddenly asked me what I wanted to know and this sudden voice caused me a shock. I was happy to sit were I sat. I asked him "Is there a train to X on sundays" and he answered me "no".
Ok then I take my car.
