On Wednesday, I broke down on the commute home from work. In the busy rush hour on one of the busiest a-roads in Cardiff. My clutch went all the way to the floor and didn’t come back up again. I managed to grind me gears and get across to the hard shoulder. I only had 7% battery on my phone, after calling breakdown recovery. With only a pen and paper, I whiled away the time by writing my thoughts from the side of the road.
