No Lift to Work

I mean come on, I was already leaving after all
when I received that holographic call
to be told that I’d have no lift to work today.
Due to technical difficulties I’d need another way.
With sinking heart I realised the local shuttle service
was now the only way I would get to the office.
The predictable happened and I just had to wait
because they couldn’t tell me by how much it was late.
So I had nothing to do except reflect on the frustration
caused by having to commute to an orbital station.
