name of dream: broken eggs
about to board a coach
the driver motioned the passengers to come aboard
i was first in the cue of three or four
the luggage compartment was at the back of the coach and to get to it we had to walk down the aisle of the bus
the driver was at the luggage area ready to take our bags and what have you
i had a wheelie
he took hold of the wheelie and threw it half a metre into the back of the compartment
it fell sideways and the three boxes of eggs that were on the top of the shopping fell out
the eggs were in boxes of six in those flimsy transparent egg-boxes and at least three of them broke as they fell out
because the egg containers were see-through it looked worse than it was and it caused two of the people behind me to make a moaning sound
i was miffed and pressed home the point while the mood was right... "thanks very much" i said sarcastically
the driver had goofed big style and he knew it
he whipped out his wallet and offered me a tenner
i said "it's alright. i was going to give you a fiver tip but i'll keep it and that will be about right"
the driver said "thanks, john"
don't know how he knew my name
the scene changed an now we were parked on the left-hand side of a road
out in the country
the bus had conked out and two or three of us were standing at the back of the coach
we were looking down the road we had just come down to a junction which was four hundred metres away
the road had just the two lanes and was surprisingly busy with one in three of the vehicles being heavy goods lorries
we tried to wave a vehicle to stop but because the road was just the two lanes, and was made to look small because of the size of the lorries, no one stopped; it would have been adding to the congestion and made the situation worse if not dangerous
someone suggested going to the junction for help or it might have been to wait for the emergency rescue vehicle and everyone looked at me
i wasn't mobile enough to walk four hundred metres alongside a road with no pedestrian path
besides, it was dangerous
we were thinking about what course of action to take when the dream ended
time-tense: can't make sense of the time-tense of this dream
why didn't we use a mobile phone ?
didn't the mobile phone came out before wheelies ?
