Buses


Sometimes buses are not very punctual (= they donít arrive at the correct time). Where I live buses should run (= come) every ten minutes, but sometimes I wait at the bus stop for half an hour with a long queue (AmEng = line) of people, and then three buses come together, and theyíre all full up (= full of people, and no more people can get on). On other occasions the bus is early and I miss it (= I donít catch it. NOT I lost the bus.).
