Public transport had left me stranded — then two kind strangers came to my rescue

Do you remember those comedies from the 1980s where a simple task — babysitting some kids, getting through detention — became the groundwork for a truly bizarre day? I had one of these instances last week. I live about 40 minutes from the city centre, and getting from A to B should be a relatively straightforward occurrence. Not this time. This time, I was a high-school jock and a drugstore scene away from being in my own farcical 1980s comedy. In fact, the film Leap Year, in which Amy Adams takes about six months to get from Dingle to Dublin, springs to mind.
