Oblivious to all the drama

I left home yesterday morning at 7.05 to catch the train to work. I walked into southern cross station and make my way to platform 10. The Flinders-bound train arrives and I get on. The train gets stuck for about 20 minutes somewhere between southern cross and flinders street. Nothing unusual. I arrive at Flinders Street, and walk to my connecting train which was already waiting at the station. As far as morning commutes go, yesterday was actually a good one for me and I was completely oblivious to the fact that there were train dramas until I overheard a woman talking about it to another passenger as we pulled out of Flinders Street.

It is not unusual to sit twenty minutes between Flinders Street and So Cross Station? It should be.

Gosh. From here in Sydney I don't know what the train drama in Melbourne was but reading your post I was struck by the same thought as Andrew's.
