Last, Friday as I left to the train station I realized that I left two of the most important things home. My passport, and credit card. I didn't make a really big deal about it because in my bag I always carried my ID, and my resident Permit, and some yellow card which is the social security here. Plus, I didn't mind bringing my credit card because I was gonna save money.
I was going to a Rotary Conference that was like on the other side of my city, close to Copenhagen. Everything was great, the conference was fun. First day, we just chilled and relaxed. Friday was our free day, and then on Sat we had a few activities, and then a Halloween party at night. The following morning we all left to the train stations to go back home. Now this is where the struggle begin.
All trains, were getting delayed so that kind of brought a confusion. I was suppose to get on a train that was going to take me home around 3. Now, as I was looking for a train, I realized I had a few friends on the same one. So, now I wasn't to scared. (IDK why but these things about the trains get me nervous lol) Anyways, so we get on the train, and the lady that starts asking about tickets comes along our way. My heart was pounding, because I was afraid she was going to ask for my passport. Before, I go any further when the lady who checked my ticket on my way to the conference didn't say anything but this lady made me cry my soul out. She come to us, and then asked for my passport. At first she was speaking to me in danish, and then I told her I didn't understand. I told her I didn't have it, and quickly I felt as if her blood was burning in flames because she just got so pissed off. I told her I was exchange student blah blah, I had all these ID cards, and she just kept yelling at me, and saying I either needed my passport NOW, or get of the train (I was HOURS AWAY FROM HOME), or I needed to pay 700 KR. My heart was pounding sooo hard, I didn't know what to do. She was being sooooooo rude, and stubborn saying she didn't care, rules are rules and apparently I didn't know them. I was so afraid. But then, a man that was sitting in front of me started talking very loud to her, I'm pretty sure they were arguing. I didn't really understand much, but all I understood was that he said "They are with me, give them a break," after a few minutes of that.. she looked at me as if I should of been ashamed of myself and let me go. AS SOON AS SHE LEFT I STARTED TO CRY ALONG WITH MY FRIENDS but then we ended up LAUGHING because they went through the same thing at some point hahahahahahah. I told the man thank you, and he just smiled. He didn't say anything, but if it wasn't for that man IDK what would've happened to me..
Now, three hours later passed. and I realized I was on the wrong train. I was suppose to get off before my friend, but instead she got off first. I quickly got up, and asked for help and they told me that I was on the wrong side of the train. So being in like 3 mintues, I was about to aboard off. As soon as I walked to the train doors the doors closed on me. My friend and I started clicking sooooooooo many buttons and none opened. My friend who was outside, dropped her suitcases, and raaaaaaan to get the train lady. Once she was nowhere to be seen, I was in shock because I didn't know what to do. I was going to sit back down, but then a miracle comes to me. The train lady gaved me a chance of getting off the train. As soon, as I got off my friend was already gone, and there was nobody but to old ladys. I was terrified, but inside I still laughed it out because I couldn't believe this was happening to me. The problem with the train was that I was on the correct one, but on the wrong side and I didn't know trains even had that.
Now, I approached the old ladies, and I told them what was going on. They were soooo stubborn, because they kept telling me I needed to buy a new ticket that was like 92,00 KR. My plan was to get on a new train, and show them my tickets and explain to them as well, but they ladies kept telling me "Oh noooo noooo you can't do that." At this point I didn't know what to do. I didn't even know where I was lol. So after having that small discussion, I really didn't want to hear them anymore. I told them thanks, and I left. I walked around the station, and suddenly saw a blue bus that had my city in it. I quickly ran to the bus driver, told him what was going on and that I didn't have money, but I did have my bus card, I didn't know if he was going to accept it because this card only has specific routes I can go to. At last, he told me to calm down, and that he was going to take me to the city. He had a smile in his face, and to be honest I wondered what was so funny. But as soon as I got on the bus, he told me he knew my struggles because he as well was an exchange student. He went to INDIANA, in a city called Lawrence. I WAS FINALLY GOING HOME HAHAHA.
Instead of coming home at 3, I came home at 7. But yeah guys, that's my Sunday story. :D
