I had a habit of falling asleep on trains too, so I always set my alarm to 10 minutes before my train was scheduled to arrive at my stop to make sure I'm more than awake and prepared to get off on time. In short: Set your alarm! Every time!

Set an alarm next time so you don't miss your stop next time.....or drink coffee on your way to work so you don't fall asleep at all!

How on earth did you manage that? It's pretty sucky nobody has the decency to wake you up! I've had that in the past, thankfully I've always been woken up at my destination.

In fairness, I'm not sure how anyone could have known when he was supposed to get off. People ride trains everywhere in the Netherlands and in most of Europe.

How in the world would people know where you wanted to disembark? Do you have a sign pinned on you that states your destination? I'm so curious now...

Start writing the next great novel on the way back. Harry Potter 100x greater. Actually that's unrealistic. Just write a funny Facebook or FML post about it.

That would be a great idea to post it on FML so everyone could get a good laugh about it. Wait a second, I did read a post about it on FML.smh

In Canada, or at least where I come from, we measure distance in time. Interesting to see you do something similar across the pond! Measure time in distance.. Not as effective methinks.. ;)

Really? I usually measure distance by time. If I tell my friend that it takes 15 minutes to get somewhere at a certain time in the day, they'll be like "Oh, that's pretty close".

Let me tell u something else.... in the Netherlands 130 km is almost from one side of the country to the other side, depending on were u are going to! Guess u dont think that way either

11, that's what I am saying. We measure distance by time, whereas OP is measuring time with distance..
