Now I'm not saying that spending several hours in an Industrial Relations Commission hearing as Queensland Rail and the train drivers' unions do battle over planned strike action is dull.
But it certainly allowed me time to explore my feelings via the medium of comic strip:
Terribly poor taste, isn't it?
As it turned out, a last-ditch, eleventh-hour meeting saw the strike called off, so it's back to the negotiating table for the train drivers. QR's already agreed to their $20,000-over-three-years pay rise, and they're now just talking turkey over Sunday rostering. I tell you, as a journalist - I really need to become a train driver.
Yeah, I'm bitter.
