The race that stops a nation

Welcome to Melbourne cup day ………. apparently in Melbourne there is a public holiday , now I’m not sure if this is just Melbourne something like when the G8 thing was in sydney or the whole state of Victoria but you wouldn’t know it by the traffic this morning, yesterday I left at just before 8 and got to work at 845 today I left just after 830 mostly because of a not very well miss and not feeling ao great myself ….. Anyway I got to work right on 9 am, so there is very little traffic just like a public holiday would have
On top of the traffic quite a few have gone sick or taken the day off
So in reality even though the race stops the nation for 5-10 minutes it oficially only stops a city completely ……… Prehaps in an effort to reduce sick days it should become an official public holiday nation wide ……………. Hahahaha now that’s dreaming
