1. Stepping on a loose paving stone and getting street-juiced

2. Doing that awkward little jog across the road while the Luas has stopped, and praying it doesn’t suddenly take off

3. Getting roared at by the crowd on the Viking Splash tour

4. Trying to take the steps of the Ha’penny Bridge in reeeeaaally looonnng strides

5. Thinking you can stand just fine on the Luas without hanging on to the bar, then being proved very wrong when it brakes

6. Getting caught in a tourist’s photograph and thinking “Great, now I’m in their holiday memories looking aggrieved”

7. When the bus lurches as you’re trying to get down the stairs and you fall just a little bit

8. Having to walk through the Busker Circle

9. Your bus flying past you because the driver has just decided “Nah”

10. Trying to navigate the Temple Bar cobblestones in any sort of heel

11. When a charity worker does a little dance around you to get you to stop and you want to scream “YOU ARE DEBASING BOTH OF US”

12. Squeezing on to the Luas at a busy stop and just throwing all concerns about personal space out the window

13. When a little pigeon flies at you and you panic despite yourself

14. When a seagull flies at you and you’re just like TAKE WHATEVER YOU WANT JUST LET ME LIVE

15. Getting caught on the bus with minus Leap Card funds and no change and praying the driver will take pity on you

16. And not knowing where the hell you’re going now because of the Luas works
