Scenario 2: Missing My Bus Stop
The bus ride is always an adventure. Within the last two weeks, I missed my stop not once, but twice! The first time, I knew I was getting close and was watching for the lady who gets off at the stop ahead of mine to get off. Well, she wasn't on my bus that day and zoom, past my stop we go. I looked out the window and saw Auto Zone which is about four or five blocks past my stop. (It was dark when I come home and it's very hard to see where we are, especially through the dirty bus windows.) Well, I get off and call my husband who was waiting for me at my bus stop with the car on my cell phone to let him know I went too far and was walking back so he should meet me at the end of our street. The second time, again the lady that I use as my cue to get off wasn't on the bus. This time though, I was only one stop too far.
What I learned: Do not count on that lady! Get up at the main intersection before my stop and watch for it.
