Bus Stops


When I was a kid I took the bus, so I know how the whole thing works.  If I remember correctly, you’re supposed to wait outside at the bus stop for the bus to come.  Well nowadays it seems like there is a stop at every damn house because parents don’t want their kids to walk off their own property or something, who knows.  Anyways, all that means to me is stopping every 13 seconds on my way to work if I unfortunately get stuck behind a bus.  Ok, well today on my way to work there was this bus stopped, and it was stopped for quite some time.  I was wondering why, and finally I saw it.  This girl – looked elementary school age – was walking to the bus while doing something on her phone.  Are you kidding me?!  Not to say I’ve never been late in my life because that would be a lie, but I can tell you one thing:  if I was late and the bus was waiting for me, I was RUNNING to the bus, and then thanking Debbie, my long time bus driver, for waiting for me.  I was NOT walking casually without a care in the world, playing on my phone (or in my day it would have been a walkman).  KIDS these days!!  But, as much as you’d love to blame the inconsiderate 8 year old, I think we all know that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree…so lets tighten up your game here parents!

I just started eHT in January of 2011, and I'm shocked and humbled that people read it! For some reason it seems like I am always in the most ridiculous situations and witness things only seen in movies, so I like to share my experiences with all of you. Thanks for reading! xo
