Oh mah gawd, my morning was so awesome.

I overslept which led to needing to run to catch the bus. But I made it. I was out of breath and near passing out when I boarded said bus but I'd make it to work on time and that was all that mattered.
Once we started our journey I heard all kinds of abnormal rattling and the bus engine seemed to be running rough but the bus driver wasn't making any announcements and continued to drive so I decided to just close my eyes , tune it out and not worry.

I was so delighted when about five miles later we had to pull over on the freeway, because: guess what "engine troubles".
After said announcement we all sat and waited for 15 minutes with no heat for more news. The news, when it finally came, was that we would all have to disembark, ON THE FREEWAY.

After managing to sidestep all the vehicles coming directly at me at warp speed I boarded a new bus ,found a seat and tried to get comfortable.

The woman that decided to sit next to me called whomever to tell them she was running late and I thought it ruled that she had stank mouth and every time she uttered a word I'd get a huge whiff of de funk.

It was also particularly pleasant that her conversation was long and she did most of the talking. I tried my best to turn my head and hold my breath without passing out.

In the end, I made it to work...late.


Awesome, I tell you, simply awesome.

That sounds like it ROCKED. Too bad it wasn't pouring rain, that would have made it super fun!

About as awesome as having your teeth drilled...or cleaning up dog vomit. I did those last week.

And you survived without repremanding her for not washing out her mouth? Wow. Next time, when you havn't overslept (like I did today!), take some toothpaste, a brush and some mouthwash, just in case you see her again. You could even (in the spirit of Christmas) get it gift wrapped!

OH yeah Bus fun. Don't miss it. Paying out the ass for parking sucks, too but it's really very lovely. Even though I'm broke.

Oh, man... that sounds like too much fun. I'm so jealous.

I'm glad you can laugh about it, and even more glad you posted it so we could laugh about it. :-)

You know, I don't really think that you "saving the planet" and saving money, and all of that seems to be worth the stress of riding the bus. I would be preferring the comfort of my own car in standstill traffic to stank mouth lady (or cheese in her purse lady) about now. I mean yeah, you would have less blog fodder, but your sanity...I believe it would be in tact!
