All Aboard the 784!

J'adore monter le bus! I really, really do love it! I feel good about doing my part to be a bit more "green" and saving Mother Earth one commute at a time. I mean what is better than driving just a couple of miles from home, puttin' er in park, and letting some other knuckle head deal with all the idiots in traffic (don't get me wrong-I'm an idiot too a couple times a week)? It is so simple to just hop on in the "grove" and get dumped off right at the corner where I hook, er ah, I mean work. The $2.75 ride each way even be the most economical (this may be the 1st time ever that I have been associated with the word economical) with gas prices at record highs. Plus, this "down" time gives me a chance to catch up on my latest trashy tabloid (I love US Weekly-more smut, less real life crap) or take in a couple chapters of my latest read (War and Peace-kidding-try The Manny). Above all the people watching here is unreal. You should see what some of these yay-hoo's wear to work; frump city (too harsh?). My only pet peeve, and when I say pet peeve, I mean in the strongest sense of the term... This drives me absolutely, 100%, freakin' nuts... ready??? Some guy gets on the 7:30am 784 each and every morning, jams his ear buds into his greasy ear canals and has the audacity to fall into a sleep sound enough to produce a disgusting, guttural snore so loud I can't believe he sleeps through it. Urrr-aahhhh! I dare him to board and sit next to me some morning, cuz I swear I won't be as nice as that little Asian lady is. The second he sets into his "cadence" my laser-accurate elbow is going right between his two floating ribs! Are you sensing a little pent up hostility this week? I know-a weekend of self medicating with cocktails/friends and I should be back to "normal".
Anywho, get yourself into the bloggy-carpool lane and swing on back tomorrow (don't act like you have anything better to do).

Yes I am gullible (I like to call it trust in humankind), but is that thing for real?? It does kind of look the streets of the city of the "better half". Cuz if I could ride that thing everyday--I just might go back to work, OK probably NOT!

I don't have any snorers on the 464, but 2 people irk me to no end - the one guy who has to either talk on his cell phone or just talk in general the WHOLE RIDE and the woman that I just want to walk up to and say "you need a MAJOR make over". She's mid-late 50's, short hair on top - half way down the back on the lower half of her hair (worst mullet ever)and no matter what day, what the weather, she wears chocolate brown pantyhose and white running tennies. HELP!

I have only once ever rode on public transportation. Another of my hang ups...but my love for the SUV may lead me down this path only to be able to afford gas.

I only work 12 minutes from home so there won't be any bus rides there. But I did take the bus when I was lucky enough to get called for jury duty. I loved it too, even on the day that I got on the wrong bus. The driver must have seen the panic in my eyes when I finally went to get off at the last stop because she offered to drive me to my car. She was going right by it so I let her! Good karma for her, no five mile walk in heels for me!
