The dog ate my bus pass

September 4, 2007 – Tuesday

A series of unfortunate events this past week are telling me I might want to reconsider taking the bus daily.

1. A bus driver decided she wanted a sandwich from Byerly’s more than she wanted to take the specified route. This left me with the choice of walking 1.5 miles home in heels or heading back to Knox and West Broadway to wait in the dark for another bus. I chose walking. In heels.

2. I had to run to catch the bus (which is never fun, but it happens) and ended up spilling my coffee all over my white dress. Now there is a great way to start the day!

3. The 6 I took from Uptown into Northeast stopped at Washington and Hennepin, leaving me to walk over the bridge in the beating sun.

4. I visited a friend whose dog is a fan of women’s purses. Among the things I lost: a bus pass with $40 on it. It’s a replaceable card (for $5) so it’s not the end of the world–but really?!

I also really miss driving my car. I got it five months ago and I haven’t put more than 1500 miles on it. How sad.
