monday november 5

today i got on a bus to go home and held up my transfer for the driver to see. generally, i wait until i get some sort of nod or "yep" or other affirmative action before i tuck it away and head to the back of the bus -- at least eye contact! this time, however, the driver was looking in the other direction, and didn't even glance at my outstretched transfer even though i hesitated an extra second. instead, she said "didn't i just drop you off?" to, i assumed, the guy who got on the bus ahead of me. when he sat down without acknowledging her inquiry, i began to become increasingly convinced that the question was directed to me, hence the lack of interest in my transfer. for the record, my answer would have been: "no."
