monday july 7

today i was standing at riverside and wonderland at around 7:50, waiting to catch the 10-wonderland bus to work. as it finally approached, i stepped up expectantly, and was disturbed to see the bus drive right on past without stopping to pick me up. too full! convinced that they must have a backup bus coming, with such an overload of passengers, i waited patiently. and kept waiting for another half hour until the next bus came. over the course of this half hour, the hypothetical speeches i'd deliver on the phone when i angrily called london transit grew in intensity, though by the time i arrived at work and no one seemed to really care that i was 15 minutes late, this anger had abated considerably.
