monday october 13

today i headed back to toronto from belleville after thanksgiving weekend, and was on the greyhound bus with a handful of people who hadn’t bought tickets in advance and needed to pick them up at the trenton station. this resulted in a bit of a delay, and once we finally got going again, the bus driver got on the speaker and threw some terrific shade at the passengers that held us up.

"it takes a while to buy tickets at trenton," she said flatly. "you can buy them online ahead of time. i’m sure your fellow passengers would appreciate that. we’re running 20 minutes late now. we’re supposed to get in at 11:25, but that probably won’t happen. i’ll try to make up some time on the highway but it was busy coming the other way. we’ll see."
