Tales from the Bus - Cont. from September 13th & 14th

September 13th (PM) - new bus driver=no whiplash. The downside is they don't go fast enough. Is there a happy medium?

September 14th (AM) - this morning I was sitting in a window seat waiting for the bus to leave and a lady came on with 3 big bags and I thought to myself "please don't sit next to me". But, I was the winner and she came trucking down the aisle with her bags in tow and plopped herself down by me. The largest bag found i...t's way onto my lap and another almost hit me in the sorry or excuse me. Geez!

Tales from the bus: The Beginning

This is the first of many installments of "Tales From the Bus".  These tales, though sometimes scary, are true.  These are stories which I have compiled from my own experiences taking the city bus to and from work.  For many years I was a short-time commuter and only had a 10 minute drive.  However, I have a new job and it just happens to be in downtown Minneapolis.  In order to save time, money and headaches, I have chosen to ride the bus.  I have now been riding the bus for over 3 months and have been posting the stories only on Facebook.  But, I have decided to try to reach a new audience as well as old friends.  If you are a fellow bus-rider or know someone who is, please tell them about my blog and feel free to add your own tales and comments.  Enjoy!
