Oh brother! The bus I was coming home on broke down on the HOV - got it working but it died again ( broken belt ). 94 degrees OUTSIDE. Second bus comes but it only has 4 seats - needless to say I didn't make it on. Had to wait. Third bus comes - yup I was so far back - didn't make that one! Had to wait again. Finally the fourth bus and air conditioning - yay!!!!!

When I get to my car I'm heading directly to Chickfilet and getting a chocolate milk shake!! I deserve it! :-)

Oh Marty! I think today goes into the "let's go back to bed and start again" category all round.

This is why I don't love public transportation. I know they say Americans are spoiled but I do not like having to wait for things like that. I would rather just get in my car and go. I know you work in DC and taking a car would be a nightmare too. I am spoiled because I could walk to work if I wanted!!

Oh man you DO deserve a milk shake! Having lived in the DC metro for ten years, I've had my share of fun using public transportation. At least for me it was always the Metro, so at least we were waiting inside.

Update! Made it home safe. . .and I DID get my large chocolate milkshake with whip cream and a cherry! LOL.
I'm totally not a fan of mass trans but. . .we figured we were spending $500 a month just on gas to/from work, and with the bus I get the metro subsidy so now I don't spend anything! That makes me feel better even in the worst scenario :-). and the parking lot being next to Chickfilit doesn't hurt either!

Glad you are home safe! Try riding the bus with a bazillion other people standing in your personal space and grabbing your whochacha any chance they get! Yes, that happened...

I used to ride the bus to work here, loved it, but I never experienced a break down.

When we lived in the DC area, I rode the bus every day to work and home. I was young so it was fun. Came from a small town no buses.
