The Wheels on the Bus go Round and Round
This is a totally random story, but there isn't much else to report so here it goes. Chris works in the main state government office in Las Vegas. I didn't think IT work was a dangerous position, but last week every one in the building was evacuated because of a suspicious package. There was police, bomb squad the works. They had everyone walk down the street to a field to wait it out on the bleachers. This all started about 2 p.m. and after a couple of hours they told everyone they could go home, but they weren't allowed to go back in the parking lot so Chris couldn't get his car to come home. This might be annoying to some people, but Chris was excited by the prospect of taking the bus. (I know he's a little off sometimes). He figured out the route and which bus he needed to take, but when he got on he couldn't find his money and he got the boot. Lucky for him there were some rule breakers who got their cars out of the parking lot, one of which was his friend, so he was able to get a ride home. He was so bummed that he didn't actually get to ride the bus, that he decided to take it home the next day. It was all fun and games until the next morning when he had to leave the house at 6:40 a.m. to be at the bus stop on time. I know there are many of you who get up much earlier than that, but around here we really aren't morning people. I think he got it out of his system for a while because as entertaining as he thinks the homeless and drug addict passengers are they aren't worth a 6 a.m. wake up call.
