Thoughts You Have When the Bus Is Late

“Did I miss the bus?”

 

“Okay, no, other people are here too.”

 

“Unless we all missed the bus.”

 

 

“Did I look at the right bus time?”

 

“Yeah, I did. It’s already one minute late.”

 

“Okay, if it comes in the next two minutes and doesn’t make too many stops along the way I think I can still make it to class on time.”

 

“Another minute — it’s fine, I’m fine, everything’s fine.”

 

 

“Does attendance count against my grade?”

 

“Ha, of course it does. 20%? LOL.”

 

“If the bus doesn’t come soon I won’t have a chance of making it to class on time.”

 

“Should I even bother going at this point?”

 

“I could squeeze in a quick nap before my next class.”

 

“I think I see the bus! Oh wait, it’s not in service.”

 

“Why didn’t I just take the earlier bus? Why do I do this to myself every day?”

 

“I deserve this. I have no one to blame but myself.”

 

“I don’t even care if the bus comes anymore, I’m over it.”

 

“I don’t need school, I don’t need a future.”

 

“I’ll just — IT’S HERE! THIS IS NOT A DRILL, THE BUS IS HERE! EVERYONE NEEDS TO MOVE, I WANT A SEAT. I DESERVE IT.”
