I Never Could Get the Hang of Thursdays

Interesting day yesterday...work went fine...it wasn't until I left the office did things get a little crazy.

I don't know what you know about the Pittsburgh transit system, but just in case you're unfamiliar, if you get on the bus before 7 p.m. you pay when you get off and if you get on after 7 p.m. you pay when you get on, not difficult, but a little confusing at first. Anyway, I caught the 7:10 p.m. bus home annnnnd:



Bus driver: Pay before 7
Me: huh?
Bus driver: You pay before 7:00
Me: right
Bus driver: Right
Me: ummm
(we stare at each other or a moment...guy behind me pays...bus driver nods)
Me: ummm..okay.....
(I pay and look at my phone and it's like 7:07...whatevs...I felt stupie)

So that was fine...but just got me a bit confused...then I get home and go to walk inside...and I can't find my keys. I call Randie and she's still at work and my keys are on my desk. Great. So I've got about an hour to waste till Mike gets home to let me in. So I talked to about 5 peeps on the phone and took these lovely pics of our solar lights we put in last weekend and some flowers.






Mike stops home and lets me in but has to leave again to help a friend move some stuff. I get a call about 20 minutes later...HE locked the keys in the car. Sooooo my AAA membership got some use and everything was fine. I guess my absent mindedness is rubbing off on him! haha

I'm really not that big of a fan of Pittsburgh's buses... I've been here for, what, three years now? I know I've taken a bus less than 10 times. I just wish it was an easier system, or maps were clearer, or the PAT website was easier to understand...
