I rushed and rushed to finish work early today. Kasper had an appointment with the specialist at three, so I needed to be done before 2 and I missed the bus this morning, so I did not have a lot of time.
So I was busy. Running around, finished my job then ran to catch the bus at 2:45.
For once the bus was right one time. We travelled along and then we stopped. And we stayed there.
We were surrounded by traffic.
After 20 minutes I asked the bus river what was going on. He said there was a car crash. We waited longer.
Finally the bus continued on its way, at a snails pace. Two lanes were still blocked by police cars and the police appeared to be on coffee break. You know, hanging out, chatting.
There was no sign of a car crash.
I arrived down town at 3:10. Almost an hour and a half after I caught the bus. The ride usually takes between 30-40 minutes, depending on the driver.
I ran to the school, got Kasper and arrived for his appointment half an hour late.
I admit, I am not very happy with this. Why was nothing done to clear the traffic to keep people going? In Edmonton everything would have been rerouted to minimize the disruption to the bus schedule.
I have never been so late or been so bored on a bus.
