I enjoy working night.
I like the flexibility it leave in my schedule.
But there is a down side:
Because I work so far away, I have a long bus ride to and from work. So when I go to take the bus, I can meet really interesting people.
Tonight, one of these really interesting people scared me onto the wrong bus.
I will start from the beginning. I walked to Hlemmur and went into a bus shelter to look at the schedule. A women asks where I am from. I told her: Canada.
Then she starts coming towards me and I begin to smell the booze....
She starts yelling:
I new it! I had a message sent to me from the mountains in Canada, the mountains in the middle of Canada. I knew I would meet you!
Oh, you don't believe me????? (I was wide eyed but did not say anything) I know you do not believe me, I have ESP. I know because he told me.
She was right in front of me, yelling. I said 'oh, there is my bus' and got on the closest bus to wait until my real bus came. Lucky for me the buses wait around a while at Hlemmur, and she was gone by the time I had to leave my shelter.
But I was frightened, and I am spineless. I could have just told her I did not want to talk to her and ask her to stop yelling, but I ran away.
And that's my story of the night.
