Get onto the bus

Well, Ive had it with the price of gas. Its almost $3 per gallon. Thats insane! Since work is about 60 miles away, it takes about 2.5 gallons of gas to get there, which means it costs about $7 each way to drive. THAT IS $14 A DAY!!! Who can seriously afford that? So anyway, I bought a bus pass this month for $50. I can ride UTA anywhere at anytime. So if I ride the bus 4 times, I have already saved $6 that month. Seems like a good deal to me. I have already ridden it 3 times this month.

Its actually quite entertaining to ride the bus. You get to meet some of the weirdest people. Seriously. Some guy got on at the airport, with no apparent direction, and just wanted to know if this bus would get him closer to Provo. So he got on, showed everyone his new RAZR phone and said how cheap it was for him to call his 3 girlfriends, one in Paris, one in Russia, and one in Texas. This guy was way overweight, and a definite weirdo. Then he told us how he doesnt do drugs anymore since the day he woke up in the hospital blah blah blah. Then he says his dad called him for the first time in 20 years. He said it was Gene Simmons. I had to look it up on the net to see who it was. He is from the band Kiss.

Anway, once the bus driver found out he wasnt gonna pay the fair, he had him get off at the next stop and said he needed to find another way to Provo.

And thats just on the first day. I still met the crazy-drunk-no-teeth-super-old lady. She was sure interesting. Also 2 women thought the entire bus needed to hear their conversation about their kids and their nannies. SERIOUSLY! What is wrong with people?

Anyway, I still enjoy it way more than driving alone listening to that weirdo Bob Lonsberry on AM570 in the morning. GAH, I hate that guy.
