The Magic School Bus: ODO 33
But now it is back to school days and school routine. Back to being Mr Mom and the Magic School Bus all put together. Let’s not forget, my wife works days and is out the door before 7:00. This leaves me changing diapers, getting little boys dressed, making sure the older boys got dressed, getting everyone breakfast, making sure the oldest has packed his lunch and has his homework, and then battling the sea of assholes on the drive to school every day. But that’s fine. I’ve got our morning routine down. I’ve got alarms and backup alarms just in case so that we can get all loaded up and out the door on time. That is, of course, as long as the traffic doesn’t throw everything completely to hell.
Some days are fine. Other times we sit in traffic forever. I don’t understand it at all. I know I leave the house at the same time every day whether it’s work or school. I have my schedule for travel. If you are taking the same path everyday, barring an accident, shouldn’t the traffic pattern be the same? Shouldn’t the same assholes be going to the same places every day? Every day for me traffic is a total crap-shoot. One day may take 20 minutes the next could be 35, without any accidents or otherwise identifiable interference. Why can’t people just go the same way to the same place at the same time everyday? Why can’t other people figure out their path to work or school and stick to it everyday so that I don’t have to sit in gridlock with a van full of cranky boys arguing about whatever song is on the radio?
Sometimes I wonder what people must think when they see me sitting in traffic. Skinny ponytail guy in a bandanna with 4 cute kids in the back with Rob Zombie or Adele on the radio. Although there are probably very different reactions to those situations…
Bullshit From the News
Woman tells police she was RAPED by a Pokemon Go character after she felt an ‘assault’ | Daily Mail Online
A woman in Vietnam paid a stranger over $2000 to chop off her foot and arm and then claim to have seen them severed by a train. The ultimate goal being to make an insurance claim against the railroad and get a big payout. Ironically, after the investigation found the fraud, the authorities didn’t charge the pair with anything since there isn’t actually as law on the books to cover that situation. The police probably figured the loss of an arm and foot without the big payoff is punishment enough anyway.
