Waiting for the bus… Until you want to kill the bus

So I was waiting for the bus today (I’m great at stating the obvious), and it didn’t come for half an hour, no big surprise here. If it was warm and sunny, I wouldn’t mind, but it’s chilly. Yeah, the sun was in the sky, but it has no warmth. I was standing there, in the in the cold, bored out of my mind. I’m sure these of you who take the bus can sympathize with me; we know that feeling when waiting for the bus all too well. Can it get any worse than standing for half an hour in the cold? Yes, it can, when you find out you have to pee. I don’t really want to leave to find a washroom, I’ve already waited this long, what if the bus comes while I’m away.

Across the street, there’s a crowd of people lining up for free hot dogs. They are also holding signs and posters and chanting about Jesus while trying to convert people walking by to Christianity. I got to admit, it is quite amusing watching them parade around chanting and handing out hot dogs to people. I decided to cross the street and line up for a free hot dog, and just know what happens. The stupid bus comes.
