I am so mad.  I said I had to laundry yesterday.  I waited until later in the evening to do it so I could stay in the heat longer.  I took the bus to the laundromat, which was not a problem.  I got everything cleaned.  But, since I had not done it in a while my pile was pretty large.  Also, since the clothes are heavier they take up more room.  I had three bags to carry back with me including the anti freeze for my car.

There is always construction going on in this area.  As soon as they finish one project they have already started on two more.  So the major roadway was blocked off.  The bus driver threw us off the bus because she didn't want to go through the detour.  The road was pitch black.  No street lights were on at all.  There was construction workers and trucks on one side then moving traffic on the other.  There were no sidewalks.  I had to walk in the middle of the road against oncoming traffic with three heavy bags.

I couldn't see anything and I tripped and screwed up my knee.  It is so bruised and swollen I am having a hard time walking on it.  The free medical care that you can get when you are homeless is a long ways away from here.  I don't know what that driver was thinking.  There were five of us on the bus.  We could have easily been hit by a car.  The construction guys were yelling at me, and I finally told them to go find the bus driver and yell at her.  She is the one that dumped us off the in the middle of the road.  Stupid bitch.

I called the bus company this morning to complain.  She should lose her job for pulling a stunt like that.  They would be sued if something happened to one of us.  I am sure she won't lose her job, but she should.  Don't you think?


  1. That is a totally revolting development. Yeah, the bus driver should face some hard questions at the very least. I don`t know the particular transit rules regarding detours, maybe she wasn`t supposed to drive off route, but neither should she have dumped you out like trash.

    Glad though that you apparently made it back safely if not completely sound. Sorry about the knee. Baby it all you can so it can heal !

    You`re still in my prayers. Remember, I`ll be here at least until you are safe and in a permanent(ish) home ! ;-)

  2. That's messed up. Yes, she (or actually her bus company which would then likely discipline her for causing trouble) can and should be sued. YOU GOT HURT, as a direct result of her irresponsible actions. There are lawyers who you can talk to FOR FREE that will only take the case if they think you have one and only collect payment as a portion of what you get if you win. I would look into that if I were you.
    I am so sorry about this new pain for you and I hope that you are not hurt too badly & feel better soon.
    BTW, SignPainterGuy is my personal friend and a righteous, decent, and kind man. He means what he says & says what he means. I just thought I'd let you know that about your new friend; you would be hard pressed to find a more loyal person in your comments section.
    There are more people than you know who are praying for you. I am confident that things will improve. Hopefully the folks you've been talking to will have good results for you soon.
    Hang in there. (((hugs)))
