To the Bus driver of the 61 bus route at about 2:50 pm yesterday (Monday afternoon), thank you so much for yelling at me for being late, while I carried my stroller onto your bus. I wouldn't have been late if the city/metro transit system took care of their bus stops and cleared them after a storm. And I probably wouldn't have been late if these new contracted bobcats did their jobs in the first place and cleared the sidewalks so my stroller could get through them. And I probably wouldn't have been so late if I didn't break three of my strollers during last Monday's storm because of the bobcats not doing their jobs correctly and not clearing the sidewalks enough. And I probably wouldn't have been late if I didn't fall on the ice that was caused by the bobcats not clearing the side walk properly. And I probably wouldn't have been late if I didn't injure my ankle while falling due to the bobcats not clearing the sidewalk. And I probably wouldn't have been late if I didn't need to ask a soldier to help me carry my five year old over the snow banks the bobcats left in the middle of the cross walk because this city has "spent all their clearing budget" on these stupid bobcats, so they're doing half assed jobs. And I probably wouldn't have been late if you weren't 10 minutes early....or 45 minutes late. I still have yet to figure that one out. So thanks, I needed a good yelling. PS: Thanks to the lady who held the bus for me and got called a Bitch for it. I really appreciate it and I hope I can get you coffee sometime to thank you.
