I’m sitting on a Greyhound Bus, waiting to start my next 30 Plus Teams Tour .
Lately, Greyhound has been having a lot of issues with their buses and drivers .
My bus was supposed to leave at 11am, non stop to Baltimore , Maryland .
Or so I thought.
(Yeah, this is where I’m going to and there will be a few posts from my 30 Plus Teams Tour of Baltimore.)
When the bus finally left, 20 minutes late, I do what I usually do on the bus.
I was in such deep sleep that when the bus stopped, I was ready and eager to get off until the driver announced where we really were.
“WILMINGTON , DELAWARE . BALTIMORE , MARYLAND NEXT STOP.”
Wilmington , Delaware ?
What kind of express bus is this?
Then I looked at my ticket.
Whoops, “senioritis” has set in.
I forgot .
When I return to New York City on Tuesday, God willing , the bus will be non stop.
Going to Baltimore, the 11AM bus ALWAYS stops in Wilmington .
Why couldn’t it be the other way around ?
Greyhound make that stop on the way back to New York City , I’m not in that much of a hurry to get back.
Why is it that no matter how you travel, it seems to take FOREVER to get to your destination , but when you’re returning, it’s as though your bus driver, train conductor or even the pilot, is auditioning for the newest Fast and the Furious movie and gets you to your home city in no time.
Or is that just me that they seem to get back to New York City way quicker than I really want to get there ?
Oh well for right now, I’m not thinking about New York City .
We just left Wilmington and I have another hour and a half before I get to Charm City, aka Baltimore .
I think I’ll go back to sleep .
