Friday was a big day: I had a job interview! At eight o’clock in the morning! Thirty-one miles away! And I don’t have a car!
So I asked one of my friends at the shelter if I could impose for a ride. The answer was yes — until about three o’clock Thursday afternoon, when said friend had to bow out because of a doctor’s appointment that hadn’t made it onto the calendar. (Boo from my admittedly selfish viewpoint, but hurrah for reminder calls!) And no one who had the means and the desire to provide me a ride was able to do so, due to prior commitments.
Here follows An Adventure in Public Transportation, and How I Did in My Interview.
