So my mom and I actually had to bus all the way there. My mom buses all the time, but back home, not to the west side. We got my cousin to drive us to Churchill Station because it was near where he worked, we didn't want to trouble him in driving us all the way there. We waited for our bus and when we got on, we wanted to make sure we had the right bus which actually went BY the Westside Chapters. Guess what the bus driver does? YELLS that we should get on the 111, he sounded like he was going to punch us any second. And then he basically kicked us off at a random stop, with NO bus 111. After that, my patience just started wavering. And pretty much everything aggravated me.
My friends tried to save me a seat there, but they wouldn't let them. HOWEVER, when I went it, I told them I had friends in there, and they said that if they saved a seat for me inside, then I can go in. So kind of just going with it, I went in and they said I had to get to the back of the line because they didn't save a seat for me.
Well excuse me if you didn't let them save a seat. So for those few brief seconds of walking away to the back of the line, these STUPID things called emotions took me over. So I kind of broke down in some aisle with no people. Except for Melissa, who I think was sort of a leader of this event. And she got me a seat, because I was crying. All I really needed was a minute to sort of cry or whatever, and I'd suck it up then line up.
I was beating myself in my head for crying, but I mean, I just got yelled at by a bus driver, got on a bus, didn't know when to stop, and took 30 minutes more to drive all the way to West Edmonton Mall, then another 30 minutes to Chapters (when I really could have gotten off and just walked there in 10 minutes), then RAN what felt like a kilometre. Crying was pretty reasonable. Without further ado, the pictures, just to tell the story.
