By no means have I done this for very long, but I’m already sensing that each day there’s a different theme… Today’s theme seemed to be PERSPECTIVE. .
1- Picked up a gaggle of girls from Chipotle, “Your van is so clean” Something I never thought I’d hear!!
People warned me about all the drunk students I would be transporting, but no one warned me about the foul language they’d be using!! Just in general conversation, every other word was a cuss word… I began to wonder if they had some kind of secret competition between them, who could say the most potty words on the way home...which was on Greek row. When the sista informed me of where they lived, she puckered her lips and glanced my way, nodding her head... Maybe she thought I would be impressed, but honey, it takes a lot more than that to impress me...I mean, have you seen the way the gals at Chipotle mash up 20 avocados at a time?! 🙌 .
2- My favorite one of the night!! .
This young lady needed a ride to WORK and summoned an Uber because her car had been over-heating. She lives off campus & is a sociology major. On the way to a restaurant that is well known for pasta, she & I came to the conclusion that before any student graduates they should be required to work in some sort of service job!! Go us!! She was very relatable in that she hasn’t had money just handed to her!! .
3- First dude of the night, picked him up at a hotel where he’d been in driving school for 9 hours, apparently he did a big no-no while driving and it was either this class or his license would taken away!! He’s from GA where he was accustomed to 💯 percent humidity and temps that never dipped below 60 degrees!! He stated that he was cold already here in VA and was ready to bundle up in a snow suit...I don’t think he’s going to make it... .
4-Final run, A co-Ed group from off campus. One of the ladies dressed like crocodile Dundee, with camouflage pants & a Safari hat. The guy in the very back swayed from side to side, the smell of alcohol filled the van, & I discreetly opened all the windows! No puking tonight, my friends!!
