Look what happened now...
WARNING: I cuss a lot here..
While in Vegas another odd thing..
I was catching a shuttle to the mall, popped on and asked the driver if he was in fact, going to mall. (Note here boys & girls if you have ever popped on a bus and ended up ELSEWHERE than where you THOUGHT you were going you learn to ask EVERY TIME.) Free travel tip #101 - your welcome.
So as I climbed aboard & driver said, "You must be from the East Coast." I was dumb founded. "What?"
Whole bus, which is full, now turns to stare at me. :0
"Where are you from? It's the East Coast, right?" He tries again.
I find a open seat and shake my head no...
Bus driver: "You sound like your from the East Coast."
Me: Shaking head no, again. (Pretends to look out the window, at my shoes, at anything.)
Bus driver: "Where are you from?" Turned around in seat looking at me.
Me: Wishing the Fucking bus would MOVE, still shaking head No
Bus Driver: Getting louder, "Where are you from Lady?"
All passengers looking at me...Bus Still NOT MOVING
Me: I had to think a minute, where am I from? Where do I call home? What country? What Language do I answer this annoying man in? WTF?? Has my life changed that much that I don't even know where I'm from? And then I was struck by how RUDE this was, especially by French standards...Wait, what? I'm in the U.S. I should tell him U.S. Oh I know!
Me : "Texas. I'm from Texas."
Bus Driver: "No, your not."
Other passengers: "You don't sound like it."
Me: What the Fuck? "Yes, I am." (Wondering now if I should get off the bus & run for my life.)
Bus driver: "Well you don't have that twang in your voice"
Other passengers: Sea of shaking heads agreeing with driver & murmuring to themselves in agreement about me.
Me: Quietly, "Well I have lived other places.."
Bus Driver: "Well I guess that explains it." and finally puts bus in gear & off we go...
OMFG! What kind of fucking, twilight zone, fucking dip-shit, hell am I in?? Cover your ears, boys & girls because who knows how that must sound in my freaky, accented voice?!?!
OK, I had this at the end of the post about Instagram images (that I just posted) and decided it should not be on there, too much cussing..sorry. Well, actually No, I'm not sorry. It was a true story and that's how it went. People can be so CRAZY sometimes...I know the driver didn't mean anything by it, or the passengers, but um, really? Come on.. * ___ *
Leave me alone, I was on vacation too. I didn't ride to Vegas on a horse, wear cowboy boots or a hat. So I can't be from Texas? And WTF, me? What the HELL do I sound like? I have really become a world citizen, wow.
Moral of this story: Travel is good for the soul & people should just shut the fuck up and do their jobs.
Just a Woman in the World. Sometimes a lonely traveler, sometimes with the Krewe. Eating, shopping and meditating my way through life...
