“Most of American life consists of driving somewhere and then returning home, wondering why the hell you went.” ~John Updike

It’s a three day weekend, Monday is a federal holiday. Just sitting at home, minding my own business, Sunday night, 9:00 pm and the phone rings. I do not know the woman, but she is with the school bus company that has been horrendous over the years.

Hi Mr. Smith, this is Brenda with XYS Transportation, is your daughter ready for school?

WTF? Is it me or is this a bizarre time and an even more bizarre wording?

Ummm, no, but she will be Wednesday morning.

Wednesday? We are picking her up at 8 am on Tuesday.

Well I guess she won’t be late for school, since it starts on Wednesday.

I quickly double check the school schedule printed from the web site earlier that day, and the letter from the principal received last week. 

If you do send the bus here on Tuesday, please tell the driver not to wake us up, okay?
