Green Room - Week 27 - Day 13

Public service announcement: A bus is bigger than your car. Unless you are driving a semi or an assault vehicle of some kind, if you attempt to merge into the lane currently occupied by the bus - you are going to lose.

Take this as an analogy for life - or as something that happened to me this morning while riding the bus. (Note: it's the latter. Although messing with people much bigger than you because "you can" probably holds some dangers as well)

The woman who hit the bus was fine. Her side mirror was left hanging - and everyone on the bus was annoyed, but OK.


What are people NOT OK with? Missing out on this week's poll! http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/803824.html

(Like how I did that? ;) )

So don't do it!!

It's already looking like it's going to be another "close race", so if you want to suggest any entries you think need a little more love - this would be the time to do so!

I am avoiding looking at the poll and also haven't finished reading, so no comment on what needs more love. Everyone wants to feel loved. XD

"Everyone wants to feel loved. XD"

Then why do they come here?

People come here for the abuse! ;)

This is a damn good question. I come here to angst about my writing, obvs.
Nov. 12th, 2014 11:18 pm (UTC)
I came here for an argument!

I don't think you're going to get one today.

Is this Room 12? I think I'm supposed to be in Room 12A.
Nov. 13th, 2014 03:14 am (UTC)
What a stupid concept.

I have about 30 more entries to read, so like you I don't want to comment on what needs "more love" until I have a chance to read them all!

But I do tend to sneak glances at how I'm doing in the poll, even before voting...

You're dead to me?

Everyone wants to feel loved.

Not *EVERYONE* -- Some folks feel undeserving of love...

The lug nut rule: Never go up against a vehicle with more lug nuts than yours. I was on a bus that was hit by an SUV once, I watched the driver on her phone, looking the other way, slide into traffic and into the bus just ahead of me. Nobody was hurt, but it was still really bizarre. I'm glad you're okay.

Wow - an SUV! I'm glad everyone was OK.

I was on the other side of the bus, so I didn't see what was going on. But everyone on the other side did.

She pulled over (into a construction area on the side of the on-ramp) and got out her car and started angrily banging on the door of the bus (who had pulled behind her) as he spoke to dispatch so they could call the police. It was more weird than anything else.

I can't believe the woman in that car survived unharmed. She was really lucky!

I'm trying to catch up with reading, since I've been up late for days on work stuff and wall-to-wall while AT work. Argh... :(

I am posting the 13th comment on the 13th day -

but mostly that just means it's slow around here. Maybe everyone is reading, which is what I've been working on. So much good stuff this week.

Guys! So! The comet landing! Guys!

(I was supposed to go to something at school, but I ended up missing it because I holed up in the computer lab watching the livestream. Probably freaking people out because I spent hours sitting there staring intently at a silent video feed of people milling around their office.)
Nov. 13th, 2014 03:02 am (UTC)
I know. I was really surprised that no one was talking about that today.

Then again - no one was talking about much of anything.

Hopefully that means they are busy reading and commenting on the actual entries.

The woman who hit the bus was fine.

I've lost count of the number of instances where I've been on a NYC bus that some idiot side-swiped. MTA regulations requires the bus to immediately stop and go out of service for even a minor incident... and more often than not, the other vehicle just keeps going and never stops to exchange info with the bus driver!

Definitely a close race, given that someone who was on elimination row went up six votes (all solo votes, at that) in four hours and is now in the top five.
Nov. 13th, 2014 06:35 am (UTC)
I had a pretty awful day today, but not as awful as the lady who drove under the bus, I bet. That's some consolation. I did get all the reading done! I also got none of the commenting done. Zip. Zilch. Zero. Sigh. I feel like it's getting harder as time goes on, and I'm not entirely sure why that is. I'm pretty sure it's entirely a me-thing, but dang, I need to get over it. But first, I need sleep.
