I should have taken BART.... oh wait
What a shitty, shitty couple of days to have to haul my ass into the city. Yesterday, rather than take my chances with the protestors I decided to grab the company car and do a grand pick up tour at our different offices, then keep the car overnight. I offered to go back over the bridge people up if needed, but no takers. Made record time out of Oakland. I have heard that other people were not so lucky, sorry to anyone who got stuck in the city for a while, but I atoned for it today. I also had to buy an overnight permit for my car and leave it in the lot... again. It better be in one piece when I get back.
That set me up for this morning in the car, what a hellish commute that was. It took me almost 2 hours to do what is normally a 45-50 minute rush hour commute. The stop and go to the bridge started at MacArthur. I lost track of how many trains went by while I was sitting there. It was like the entire population of the east bay decided to drive today. Good thing I gassed up before I left instead of waiting until I got to the city. The jerk who took the car before me left it on fumes.
Can we just get back to normal please? This is getting old real fast. I'm tired of having to bum rides and leave my car because BART is getting shut down.
