Yes. I missed two days this week because of car problems.

But if anyone at the organization is going to doubt my commitment, they need to know how I’m getting to work tomorrow.

I’m starting with an 8am local bus to get to the next, larger town. That ride takes about fifteen minutes.

At 10:30am I’m taking a Greyhound from the larger town to the town I work in, about an hour away.

When I get there at noon, because the bus takes me through a quick stopoff at another neighboring state, I am going to walk halfway across town to get to the actual program space.

Because public transportation more or less shuts down there by 4:30pm, my supervisor says she will drop me off at a large town shy of halfway home in THAT state, where a friend and neighbor is already doing something but will be going home at around 7:30pm and can give me a ride.

So I’ll get home at around 8:15pm.

This will be costing me a third of the day’s pay, which is better than a rental car which because of my age would have cost me MORE than a day’s pay.

If my supervisor says anything negative to me (because I told her yesterday that I may not be able to get transportation today, she didn’t line up a sub, and the club couldn’t open today), I am going to explode in a wits’-end display of rage and tears.
