The Bus People

You know how we're just plugging along thru life trying not to look stupid? Most of the time I do a pretty good job...but I have my moments. Have you ever said anything stupid and then those who heard it will never let you live it down?  Yeah......Well, I said something stupid ONCE in my life and I am not sure that I will ever live it down.

It was back when I was a senior in high school. It was just right before my high school graduation. Now, I was a hard worker as a kid. I had had a job since I was a sophomore in high school.  I was rolling in the dough if you know what I mean.  Anyway, I had just accepted a job to be a summer sub working at Pepperidge Farm.  They paid really good, $11 an hour and that was back in 1990! The only problem with the job is that it started 2 weeks before I graduated. Lucky for me I was scheduled to work the night owl shift. I started work around 10:00 pm and got off around 7:00 am.  I then booked it to school and put in my time there and then came home to sleep.  Easy Peasy!  I was young!  I could handle a little fatigue!

Well, I guess that you could say I was a little tired and the hours I was putting in were starting to get to me.  Not only was I working full -time and going to school full-time, but I was dreaming I was working too.  You see I worked on the cookie line and all my hours of sleep I was dreaming I was cupping cookies. Cookies coming at me so fast and I was nowhere good enough to pick them all up when I first started. AUGH! It was a nightmare! If you have ever worked there you will know of my dilemma.

Anyway, after school I went down to my room and started my dreaming shift. I don't know what I was dreaming this time, but I bolted out of bed and ran up the stairs and burst into the kitchen and YELLED...." Are The Bus People Here???" My family burst out laughing. They were like what are you taking about. I was like the "The Bus People...when are they going to be here?" This went on for a little while..... my family were idiots...of course they should know what I was taking about! THE FREAKING BUS PEOPLE!! Have you ever had that wake up moment and you know that what you have been saying was crazy......well, at some point in time I had that realization! Man, what can you do at that point?  I just hurried back down the stairs and went back to bed.

I am pretty sure at the time of my outburst we were having a family reunion with all my family on both my parents sides because everybody seems to know about this little incident of mine. I will never in this lifetime live this down.....whenever I see my family they think they are so smart and mention the bus people.....they are so very clever! GIVE A GIRL A BREAK!  I WAS TIRED! Well, now you know the story of the Bus People...

Anyway I gotta bus just pulled up out front!

It turns out that the Bus People are real!  There is even a book about them!
 Also, there is a movie about Bus People.  This looks freaking terrifying......I think I will skip it!
