I've decided to back out of my date with the bus driver. He used to drive one of the student groups to events, but they stopped using him. The sponsor had to remind him that these were college girls, and they were uncomfortable with his flirting. A male and female student on this particular truth described him as creepy, and said that he "weirdly hit on" one of the girls.

Those of you that know about the crush I had on a student worker my first semester here probably find this ironic. But I NEVER acted on it, and always thought it was inappropriate. And I was only three years older than this guy. Bus driver is 36 and hitting on 18-22 year-olds. No. And he smokes. If I was cruel I would post a picture of him so you could see for yourself how old he looks, but I won't.

So when he calls back I am going to tell him I am uncomfortable with our age difference, and let that be the end of it.


Tonight the Daily Show and the Colbert Report are broadcasting the Midterm Midtacular live from 10-11 p.m. CST on Comedy Central. Their humorous and ironic take should be entertaining. In case you've never watched either show, they do a great job of pointing out the ridiculous and hypocritical in events, circumstances and people. And they seem to excel during election cycles. Watch it and laugh!

I hope everyone voted. It's probably not too late where you live, so get out there and exercise your constitutional right to help decide which direction our country is headed!Besides, you can't complain if you don't vote.

In light of this new information I think you are safe with your decision. But I stand by my comment on the former post!

Wendy said...

Yeah, that new info does make things too creepy.

I did vote, but Mel Hailey still lost. Sad day.

This bus driver saga cracks me up...why do guys have to make things so wierd? I can't wait to hear what creepy/confusing/stupid things he says when you cancel. Hope you get to just leave a message!

I gotta agree with this one. We're back to whole "listen to the creepy-meter" vibe. Being straightforward would be good for all parties involved, I think.

You've found your way out. Take it! I voted and am relieved that I am now secure in my right to complain!
