  • Waiting for a ride

Tuesday, June 15 ‘your cheatin’ ride’

I’m in the front seat of an older Mercedes Sedan after a 15 minute wait today. I love Mercedes. Classy, safe, well-designed cars, although this car is pre-airbag, so I don’t feel quite as secure. But still, it’s a nice ride. As I approached the Vallejo carpool area, 2 women were standing alongside the curb waving for a ride, holding up 2 fingers to indicate they both wanted a ride. This is the area before you turn into the car pool pickup – about a block from where the riders line up. Blatant Cheating, ladies! I join the long line of riders and we slowly shuffle up to the front of the line and then I see those 2 cheating ladies walking to the end of the now even longer line. Ha. No one would give them a ride. How sweet it is sometimes.

This is a no talk ride. KBLX radio. Another cool morning and as we approach Berkeley and the view of the city, there is no view today. Just fog stretching across the bay.

  1. Too funny. I never pick them up. I just wave.
