This morning started out really good. I had to meet with a couple of guys about youth ministry over at Starbucks. So, I woke up early, took a shower, and got ready for my day. After all that, I went for my half mile walk to my bus stop. At the stop, there was this family; a mom, a dad, their son, and their two little girls. I don't know what happened, but all of the kids just started screaming. A couple of minutes later I was starting to go INSANE!!!!
Finally the bus comes. I'm the first to get on. I forgot to say that the bus was empty. What happens next? The family decides to sit next to me. I got to thinking that it was going to be a while until I got to Starbucks. The kids are still screaming by the way. A few minutes pass. I start to show frustrations and I go and sit at the back of the bus.
The rest of the ride seems rather calm. That is, until the kids come to the back of the bus and start screaming again. I am fed up at this point. I don't even get to my proper stop. I just get off. As I get off, I realize that Starbucks is about two miles away and I'm supposed to be there at 9am. It's 8:45am. There's no way I can make it by 9. So I go to call Rob (one of the guys I'm meeting) and I don't have his number.
It's about 9:04am and I get there and the guys aren't around yet, but guess who is. Go on guess. It's that darn family. The kids are still being brats. When Roba and his friend Dan arrive I ask if we can go outside.
After the meeting is over, we go to the thrift store to look for some stuff for an upcoming event. A few minutes after we go inside, I run into that family again, and yes the kids are still screaming.
A few hours later, I decide that I need a trash can, so I go to Walmart. Guess who just happens to be at Walmart? That family again. This time their kids are quiet. I am finally at peace.
After I get my shopping done, I get on the bus. The family is leaving at the same time as I am. The kids are complete angels. That is until we get on the bus. The kids just start to go nuts. This is where a different Chris Luna comes out. I don't know what got into me.
These kids are yelling and going crazy and I have had it. I yell out, "knock it off"! The dad looks at me and asks me if I'm okay. I tell him no and I get off at the next stop. I walk for about four miles until I get home. Then I kind of think about it for a while and I just give myself a pat on the back.
