Trip to Summit Direct

I didn’t have to work today so I spent the day running around here and running around there. My hard drive was slowly dying because it would automatically power down occasionally. And the S.M.A.R.T wasn’t detecting any errors in the drive, but I know eventually, it’ll go. So since I’m behind in the hard drive race, i figured I might as well upgrade now.

I took a trip over to Summit Direct by Centre Mall via the Barton bus. I hate the Barton bus. It’s the crappiest bus of them all. First of all, as soon as the bus started moving, there was trouble. A car that was stopped at the light didn’t move. The bus driver was honking like crazy! He must have honked like 20 times before that car even budged. Then we get to some stop and some weird people get on. You see the strangest and weirdest people of Hamilton on the Barton bus. There was this one kid who couldn’t keep still. He looked like he was in his late 20’s or something. He keeps swaying forward and backwards and sometimes he screams for no particular reason. His mom tried to keep him quiet but it didn’t work.

Then there was this other snobby little girl that wouldn’t shut up. And her mom wasn’t much of a help either, she was trying to annoy the kid or something. It’s a shame I didn’t have any music to listen to, so I can drown out my surroundings. Listening to music on the Barton bus is very helpful.

Then I finally arrive at Summit Direct and surprisingly I was greeted by the girl at the counter. She was kind of hot too, so obviously my good looks caught her attention. Aside from that, I looked around and found what I was looking for. The workers there were sort of helpful, almost I usually pretend like I know nothing about computers, just to hear what they have to say. But anyways, I got what I wanted and left. Luckily, I caught the next bus that was heading downtown within a 1 of leaving the store.

From where I was standing, it looked like the bus was packed! But when I got on, a couple people got off and sure enough, there was plenty of space at the back. But there were two people who didn’t want to sit down for some reason. I waited for the bus to stop and asked to get by. As soon as I sat down, the decided to sit down too. Weird, no?

Then I get to the next stop and see my friend running for the bus. I wasn’t sure if she was going make it because sometimes the bus driver doesn’t like to stop, even if you’re running like crazy to catch up. Luckily, she managed to get on. When she got on, she saw me but she sat up at the front. Once the bus stop, she came over to sit beside me. My good looks strikes again!

So anyways, Ester and I talked all the way from Centre Mall to downtown. We haven’t seen each other in a while so we had a lot of catching up to do. It was hard to believe that she was still in school. Every time I see her, we’re talking about school and that was a long time ago, so I figured she’d be done by now. But turns out, she keeps taking other stuff along with her program, so I guess she got side tracked. And of course, she’s always talking about badminton. It’s as if, it’s her dream to one day play badminton in the Olympics. I don’t know how good she is, but she’s always trying to get me to go play. I kind of suck and she’s been playing since high school, so I doubt I stand a chance.

Of course, eventually our conversation had to come to an end because she had to get off at her stop. And once again I ride the Barton bus alone. On the way downtown, a fight almost broke out because some punk kids were swearing in front of a little girl and some guy sort of mentioned it and they didn’t want to be told what to do. I can understand the guy’s concern. I mean come on, there’s a little girl right there. I don’t think there’s any need to be using foul language. Some people can be very disrespectful towards others. What is this world coming too?
