So, today - I experienced a bus first for me. I was hit on. LOL.
For the last two days it has been rainy and the bus has been filled to the brim with all sorts of new people - not just the regulars. Not sure it is because of the rain or the gas prices - but the bus has been jam packed.
Anyway, when I got on the bus I had to stand near the front and this new guy was going and on about how he has never seen the bus this full ever in Indy. Then he asked who cut my hair - that was random. At first I could have swore he was insulting me - I mean I HAD been standing out in the rain for the last 30 minutes sharing my umbrella with two others waiting for the bus and getting quite damp in the process and as a result my hair went flat. I even asked him why and he just looked at me - didn't say it looked nice or what. So I was like huh- and kept trying to look in the bus mirrors to see if my hair really did look that bad that a casual bystander had to call it out.
Then I noticed how he got all fidgety and then switched seats to sit next me - ah ha...so I did the good old ring flash - you know, hold the umbrella so your wedding ringing is flashing - well APPARENTLY he did not take note of this and he tried to give me a crumpled piece of cardboard with his name and number wrote on it.
And of course I had to call him out in front of everyone and be all like - "Is this your number?! I am married!" He tried to backtrack and insist he was not giving me his number - but that lie fell apart and he tried another story about how he had that number ready for a girl on another bus but that he found out she was too young for him. Whatever. LOL.
What is the worst part is that this whole sad scenario was played out between about 5 people who were all sitting super close together - remember, the bus was full. LOL. So EVERYONE heard me call him out and everyone heard him try to lie - it was hilarious.
So, of course, I now feel terrible for having embarrassed him so I tried to engage him in some random conversation - talked about his job, etc. But when that bus came to our stop he was off faster than you could blink an eye. Poor guy. :) One of the men sitting across from us who had overheard the conversation piped up saying, "Hey man, you get an "A" for effort." Hehe! And a woman sitting next me leaned over and whispered, "He IS cute." LOL. A fun time was had by all - well, except for him maybe. :)
But it improved my day - things had been pretty crummy - having to stand out in the chilly rain forever and then having to stand on the bus because there was nowhere to sit and before that I had a fairly crappy day at work - so it was nice to have something different happen on the bus to talk about - AND it was flattering and quite humorous. :) So, thanks - random guy from the bus - for making me smile and blush a little!
