DO I NOT LOOK LIKE I HAVE THE BUS SCHEDULE MEMORIZED? PART TWO

It couldn't have been more than ten minutes after the events described in the last post; I was sitting at the Wilkinson Center bus stop, putting my bus schedule collection in numerical order. This is an important activity from time to time, as my bus schedule collection is extensive, and finding the right schedule on the fly can be a surprisingly involved activity for someone with an attention span as short as mine.

Anyway, so I'm putting my bus schedules in order, and the man next to me says "I've heard of people collecting comic books, but I've never seen anyone who collects bus schedules."

I was already mildly annoyed, and this didn't help. "Well, when you ride the bus as much as I do, you need the schedules."

He said: "Well, why don't you just memorize the schedules for the routes you use most?" and then I wanted to say:

What makes you think I don't?

Seriously, I gotta look more like a memorizer. Nobody believes me.
