BITTERNESS

Last week:

Bustled out the door at 5:50 a.m. to catch the bus to the train to the bus to class.  Class begins at 7:30.  Bus is due at 7:32.  Bus arrives at 7:28.  I enter the classroom, panting, at 7:30 on the dot.  Teacher is not there.  Someone finds email saying, "Hi! I'm not going to be there!  Take this open-book quiz!"  Teacher shows up half-hour late.  I begin to question ever attending this class again.

This week:

Bustled out the door at 5:50 a.m. to catch the bus to the train to the bus to class.  Class begins at 7:30.  Bus is due at 7:32.  Bus arrives at 7:37.  I enter the classroom, panting, at 7:39.  Teacher is not only there, but has already handed out the quiz and is collecting it.

Bitterness.
