So as you can tell my traveling has picked up to a crazy level! I went about 8 years in between airplane trips until April when I have been traveling monthly ever since. So needless to say I had never used a park and ride lot. You know the ones, park, pay a fortune to leave your car and come back when your trip is over. Last time I traveled (pre mini tahoes) you just parked at the airport and walked on in!
So I decide at 4:30am which lot to use and I pull in. I notice the bus sitting up front waiting for the people to get in. I think ohh I can do this! I park my monogrammed tahoe, grab my luggage and start the journey to the bus. As I am walking down my aisle another bus starts coming down the aisle and she is honking at me. I am annoyed but move out of the way thinking that is why she is honking. So I weave through a couple aisles of cars and there she is again honking at me! At this point I am totally annoyed. How rude to honk at someone for walking down the aisles with her big ol suitcase.
SO I finally make it to the bus up front, the driver opens the door and as I am about to board says" I'm out of service, didn't you hear that other bus honking at you? She was trying to pick you up!" I am mortified. I know realize this poor driver has been following me trying to get my attention! SO I stand and wait for her to come back to get me and when she opens the door she says (With a bus full of business men laughing) "Let me guess, you have never done this before!"
Turns out (which I have done everytime since) your supposed to park, grab your luggage and wait by your car until they come around to get you!
See you learn something every day!
