My 14 year old dd has been staying very late @ school for rehearsals. The show opens tomorrow and they were at school last night till just after 8pm. I suspected ahead of time it would be that late so because her bus pass expires at 8:30 I told her to make sure she had Money on her to be able to come home. She tells me okay. Then at around 8:10 she calls me and tells me she's getting ready to leave school but doesn't have any money on her. She has to wait for the bus and has to be on that bus before 8:30. She almost didn't make it. as long as she's on the bus by 8:30 she'll have a transfer on her card for the subway that lasts 2 hours so she just had to be on the bus. she gets to the bus stop and she has to wait for the bus. thankfully the bus pulled up at around 8:20 so she got lucky. Had it been after 8:30 she would of had to wait for me (if the driver didn't let her go) until i got there which would take at least 45 minutes.
