It's the first day back for the university today. Which means I start working the reference desk daily again and also means that traffic is completely eff'd up. Regular school started last week and the traffic was heavier than the summer but manageable (except for the school buses) but now that the uni is back too, it's all gone to hell. I know this and planned to leave early today but, of course, I failed to do that, leaving only 5 minutes early as opposed to the 10 or 15 minutes I had planned on. And I went the wrong way, catching most of the traffic on the street Bub's daycare is on. And there was a cop directing traffic for some reason this year on a road right before Bub's daycare so that was backing everything up. I'm hoping that doesn't continue. And then the kids on campus seem to believe that simple traffic laws do not apply to them. Like don't cross in the crosswalk on red. I have very little time to turn on a green arrow and they ruin it by walking across the street and getting in my way. And they just cross without looking. I can't understand it. It was just a frustrating morning. Hopefully we can get up and out earlier tomorrow.
