You're sitting. Outside. In the rain. Waiting for the bus. Which is overdue. So you're talking on the phone to pass the time. In the midst of the conversation, the bus pulls up, shows no inkling of stopping, and, by the time you've managed to try to flag it down is currently passing you and doesn't so much as blink. So you're sitting. Outside. In the rain. Waiting for the bus. Which is 30 minutes away, if it's on time.
