Nothing says stress like running for the bus first thing in the morning. :roll:

Got to send some meeting papers out, and am waiting on our accountant to email a couple of documents.

He has. Twice. It would seem his server has a blockage!

Sigh. Technology. :doh:

How about running early for the bus only to find it was running even earlier?

nothing quite like coming up on your bus stop ten-15 minutes early only to see the bus pulling away from the stop. and knowing the next one isn't for a half hour after that one was supposed to have gotten there (which will invariably be on time, if not a little late).

Why are mornings more stressful for the person trying to get the other person out of the door for their bus when the person getting the bus appears to be completely chilled about it all? Could it be that the first person will be the one who has to start the car and drive the 20 mile round trip if the bus is missed while the other person catches up on an extra few minutes ZZZZ?

Hubby's car got rear-ended AGAIN on the commute home yesterday. :( This is the second time this year. Thankfully, no one was hurt and the car is very fixable. It's still so stressful in the first few moments of that phone call, telling me he'll be late because someone hit him.

So glad no-one was hurt although getting it fixed and dealing with insurance companies is still a real pain.

So true. He's dreading calling the insurance company, and that's knowing that they'll take care of it.

And because of a claim they bump the insurance rate up next year, main thing is no one was hurt.

Surely the guy who hit hubby's car's insurance should pay for the damages?

Yes! Bouncy but they look at it as a risk factor, and with that being the 2nd in so many months..... even though not their fault.
