Well, I just discovered that I’ve been going a long way to go a short way all this time. Oops.
Apparently, the CM bus that stops outside my store is, in fact, faster than my usual method of walking to another route and taking that downtown to work each day. I thought (erroneously as it turns out) that I’d have to take 3 buses and that it didn’t run around the time I needed. So, instead, I’ve been taking a bus downtown to catch another bus that drops off 20-25 min from my work location. I would generally just walk the 23 min walk…this is where you discover I’m kinda dumb because, apparently, the CM bus drops outside my work location and I’d get there faster. Like 30 minutes faster. Yup… I’m a dummy.
I took it today and I gotta admit…not having to walk further than the end of my store parkinglot was pure delight! Just wait until I get to do it on Tues morning! I’m gonna faint from joy!
Hmm…this will, however, adversely affect my T.J. Maxx addiction..(🥴) as I won’t be getting off at that stop anymore. But, don’t worry… there’s always the weekend bus as the CM doesn’t run on the weekends.
Still, this is definitely an example of how my creature of habit thing is actually kinda bad. I need to try out new stuff. Oh! And guess what I saw as I rode that new bus route? A community pool!
Seriously, I need to explore the area around me a wee bit more.
