Gill and Buses

No reply from Gill. Great(!) I'd suggested we meet on Tuesday, figuring that would give her time to check her emails and reply. But obviously I was wrong. So now I don't know what to do. What if she replies later? I could come in really, really early tomorrow to check, or maybe this evening. I was wondering whether I should go to chorus or not. At the moment I really don't feel like it though.

And the buses are driving me crazy. I just looked it up and I'm going to have to catch the bus 70 minutes before my lectures/seminars. How fun for me.

Also, bus drivers. A couple of days ago I got on the bus at the station in town and the driver said he wasn't going to the uni. I said fine, I'm going to Herne Bay and he said "not with that you're not" so I had to tell him that my pass did cover that area and he grumbled that they must have changed since he last saw them (actually, they were exactly the same last year.) And then he said he's going the long way to Herne Bay. That pissed me off, even after establishing that I am on the right bus he's still trying to get me to leave.

Do they take lessons in being rude? Is it part of their training? I've noticed that whenever they take my bus pass to check it they don't do it in a polite way, instead they snatch it, glare at it, glare at me, glare at it again then thrust it back to me as though disappointed they couldn't find anything wrong with it.

Update

Can I bang my head against a wall?

Well, I thought that since I haven't heard from Gill I should get the registering out of the way so I went to the Registry, which was packed, and waited for my turn. The wait was not fun and I was about this close to a panic attack, I could feel my heart beating rapidly and honestly felt like I might throw up as soon as I opened my mouth to talk to the lady. Fortunately I didn't. I said I was returning from an intermission and she asked for my card. I was actually still saying that I was told I had to register in person but I don't think she heard. Anyway she tapped her keys and then said that the card is still valid and I should come back for a form in a few weeks when the the queues will be less to get a new one.

Er, ok, but I wasn't there about my card, I was there to register.

So now I'm just going to do it online. I'm kinda worried because the letter did say I had to register in person but I suppose there's nothing else I can do. I went, told her my situation and if she didn't do it then I guess that's fine.

Or it would be except the student pages don't seem to be doing anything.

Seriously, head meet wall.
