Let me tell you a little something about Thunder Bay, Ontario. My home town.
First off. I am a highschool drop out. Not going to lie. I dropped out in grade ten, then went back and dropped out again. I had a rough life... and in order for me to take care of myself I had to work. Well... Some teachers here thought that I should quit my job starve and go to class and not leave 15 mins early to catch the bus so that I could make it to my job on time. Anyways, that's not the point here. I'm back in school. My school is all the way across town. When I was pregnant and living at home with my mom, I had the privilege of taking my mothers car to school. After I had my baby I moved out on my own with my boyfriend. We have a vehicle but he has it and he is out of town. Plus my class is only two hours long, I dont think it's wise for him to waste gas to drive across town to give us a ride. I would rather us save our gas and I just take the bus. (Plus I'm just not selfish who wants to give someone a ride across town and get them, I wouldn't) My daughter is now 3 months old. I have the carseat strollers. Where you just plop the car seat in the stroller. My stroller is pretty big. When I take the bus we push my cart in the spot for the wheelchairs (i know I know if someone with a wheelchair comes on I have to move.) The thing is though... when the bus is rolling... and people get on they stand in the aile because they dont want to sit next to someone they dont know. I FOR ONE am NOT jugdemental. When I took the bus to work I sat beside the handicap, the old, the smellys, the drunks, the natives, the whites, the blacks. ANYONE. Just so that I wasn't flying around on those bumpy ass bus rides. Well.. these people honestly piss me off. The bus on my way home told us (My class allows me to take my daughter with me. There are other girls there with their kids and they take the bus aswell) "If the bus gets crowed you girls have to fold up your stroller or get off" PFFT Do you see the strollers today?! If I fold it up it's still going to take up two seat, then how am I suppose to hold on to a stroller my baby and my bags?! Use your head people. Not to mention these drivers, are RUDE. They dont just inform us, or mention this small problem about our strollers. They say it to us in the most disrespectful way. I mean... come on here. We aren't dumb we all know you talk about us as if we are some young gals who got knocked up and thought they were mature enough to raise a baby. How we are just young girls riding around with their welfare kids and their welfare strollers! Negative, fuckers! We are young girls taking the bus so that we can get an education. So that we can better ourselves for our childrens futures. They are our next generation, the ones who will be running the world when I am dust! Not you... so take your snobby ass and get off the bus! I am venting about this because it disgusts me. The next time you're on a bus smile to a girl with a stroller and a baby... dont give them a dirty look or a pitty look, because we dont need it! I won't be riding the bus forever, nor will my daughter. I will be something great, for her... not for myself but for her! So sick of these old people too. WHAT?! you're 70+ give it up... walk your ass two or three more ailes to the back and sit down. you dont have to sit in the wheelchair spots. That was rude of me. They can't help it. I'm sorry old people... that you have THE MOST MASSIVE walkers ever!
I'm done here...
It just pissed me off because I know I am trying to work hard for my daughters life. I hate judgemental people and they're "I'm so better" than you attitude. We are all one. We are all the same. Just because of wealth doesnt make you any different. You feel the same as I, you bleed the same as I... so don't judge.
