I stayed late after class tonight so I was unable to take the bus. I can never seem to get out of class early enough with some of the challenges I have been having with some of my C++ assignments. Just a few hours ago, I called my mom to come and pick me up from school. I was walking back from the college, towards Interstate 295 where my mom turns off. She was at the grocery store when I called. I figured that since she was going to be there for a little while, I decided to start walking. I walked for about a mile and a half, then my mom called me. She said that she was already at the college waiting for me. I told her that I wasn’t at the college, and then she started to get very irritated. She shouted “WHERE ARE YOU!” Then I told her where I was and she still couldn’t find me. She was never able to find me, and so she decided to go back home and make me walk back. Luckily she called grandma up and let her come and get me instead. Needless to say, not only did I waste my mom’s time, but I also wasted grandma’s time because she had a longer drive to get to me since she lives a little bit farther away. Also, the gas mileage adds up, and that’s a waste of money right there. I offered to walk home, but my grandma called me saying that she didn’t mind picking me up so I said to her, “Well, okay.” My throat felt kind of dry and I knew I wasn’t going to make it home without any water to drink. Once I got off the phone with her, some stomach acid came up, and it was hard to even breath. I kept walking back and forth near the intersection that I told my grandma where I’d be at. I was okay, I had that happen to me before. I just need to make sure I drink some more water throughout the day, that’s all.
I was stupid for what I did because first off, I never called my mom telling her where I would be if I wasn’t going to be at the college. All I had to say was, “Oh, I’m kind of bored just standing here, so I’m going to go ahead and start walking”. Secondly, it’s even more stupid to walk out in the middle of the night with dark clothes on and no-one can even see you. As a result, I will know what to do next time if and when I need to rely on other people without wasting their own time. I managed to take a video of me just walking into this disaster.
