Phone conversation from last Friday:
“Hello, is this IT Boy’s Mom?”
“Yes, this is she.”
“Hi, this is XYZ Bus Company. We’re calling to confirm Boy’s transportation to ABC Preschool.”
“We didn’t get the paperwork from his coordinator in time, so we’re not going to be able to start him until September 8.”
“That’s fine.” (Note, that is actually fine. It’s 2 weeks earlier than the coordinator thought he would start.)
“Good, good, so we have him on the PM schedule…”
“Well, his paperwork says PM, so he’s been put on a PM route. Hold on for a second…”
<music on hold for 5 minutes>
“OK, it seems that the paperwork does say AM, so…”
“Does that mean he’ll still get bus service starting the 8th?”
“Well, he’s on the PM schedule, so we’re going to have to change that.”
This is not making me feel all warm and fuzzy about him taking the bus. Ah, the adventure begins!
