So today has been the strangest day ever!
If you don’t already know I’m in California for a week of business. Today happened to be one of our off days so we had some down time. Danessia (my intern) & I decided to go exploring to get ice cream. It was not just any kind of exploring. We didn’t want a basic uber or lyft ride. We wanted to sight see and be cheap all at the same time.
With that being said we decided to catch the train, we heard it was $1.25 per stop and we only had 3 stops! Oh we were on it. After walking for about 15 minutes just to get to the train station we came across a bunch of weirdos, then a guy told us we were going the wrong way and to take another train so we did that and it seemed like our destination was getting further and further away.
We decide to head back another direction and then we almost got robbed and later found out the guy told us correctly so we had to go back the same way we came. Which was a whole 48 minutes out. By the time we finally got to the right connecting bus it was out of service and had a delay ! Talk about pissed! We started this journey at 4:30 p.m. and did not make it to our destination until 10:30 p.m. we were over it!
Finally we checked lyft prices again and we had a $5 credit so our ride the rest of the way was free hallelujah! Our prayers have been answered! We go get our ice dream and headed back to our hotel. We then hopped in another lyft because we refused to go through all that again with the train.
Once we finally get in our lyft we did the car-pool option. Our driver picked up two other people and we road around with him for 30 minutes while he dropped other people off. When it was finally our turn he turned around saying “I don’t have you girls in my system”. How in the world was that even possible! He’s the one that picked us up! So anyways he dropped us off at a random dark street corner and told us we had to find another ride because he had to go pick up someone else!
We had to wait in the dark on a random street corner and by the time we finally got back to our hotel is was passed midnight! All that for one ice cream sandwich. I’m so done! Today was a big blur big big blur.
