I usually try to post attractive photos in this blog but today I am taking an exception. Let’s just say that these pics remind me that life is beautiful…and precious.
This is the bus stop my kids use to catch the bus to school on most weekday mornings…luckily for us this happened on a Saturday morning and luckily no one was there at the time…
The driver who plowed right into the bus shelter seemed remarkably unphased, laughing and joking to someone on her phone. I’m glad no one was hurt. I guess they don’t make cars like they used to or bus shelters either.

I have awards for you http://shareandconnect.wordpress.com/2012/12/20/blog-of-2012-the-year/ if you have time to play…
Thanks so much Amy! 🙂
That is lawlessness at its peak.As a matter of fact,her licence should be revolted.Thank goodness no innocent soul was there at that time.
I totally agree Udoji.
laughing and joking to someone on the phone… Thank goodness no one was around.
I know Amy….normally I would have not felt ok with snapping pictures of someone’s accident but after that insenstivity, I suppose I didn’t mind showing mine…I was a bit angry at her later.
What a reminder that we live in more daily danger from outright stupidity than from outright evil. I applaud you for not slapping her when you saw her laughing about it. And I am glad to hear that no innocent user of the bus stop was hurt.
Janet, I was too stunned to do anything but watch and take pictures. I must admit I am a little angry now.
I can only imagine how unbelievable the whole scene was. No wonder you were stunned. Which is probably good – it would be a real pain to raise bail bond money so near to Christmas if you had slapped her!
Oh Janet…that’s funny…I could see myself in jail now…tin cup in hand…screaming– “let me out you dirty screws!!”
Luckily that the bus stop was empty
– hand-held phone and driving at the same time don’t work together.
Hi Drake. I’m so glad. Anyone in that shelter and especially the bench in front of it probably wouldn’t be here anymore….what a mess. I find myself angry at her foolishness!
Thank goodness it was empty at the time… How on earth can someone just drive into a bus shelter?!
Hi Cathy: I don’t know. I thought she was a drunken leftover from Friday night but she was sober, the cop was there and didn’t take her away….it floored me. At first I was stunned but after a while I became angry. Circumstances in the world brought the gratefulness back home to me.
OMG !!! She was laughing about it ?? What is wrong with her. She is just lucky no-one was there to be hurt. Thanks for the pingback !!!!
Hi Jo: At first I thought she must be drunk but no, just stupid.
Wow! Close calls like that are kind of creepy. But how wonderful that the kids weren’t there when it happened. She probably crashed because she was too busy on her phone.
Hi Gunta: I woyldn’t be surprised. At first I was concerned for her and once I found out she was OK and no one was hurt and after I realised my kids could have been there on a different day…I started to think and became angry at her foolishness. I hope Tri-met (the bus agency) re-builds the shelter, only a bench so far…no one has money for that sort of thing at this time.
