My January Journey II

I arrived in the early evening on an old, tin-canned dog to the ancient bus station in downtown St. Louis.

And, like a line of other people, I waited...and waited...and then got the news: Storms had closed the interstate after Kansas City. So...only those passengers with tickets to KC and no further could go on the next buses out in that direction.

I stood there with the ticket that had cost almost $200 in my hand and raised my voice.

I explained that I wanted to at least go to Kansas City. Also.

The Greyhound "staff" turned me down flat. And they refused to refund the rest of my unused ticket or help me in any way.

Sooo...I got mad. And I hitchhiked out of the city. Amazing but true.
