Day Three of the Fair — first day for YA and I together. As we were sitting on the bus at the Park n Ride, YA says “I left my phone in the car”. The bus driver had already announced that as soon as the bus was full, he was taking off even it was a little early. When I asked YA if she wanted to go retrieve her phone, the driver made another announcement; YA didn’t want to wait for the next bus so said she didn’t need her phone.
I almost laughed out loud. I shoved her off the bus and we sprinted back to the car, grabbed her phone and made it back to the bus before it left, although we had to stand at that point. I couldn’t think of anything worse than spending 8 hours with a young person who didn’t have their phone, even if it meant waiting for the next bus. A couple of hours later, while she was taking pictures of bunnies, she thanked me for going back for the phone.
Any essential items you need to take if you’re spending a day out and about?
