I had to arrange for a ride today so that I could do the double header that I am scheduled for. Not having a vehicle is a major inconvenience. I have had a car since I was 24 – very convenient. I am sure that I could get to the park that I am going to via bus, in fact I know that I could, but, there is a fair amount of equipment that one needs to bring when you are umpiring.
Luckily, my partner said that he would pick me up – my thanks.
I am scheduled to umpire at the same park this coming Friday and then again on Sunday. I do hope that I have my Jeep for Friday. If not, I guess I will be emailing my partner for that evening and seeing if he can pick me up. I will need to make some sort of decision by Tuesday or Wednesday I would guess – if I need to drop the game, I need to give the scheduler some time to find a replacement. I don’t think that will be too hard right now as there aren’t too many games anyway so someone should take it without any problems.
I am doing the bases on Friday so I could take the bus there as well – not sure on timing. It isn’t too far really, but I don’t know the bus routes to that part of the city – at all. Guess we will see.
So, in short (and nothing I ever speak about is “in short”), I want my Jeep back. Thank you. 🙂
