Yeah, I do have a missing the bus story. I was 16 and had stayed with my cousin for the night. The last words I got as I left home was, "you be sure you catch the bus in the morning." My bus ride to school was 45 miles. So I wake up to the bus going by my grandmas house. I got up and got ready while wondering how I was going to tell my mother that I had missed it. My uncle told me he would get me to school on time even though I only had 40 minutes to go over a winding mountain road and across the valley another 10 miles to school. He had a "70's" Mustang that could move. We made the drive that takes 40 minutes in 25
! I even had 5 minutes to spare when I got into class. Mom only learned about that one many years later
. Talk about young and stupid.
