ANNOYED ANNOYED need to rant:
I was on the bus to lab, and these cute middle-aged women got on the bus through the back door and were clearly not familiar w San Diego public transit, and there were a bunch of UCSD students who were helping them figure out which bus to take (cute). Then they were very cheerfully making conversation, and one of them was from Hawaii, and she was talking about how public transit in SD was so much better (which is funny to me, having lived in Boston, hehehe), bc in Hawaii there's only 1 bus and it goes all the way around the island and takes 5 hours. Then one of the students who was helping her earlier was like "yeah, I'm from st. louis", and in my head, I was like oh, that's exciting to come across another st. louisan at UCSD, bc usually all the undergrads are from CA. And then she's like "You don't take public transit there unless you want to get mugged." Which is SO SO false, and I should have said something, but I was only peripherally a part of the conversation, and I was still waking up, and I wasn't fast enough... so now I'm just grumbling about it to myself.
