The Bus Beckoner

My gift is to beckon buses.

I go to the Park-n-Ride to get to school, and for the past few days, I've noticed that whenever I take out my ID (which is my bus pass), the bus shows up. I'll be standing in line waiting for the bus to come, and I just decide to pull out my ID that way I'm prepared when the bus comes, and I look up, and it's coming down the street!

Now, I know this sounds ridiculous, because I'm probably just patient enough to wait the almost 10-15 minutes for a bus, and I know this, so I wanted to disprove this strange coincidence to myself today. As I parked at PnR, I got out my ID then, before I could even see the people waiting in line. Then I make the short walk down to the actual bus stop, and as soon as all the people are in view, I find them not there, and instead the bus is pulling away! The 120-X that I'm supposed to take to school!

At this point, I started freaking out a little in part because I just missed my bus, but also because as I tried to disprove a theory, it turned out being true anyway. I am all-powerful. When it comes to buses.

Don't be confused, though. It's not necessary that I pull out my ID for the bus to come, it can come on it's own anyway, but if I pull it out before it gets there, then it will come.

So I have a theory. On my ID, it has my name, it says STUDENT, and it has my ID number, like all previous IDs have. But the IDs this year have an addition, which is some random way long number underneath the ID number. I think that these number are some kind of secret codes that give the card owners special abilities. Mine obviously beckons buses, which is why I am The Bus Beckoner. I feel like there are probably a few other chosen individuals with this ability, but we are few.

It makes me wonder what everyone else can do... This calls for further inspection...

Oh. And P.S. I didn't miss my bus. I got at the PnR a little early and watched as the bus before the once I catch drove away. I was still on time to class, which is good because it's my favorite class this semester: Gen Chem haha.
