Asher’s Dream Job

Ever since Asher was 3 years old, he has wanted to be a city bus driver.

When he turned 5, all he wanted for his birthday

was a laminated map of our city to hang on his wall.

He knows every street all 28 buses go down.

He knows times, (in fact he learned how to tell time by reading bus schedules),

where every stop is,  where what bus should be when.

He has read the 51 page 2030 Master Plan Report

(and found several errors, which he kindly pointed out in a letter he wrote to the Rapid).

Last week, he met with and interviewed the Rapid’s Senior Planner.

Nick graciously answered all of Asher’s questions and talked about his job.  How he plans routes.  How he decides what bus should go down what street.  Everything Asher has been wanting to know about for years.

(So I’m told.  I waited in the lobby where a good non-interfering mother should be)

And Asher?  He came out of the interview with a new career path.
