My daughter started kindergarten Tuesday, so it's been a week of firsts for me. It's been good so far, but there is one thing I can't stand-- the traffic in the car rider line.

School gets out at 2:45 p.m. and if you want to pick up your child and be back home before sunset, you need to be in the car rider line at like 2 p.m. I just sat there like an idiot yesterday. I had nothing do to for an hour. I was so bored. SO BORED.

And the traffic? It's RIDICULOUS. It's as if everyone and her mom is in line at my elementary school. I am not exaggerating, y'all. This line stretches for an actual mile or more. I waited forever, and then there were jerks who kept trying to squeeze past me. YOU HAVE TO WAIT LIKE EVERYONE ELSE, BRO. I could feel my eye twitch when this dude in a busted SUV cut me off before the main turn into school.

Which will kill me first: a ragestroke from the traffic or boredom from the wait?

Maybe it's time to sign my kid up for the bus.
