First day of working in the Seattle office. (Normally I work in Kirkland.) This won't be something I do often, but the new team I'm on has its tech lead in Seattle, and Megan's still on maternity leave, so this is a good time to do it.

Morning: miss the bus I'd intended to take from the Renton transit center to downtown Seattle. Get misdirected by Google Maps Transit as to the number of the bus I'm supposed to be looking for once I finally arrive in downtown Seattle, and unwittingly let it escape. Arrive something like 45 minutes later than I'd intended.

Evening: miss the first bus I try to take (either it showed up early or late enough to be useless) after running up some steep hills for several blocks. Go back where I started to catch a later bus, which is itself late enough that I miss the connection to the bus going to Renton TC. Fail to realize that there's another bus I can take from the stop I'm waiting at that will go to Renton TC, and wait yet another 20 extra minutes in consequence. I'll be getting there about 45 minutes later than I'd intended, and because so much of the wait was in the bus tunnel, I couldn't get any work done (no signal). Plus I missed an event at Corwin's school.

Gaaaaaahhh.

I generally prefer taking the bus to driving when I can, but this sucked.
