You Think Sending A Text Makes This OK?

Let me get this straight, my daughter, the daughter who is a Freshman in high school, thinks that she can send me a text message at 9:00 am saying that she's going somewhere with a friend after school?  Oh, and that she's fine because she took her wallet so she'll take the bus home?

This is so-o-o-o far removed from what's normal, I have to laugh.

Our newly 15 year old daughter never, or hardly ever, wants to take the bus.  I drive both of my girls to/from school everyday.  Katie (the daughter in question) is shy and finds it difficult to be in situations that hold groups of people;  buses, waiting rooms, gatherings - even her own birthday party with family is too much and she needs to take little breaks in her room.  So this child that has been so anxious about taking the bus (public transportation) to school for years now thinks I'm going to accept a text saying "Going somewhere after school, I'll take the bus home"???

We live in a busy town so I understand wanting to go do things with friends, but this is so-o-o-o-o unusual.  Where do they want to go? Who all is going?  How long do you want to be out?  What the heck?!?

I've replied to her message but she hasn't responded.  I do believe I'll be waiting at the school's front door at the end of the day... and we'll have a little chat.
