Student misses graduation in traffic
Northwood senior Rangi Thimor was recently found still waiting in Northwood traffic after missing his graduation.
Security camera footage indicates that Thimor’s Lexus had turned into the school as a freshman ready for his first day of school, and has waited there ever since. He was found after a passerby stopped him for sleeping and driving.
“He looked like every other Northwood student trying to get to school on time, albeit with an incredibly long beard and questionably looking clothing. But I just assumed those were just his style choice; if people can have bright blue hair, how different is a foot-long beard?. Besides, it’s not like anyone was moving anyway,” said Northwood sophomore Caitlyn Chen, who had been waiting behind Thimor at the time. “I mean, I’ve been waiting for a couple of days myself.”
Paramedics arrived at the scene four hours after the call due to residual Northwood traffic on Portola and quickly whisked him away. Thimor is currently recovering from being inside a car for four years, though he has reported that he feels fine. His car, however, is completely drained of battery and is unsalvageable after running for four years.
“It’s already hard enough to deal with all the stress at Northwood because of the difficult classes and the pressure to do well. But with this incident, I’m too scared to drive to school in the morning. I just got my license, and I was about to get my parking permit, so I would be able to drive myself,” exclaimed Northwood junior Cee Truss. “Rangi Thimor is a lesson for all Northwood students–beware of the traffic because it’s a dog-eat-dog road, and you too might just get eaten by the Northwood traffic.”
Once he recover, Thimor will be re-enrolling in Northwood High School as a freshman to learn all of the information that he had missed while waiting in traffic.
“The worst part is that this isn’t even the first time this has happened to me! Every time, I try to go to Northwood, I end up missing everything, and I have to start all over. All the people I know have started to call me ‘the forever freshman,’ and every time I’m in The Howler, I’m always stated as a freshman! It’s so frustrating,” freshman Thimor said. “I’m just going to start walking from now on. It takes me an hour to walk, but it’s still faster than the traffic.”
