Passed me by

This morning in the pouring rain I flagged down the limited bus and the driver slowed down but kept going. I was mad. The next bus was right behind so it wasn't long of a wait. The driver said, "oh that may be a new driver. There is no limited sign. I might have done the same thing." I asked, " are you new?" She replied, "I've been driving for ten years." I didn't respond because I felt it was a stupid answer. Shortly after she said, "we're human you know". I replied, " I didn't intimate that you weren't". I'm expected to know my job and I've made mistakes. If she was in doubt she still could have picked me up what's the harm in that.

Naked at the bus stop

This morning as the bus was heading downtown I saw a man at a bus stop in the city totally naked. It was at Harper. He had a smile on his face and another guy behind him was taking a photo. I was talking with a rider and we both we facing the window as we passed the naked man. All I could do was laugh because it was so random.

Bus rear ended

The bus stopped at seven mile this evening and the vehicle behind us did not. We were picking up people and the collision happened. The driver had to be distracted to run into a big bus. Thankfully no one was hurt. Be alert and careful people.

Yelling Man

I was walking to my bus stop to go home and I heard a man yelling "ting" and punching the air like you may do in a marshal arts class. It could have been "king" too. He would take short breaks but continued. I was about twenty feet away and a woman said in almost a whisper, " so help me if he comes over here I'll knock him out." It made me chuckle. I was thinking I had seen and heard this type waiting for the bus before.

Once Again I Have To Stumble Upon It

This morning at my usual bus stop I noticed that someone pooped in the shelter. This happened a while ago and I thought it was a one time occurrence. Since that time I won't wait in the shelter accept near the entrance and I definitely will not be sitting on the bench. The shelter is missing two plastic wall panes so it's in need of some attention. I hope other people know to be careful or they will end up with poop on their shoes.

Missed my bus

I missed my bus but I got to visit with a former coworker. She was telling me about a trip to Italy. The pictures on her phone were nice. It was a nice way to wait for the next bus.

Didn't Believe Me

A woman who I've occasionally seen at the bus stop in the morning was walking up to the stop when I told her the 560 went by a minute or two earlier. She ignored me. When the bus I take came up she asked the driver if she stopped at six mile road. She said no because she was the limited route with no stops in the city until downtown. The woman who was on her phone the whole time and blocking my way on it said, " you are supposed to".  The driver closed the door on her and drove away. If she would have listened to me she would have known she missed her bus.
