Museum worker in Dartmouth.
I agree with Kathleen that "do it on the bus" scares me. I'm a woman who lives in Dartmouth and takes transit, I am already at risk of violence and assault as I get from point A to point B in our community, and have been the object of attention for bus masturbators in past. I do not want to "do it" on the bus and I don't want anybody to think that I want to!
I can't imagine a scenario in which I can ever afford kids.
I am afraid of "do it on the bus". Whoever thought that gem up has obviously never been the subject of an unwanted masturbator on the bus's attentions and affections before! :(
Yesterday I was waiting for the 60, I was 5 minutes early. Scheduled time arrives and nothing. Keep waiting because I'm at Shearwater and WTF else am I gonna do, it's the only bus. 25 minutes later what turns up but 2 number 60's. ANNOYING. It's the only bus that goes out to the passage. I can't believe there's anything too wild and crazy out there traffic-wise. Why can't the bus be on time? :( It's scary to wait around in the dark at Shearwater and not have a bus turn up!
" If you see 1 or 2 cars approaching and a clear road behind them ... wave us on through! It sucks slamming on the brakes so you can cross 5 seconds sooner."
FUCK YOU OB! You're going to get to your destination 800 times faster than I'm getting to mine. If you can safely stop so I may use the crosswalk, then that's what I expect you to do because it's the DAMN LAW. If I were wishy-washy and waved motorists through because there's only 1 or 2 cars, I'd never fucking get anywhere on time.
I don't understand why the municipality won't get buses that accommodate strollers. When I lived abroad, buses were configured to take them without obstructing the aisles (which is the thing that drives me crazy about baby buggies, though I never say anything because some day that probably will be me).
Agree with the comments. During the transit strike, my ride to work called me 5 minutes before work started to tell me she couldn't get her car to start. I paid 25 bucks to cab to fucking Shearwater. When I finally got there (WAY LATE) she was literally lol'ing that it started and she was just a little late for work! I didn't have the 25 dollars for that cab that day, and couldn't afford what ended up being my "morning off" while I waited for a cab, I could have walked if I had known 2 hours before work started that I didn't have a ride. Your friend was paying you 70 bucks to go to and from work 5 days a week? You can get a bus pass for that and have unlimited regular transit access for a whole month. I'm sorry but I think you're a jerk.

Pretty good. I wish there were a larger dining area (we went on a weekend at suppertime and didn't know if she should order for 'here' or 'to go' and the girl at the counter wasn't very helpful in that regard, to be honest). We each had a pulled pork sandwich. It reminded me of the Hog Roast in York, UK but if it were in North America instead of the UK. I'd like to go back and try the sweet potato chips and a few other menu items.
