Good Bus Drivers/Bad Bus Drivers

Well I ride the bus everyday, so I guess it was bound to happen sooner or later. The vast majority of bus drivers are hard working people, and most are very nice considering the riff raff out there.

But... The other night I had "fun" trying to get the #1 bus - near Shoppers. I came out of school, and saw the 1... it was just sitting there (I figured it would take off right away, so I didn't rush to get it... at first) Five seconds passed and it was still sitting there, so I'm like I didn't miss it after all. I run up to the bus full steam ahead, and get there. I'm standing in front of the doors and the bus is not yet in motion. Then the driver ignores me and starts to drive off. I'm like waving my hands yelling, hey. No response, just keeps driving. So I bang...really hard... on the bus. Looking to illicit a response.Well I got one.

He pulls the bus over to the side of the road, and looks at me through the glass of the bus door. He doesn't open it, and precedes to say something to me about not banging on the door. Of course I can't hear him because he wont open the door. I tell him I cant hear him and ask if he can open the door. He continues to say something about not banging on his bus.

Well, if he wouldn't ignore a customer with a bus pass who is at the bus stop waiting to get on while the bus is waiting there, then maybe I wouldn't be banging on the bus trying to get him to stop.

(I swear this incident gave this bus driver a hard on or something, I think he was enjoying it)
