WTF, Metro Transit? WTF?

Yesterday morning my daughter got on the #52 with several other kids on their way to Halifax West High School. After all the kids got on, the bus driver apparently decided the bus was too full. "You guys have to get off." He said to the last few kids.

Yesterday morning my daughter got on the #52 with several other kids on their way to Halifax West High School. After all the kids got on, the bus driver apparently decided the bus was too full. "You guys have to get off." He said to the last few kids. "But I already put my ticket in," said my kid. "What am I supposed to do now?" (I only give my kid two tickets per day. One to get to school and one to get home. Kids lose things.) So the bus driver tears off a transfer and shoves it at her, barking at the kids to hurry up and get off. Needless to say, the driver of the next bus wouldn't accept the transfer. The walk didn't kill her, but she was late for school and got in trouble.

My bitch is that kids get shit on like this all the time. I know some kids are brats, and some make trouble. But not all. Not even most. But bus drivers seem to hate teens on principal, and don't hesitate to do shit like this to them, that they would never dare do to adults. No wonder so many kids have such an attidude. They know they're going to get treated like this whether they do anything to deserve it or not.
