Bitchy Bus Drivers

Posted on Mon, Oct 26, 2009 at 1:01 PM

There is a bus stop on the 51 route going towards the bridge that is a 2 minute walk from my house. I have the GoTime # saved in my phone, so I can call and make sure I am on time for the bus. The other day I called, it said 7 minutes until the bus comes. I left my house, and within 1 minute the bus was driving by. I started running, and made it to the bus within 10 seconds. When I got on the bus I said thank you to the bus driver, who then told me, in a very haughty and VERY bitchy tone, that I should get myself a bus schedule. I told her that not only do i have a bus schedule in my bag, I also called GoTime and was told I had 7 minutes. She then argued with me about what time she leaves the last stop, and said next time she wouldn't wait for me if I wasn't at the stop.

Most of the bus drivers I encounter do not have this type of attitude, and are very pleasant to deal with, so this comment is not directed at you. But to the driver of bus route 51 going towards the bridge in the afternoons (And all other bus drivers with similar mindsets): Stop acting like you are doing me a favour by allowing me on your bus. I am a paying customer, and if it were not for people like me riding the bus you would not have a job where you can sit on your ass all day and earn a ridiculous amount of money to do it.

---Frustrated with bus drivers who act like they are doing favours for paying customers.
