Childish transit staff

Posted on Fri, Feb 26, 2010 at 10:05 AM

What kind of idiotic people work for Metro Transit? You’d think one would be able to go work and about their business and not have to tolerate foolish behaviour from so-called professionals.

I was on the 52 last Tuesday afternoon when about 11 bus drivers got on heading to wherever. One particular driver from the moment they got on the bus gave me dirty looks and said things to his colleagues. Before the 16-minute bus ride ended he and two others indiscreetly made references to my attire implying that I was trying to dress like one of them and laughing amongst themselves. That same driver continued his asinine behaviour at the bridge terminal, staring at me with a sour look on his face.

Finally out of total impatience for his nonsense I said as he walked by “What?” He then stopped turned around and stepped up to me and stood right in front of me in a confrontational manner and said in a threatening tone “Don’t ever say another word to me.”

Well what do you expect? Now seriously, I’m not the type of person to bother anyone. But what kind of idiot sits there belittling someone he doesn’t know and continues it for 15 minutes and expects them to say nothing? You don’t know me dumbass I don’t care what you where told.

So when I ask “What’s wrong with you? Why do you keep staring at me like an idiot?” he replies, “Because you are an idiot." I started at my job six years ago and have had been issued the clothes I wear. I can’t help the fact that my work wear almost matches theirs—last time I checked, blue shirts and pants are not strictly reserved for Metro Transit. And even if I wasn’t issued a uniform, I can wear what ever I damn well please. That does not give you or anybody the right to harass or ridicule me. Nobody deserves that. I can’t help that stupid people chose to be bothered by me. I don’t do anything to you. —A Grown-Up
