Birth Control Please

Posted on Mon, Nov 7, 2011 at 11:04 AM

To the poor excuse of a mother who got the on #80 on Joseph Howe with three young kids. First, you took up the first 6 seats at the front of the bus, one for yourself, two for your groceries, and then 3 more for your kids, not that they stayed there long. As soon as the bus left the bus stop, your kids jumped up and began running up and down the aisle of the bus, screaming, yelling, going completely nuts. You must have felt the stares directed at you, so why didn't you do something to control your children? Instead you sit there texting on your phone. It was no surprise to the other passengers when the bus driver stopped the bus on the Bedford Highway and politely asked if you could ask your children to sit down. What did surprise them and myself was your response of "Sit down and do your job. Those are my kids. They're not hurting anyone." WTF. The driver just looked at you and you just glared at him and said "What? You deaf or something?" Thankfully the bus driver knew what to do and got on the phone to the transit depot. Meanwhile you go off on some wild rant about how you paid for service and demand he drive the bus to Sackville. He doesn't take orders from you. You have no problem dishing out directives at him, yet not a peep to your demon kids? When the transit supervisor finally showed up, you claimed the driver was harassing you. Total bullshit. I was more than happy to speak to the supervisor outside the bus, as were the three other people he asked to explain what happened. The outcome elicited clapping from several passengers when the supervisor ordered you and your children off the bus so we could continue on our way. Hope to never see you again. You wasted 30 minutes of our time. I suggest you attend some proper parenting classes. —Buzz Off Bitch
