To a certain bus driver

Posted on Sun, Dec 15, 2013 at 9:20 PM

You harassed me for having my scarf up over my mouth when I got on the bus last night (not my nose, just my mouth). You claimed it was a 'safety risk' - I had literally just stepped on the bus from where I had been waiting in the -22C temperature. Really? Do I look like I'm getting on the bus to shoot up the place, or beat someone down? It's fucking cold out, lady. I was showing you my bus pass which is conveniently located next to my picture ID in my wallet. I'm a 'safety risk' with my scarf over my mouth, yet you let people with jumbo strollers on to block up the aisles of crowded buses without batting an eyelash for people's 'safety'. Okay, then. —cold and pissed
