Dear Students: When you are on a crowded bus, look up from your phones, and when you see an older commuter on the bus standing, get up and offer them the seat! It is called being polite. It won't hurt you, and it might also make you feel good as the older person sits and you, with better balance, ride the next few stops. Also, a bit about bus-stop etiquette: the person who is at the stop first gets on first. If you get there after six people have already been standing around waiting for the bus, you are the seventh to get on, not the first because you moved the fastest or barged ahead. Again, it is called being polite! Try it, you might like it. —Talkin' Transit
Whenever I'm trying to diagnose myself online for some symptom or another, you will always read the same comments from blowhards on the web MD forums, always saying, "you should call your doctor and make an appointment." No shit, Sherlock. Shut the fuck up! State the obvious much? I don't have time to make an appointment and run to the doctor for every little pang or stitch my aging body experiences. Not to mention, my doctor is so overbooked, I have to wait on a wait list each time, by which time the symptom will likely be gone. I am asking the internet and trying to figure it out for myself what it could be and I would appreciate it if these after-school special snowflakes would quit wasting my time with their cliched advice. You're a fucking waste of space! FUCK OFF. —Probably PMS
I was shocked and disgusted to hear about the vandalizing of 29-ish HRM bus shelters a couple of weeks back, with tons of broken glass to clean up and replace. But isn't it time HRM started making bus shelters out of UNBREAKABLE material? What about the plexiglass-type stuff they use in hockey arenas? Also known as common sense. —Long-time transit rider
