I don’t miss the bus. I may be late sometimes, but I do NOT miss the bus. What does that mean? Well sometimes a hyperactive bus driver blows right past my stop thinking that his 2/3 full bus can’t take on a handful more.
I always sprint to the next bus stop and when boarding, remind the bus driver he missed the last stop. While this doesn’t go over so well, especially when I make a scene, bus drivers still do it. Unless I see folks sticking out their hand to breathe, the bus ain’t full, its just Americans refusing to get close.
Next time, do us all a favor, move past the back door!!
