Mainly Mattias Posted May 9, 2015 Share Posted May 9, 2015 I was taking a workshop in burnaby last week so had to take transit for the first time in... awhile. Maybe it was just the crowd on this stretch of street, but do I ever feel sorry for transit drivers for what they have to deal with. On my bus, there were 5+ people (I seriously lost count) asking not to pay for their ride. The 1st one came onto the bus and pleaded with the driver, saying, "It's just a couple of stops. Please." He let her on with a few words of a disapproving tone. The second was a man in his mid twenties who came on with an attitude, asking for a free ride. The bus driver refused him and the man proceeded to make a spectacle of himself. He said, "Here's 2 bucks. See? I'm paying." He threw the toonie onto the dash and walked a couple of steps down the bus and the driver again refused him a ride and said that it wasn't even in the coin collector. After depositing the toonie in the collector and calling him a fat bald ahole, he walked down the length of the bus. I told him he was being disrepectful and he gave me the finger. The driver stood up and did not drive the bus. The man then pleaded and apologized and said he wouldn't be causing a fuss any longer and still the bus driver refused to move the bus. Eventually the driver gave him a ticket and told him to take another bus and he left still calling out profanities. Geez. He didn't even have the excuse of youth for his bad behaviour.
