I’m on the bus and my god, some people. This one guy is on the phone with someone and he just keeps swearing. Like bud, relax. Save that profanity for somewhere else please. I’m a loud person myself but I’m not cussing everywhere like I own the place, that’s rude.
I’m frustrated. Even when more people get on the bus, he hasn’t stopped. Blerg… I even have made eye contact with him on multiple occasions like dude, relax.
I’m such an embarrassment! I stood up to get ready to get off the bus and spun around crashing into some people. I SUCK! Ugh *starts crying*
Not so Bus but still Adventure! I was at Starbucks with a friend, and it’s about 7:30pm right? I’m sitting, we’re chatting, just typical coffee shop etiquette, when this guy, about late forties, starts getting loud with the lady behind the counter. She’s trying to apologize and calm this nutcase out, but he’s just getting louder. I’ve worked customer service for almost ten years now, and hearing the phrase “I’m a customer, I’m always right” just triggers my bitch mode. So I told my friend, “one second, I’ve got to go get in line” and marched over to the counter behind asshole customer guy. I’m standing behind this guy for like, ten minutes
more like two and I decided I was going to cut this guy off. I asked “how late are you open till?” Cause now it’s about 8pm. Now that I’ve said something, this guy decides he’s going to in my face calling me rude for cutting him off, which to be fair I did do. My reply “she’s doing her job, calm down man”. After being all huffy and puffy, dickhead left all pouty. No matter how many years I work with the public, I will never understand customers.
Another asshole at Starbucks! Guy was trying to buy a box of loose leaf tea, and there’s only one till open which has a customer already. Guy gets impatient and throws a $10 bill down and tries to leave. A staff member asked him to wait a moment because they have to scan the product and that it would only take a second. That makes sense! Just wait a second, and then their inventory isn’t messed and you can get your change, right? Apparently not. This guy is so upset, he tosses the box at the person behind the counter, and then gets confused on why he’s now being asked to leave. Like buddy, you literally THREW PRODUCT and expect to not be kicked out?
Bussing is insane. People are so bizarre! The bus people were normal this time around, in fact my bus had six total passengers for the whole ride, but living where I do, weather is garbage. With the weather being terrible, people are driving like complete idiots. Constant switching between lanes without using turning signals, accidents on every block, it’s like people see snow and legitimately forget how to drive! I’m baffled!
It Ain’t Much
But I’m not planning on riding the bus anymore this year, just because I don’t have much reason to go into town. I asked for bus tickets for Christmas, so hopefully I get to ride it a lot more come the new year. I enjoy travelling and seeing the road, and with my car still broken, bussing is all I have. Bussing and retail, man do they change your view on the world. Humans are such interesting creatures! Oh, and before I forget, Blessed Yule! Thank you for coming along on all my adventures! And safe travels!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading this today!
