I Love to Laugh


Oh, Those Bus Drivers.

Actually most of them are not too bad.

Here's the story. I have a seniors bus pass which is good only for the city I live in. In order to go the the next town over, I need a transfer and it should be punched on the little letters that say BT. I get on the bus, show my pass and say *I'd like a transfer to go to Burlington, please* and the driver will issue a transfer. S

Some will take the time to punch those little letters, but most don't even bother. The drivers of the Burlington Transit buses don't even check to see if it is punched. They don't care. The punch is to ensure that I don't give my transfer to some one so they can travel OUR buses without paying a fare.

Well, I work in Burlington, so I need to get a transfer. Not a problem....most of the time.

One morning, I got on the bus and asked for a transfer to go to Burlington, and the driver got so hostile. He glared at me and asked *Burlington? Really?* I said *Yes, really.* He issued a transfer and proceeded to punch it on those two little letters. Then he went on to attack that transfer with his hole punch. Ten more holes, he put in that transfer.

That was nearly four years ago, and I still get a case of the giggles whenever I think about that poor defenseless transfer being attacked like that.

I wonder who peed in his Wheaties that morning.



This was actually written just a year before i retired. I no longer work; in Burlington or anywhere else

when people let their stuff flop out into your life, you just never know whether you'll get a handful of gumdrops... or a bowl of wet wheaties :))... funny story 馃榿馃尫
Interesting story
serenitree... my dear friend... we all do:) I just recently learned that a thick skin doesn't mean we don't feel the pain... it just means we don't let it feed off us. Miss you. 馃崁馃尫馃崁
Thanks for reading, and commenting. I appreciate it.

Beth, I seem to get a lot of the wet wheaties. But I can live with it.
I miss our chat times.
