Used to be I thought it was a great idea to take the bus to work. Like I said, Used to be. Its kind of hard to take the bus to work when the bus is your work. Thats right, after all these years of doing this and that, now Im a bus driver (or I guess more accurately, Im a bus operator).
The good thing (or is it the bad thing) about being a bus driver is the microscopic look you get into so many strangers lives. The bulk of passengers on my bus generally show their pass, pay their fare, ask for a transfer or just parade by like they own the place. Once past me, they will often retire to the back of the bus and plop down in the rear seats like so many sacks of potatoes. I often wonder whether Im transporting people or freight. Thats not to say that being a bus driver is a boring task--the more colorful people keep you attentive.
