Bus etiquette

So we're approaching the stop before mine, and the lady sitting next to me wants to get up. Now, after 7 o'clock the drivers of the 71, 72, and 73 routes pretty much drive like madmen if traffic allows. I don't move. She gives me a look, so I tell her wait til the bus comes to a stop, cause I'll fall over if I get up now. Bus comes to a stop at the stop light before her stop. So I get up and grab hold of the strap-hanger to steady myself. She gets up cause she's in a huge hurry to get off the bus. Bus starts moving again violently, following typical 70s route procedure.

Woman falls completely on her ass.

Everyone in the front of the bus starts laughing.

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

  • Unemployed

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

  • Home from the cruise, off to Sunnyvale

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
