This makes me very mad and sad all at once. It is sad that, as a society, we need to be reminded that violence is never acceptable and not the answer when one is dissatisfied with the service they have received.
Yes, some bus drivers aren’t the ray of sunshine we want them to be and some of them can be real jerks but the following are never an appropriate action or reaction
– spitting on someone (how degrading is that?)
– verbal abuse (I have heard a passenger call a bus driver the “n” word — all this because the bus was late and passenger was annoyed about it; passenger did not take into account that there was a snow storm and a bus missing)
– physical assault
Is this the kind of world we want to live in? I hope not, because if it is, we are screwed beyond belief.
And this folks, was my 200th post. Thanks to all of you for reading, commenting and following. This place has such wonderful people, talent, creativity and support.
