"Predictable," "easy"...

A bus pulls up to a group of girls at a campus bus stop and the door opens. The girls don't get on.

Bus Driver: Where are you going?
Girl #1: Downtown
Bus Driver: This bus goes downtown.
Girl #1: No, we're waiting for the 6.
Bus Driver: Oh, the 6? It broke down at the bottom of the hill. It's being towed and it'll never come.
Girl #2: Really?!
Bus Driver: PSYCH!

The bus driver closes the doors and pulls away. He picks up the microphone.

Bus Driver: (to passengers) Man, Western girls are so predictable... It must be all the alcohol!

-- 2 Dundas, overheard by Alix

I suspect that those girls were wearing (or planning to wear) UGGS when this happened.

As such, I am disgusted by the bus driver's cowardice and inability to perform his patriotic duty by promptly plowing his vehicle through the subhuman UGG-toting filth.

Welcome back, Western! I look forward to having you join me on my noble quest, and to beheading those of you who do not.

I assure you that this was not bullshit. The bus driver continued to stay on the microphone afterward and tell us all about his day... there were about 20 of us on it and eventually people were reguesting that he tell us jokes.


(P.S. I don't have bugs)

That was so unnecesarily rude and unfunny of the busdriver. Just because the girls were gullible does not make them typical "Western Girls", or "drunk". His comment makes no sense. He's probably bored with his job and jealous that Western students are getting a real education.

You know what's great? When a bus driver, who nonetheless has a university route, can outsmart his own riders!

Those dumb fucks.

"This bus goes downtown" Any intelligent person would have got on at this point. IF the bus driver did indeed do this, then props to him (or her) for calling it on those girls.

11:32, the 2 Dundas goes to the part of downtown with the most hobos. Nobody wants that.

what we've probably failed to clarify here is that these girls were looking to go to Starbucks/downtown, not McDonald's/downtown where the 2 dundas goes. Also, every city bus I've been on in London has never had a microphone to speak into, only a bus driver that yells for everyone to move back and make room.

Have you ever been in a tour bus, where the tour guide has one of those "walky-talky" things that they use to point out locations? They have them on the city buses too, although this was the first time I'd ever seen it used.

The Bus Driver wasn't being mean, the girls actually laughed with him. He was really funny.

7:27 pm: I believe 9:33 am meant the Starbucks at Central Ave. / Victoria Park. The 2 doesn't go near there.

The LTC busses actually do have microphones to talk to passengers with... drivers just don't use them ... except the guy on the 9C/6 combo at night who tells us which buses are at Nat Sci if we want to switch, how long hes going to dick around a bus stop, and that we shouldn't use the back door because of ice in the winter.

I think only the newer buses have the microphone system.

they should announce street names as you come up to major intersections like in other cities. no more of this old guy asking everyone around him five times "is it at oxford yet" business.

Actually, there's this one older lady who announces the stops on the 2.. I kinds wish more of them would do that.. although she sounds like she inhaled a few tobacco plants.
