    I'm already no fan of Washington Dc's Public transportaion save for It's subway itself. But today made me almost burn with it's incompetence.

    I just got out of my last class for the day and i'm on the bus heading home. It's a 45-70 min bus ride depending on traffic and the Bus is just outside Fort Belvoir I'm the only one on the Bus when the Driver looks back at and Say's "Hey I'm going to pull over and buy some Chicken"

    So He pulls over at a Bus stop,Get's out of the bus and leaves me alone on the side of Richmond Highway to buy some Chicken........10 mins later he returns and takes me where I needed to go...

    This guy already took a 20 min break when he pulled into the Bus station then takes another while still transporting passenger(s).... I mean Cmon there's, a Subway ,and Starbucks right there after he pulls on Base!!! At least wait 5 mins and let me get off.


    Rant over

    Did you take down the number of the bus and file a complaint? I would have...that's more than unprofessional.

    That's very unprofessional. When I see buses pulled over with their four way flashers on, getting a bite to eat, they have "NOT IN SERVICE" flashing across the top, so people know that he's not in service and he's taking a break.
    Report it.

    ha, ever take public buses in Mexico? When I lived in Guadalajara, people were literally hanging out the door and I almost had the bus take off with me and my mom had already gotten off. The only decent thing was that people had the honor system and would pass the bus fare from the back to the front.

    At least you didn't have to take another bus after that one.
    Or wait in one of the worst cities in the country.
    Or have creeps on the bus try selling you something illegal.
    Or have creeps asking personal information.
    Or have young girls carrying babies of their own ask you to marry them.
    Or have some idiot leave a smelly can of octopus tentacles behind.
    Or a smelly-ass hobo.
    Or faint and cause the paramedics to come.
    Or drive through no less than 3 construction zones.
    Or have a driver that throws a fit on where the proper stop is.
    Or total another car ten feet from your stop, and you can't get off until the authority comes and asks witnesses what happened, which can take hours.
    Or have the bus break down. In the middle of a major bridge.


    But, yeah, that is ridiculous and you really should report him.

    I'd have reported. Or at the very least got him to get me some chicken too.

    Personally I loathe any kind of public transport. I avoid it whenever I can.

    I hate my school bus...the leg room is atrocious, so I normally have to take up two seats (i'm helluva tall for a 14 year old) and when ever someone is going to sit next to me I give them a very angry look. Normally they just move on but if not then when I get of the bus, my knees hurt because they can hardly fit in the limited space give. Damned buses :L

    I can't tell you how often I've almost been smashed by a bus driver that didn't look to see if anyone was next to him when he changed lanes. I hate buses.

    I actually think that is illegal leaving you unattended in the bus like that

    Thought my buses were bad; this sounds like Weird Al's 'Another One Rides The Bus'.

    I don't have much experience with city buses, but I absolutely loathe riding the school bus. It makes me feel like absolute crap every single time. I tend to get some motion sickness (not bad enough to make me actually throw up, but bad enough to make me feel pretty bad for a while), and it's much worse on the bus than in any other vehicle. The school bus always smells bad, and many of the people are so loud and annoying.

    Am not riding the bus until I can get protection against sexual female stabbers.

    Men need rights too.
