Bus Report #164

Excitement on the 38!

It's true! The most boring bus line actually had a spark of excitement today.

An older gentleman wearing a Star Trek jacket stood up and grabbed hold of a hanging strap, intending on making his way to the back door, where I was already waiting for my stop.
He started to walk toward the door when suddenly the strap broke and he was left clutching a useless black strap of nylon while trying to regain his balance on the moving bus!
We all watched, worried, as he started to tip over. He lurched in the other direction, and luckily got his balance back before he hurt himself.

He looked at the broken strap, shrugged, and threw it on the floor.

I let him get out the bus before me.

Only fair.
