Have You Ever Seen A Bus Driver Not Know The Way?

I have. This fucktard almost made me miss my flight. He took more than an hour to get from 125th St and Lexington Avenue to my terminal at LaGuardia (a trip that usually takes about 20-25 minutes). I'm sorry, I don't normally blog about personal experiences, but this was ridiculous. How can a bus driver not know his own route? And if it's not his route, why is he driving the goddamn bus? The poor sap had to get one of the regulars on the bus to help him. I don't think I'll ever see a bus driver getting directions again. Stupid MTA.

Someone probably called in sick and he was told to drive that route.

Would you have preferred he not ask directions and had just gone in the totally wrong direction?

no, i would have preferred they send someone who knew the route. or at least someone who studied it before taking it up.

Let's be honest. The real reason you almost missed your flight is because u did not leave ur house early enuf. Had you done that there would have been enuf time to factor in traffic jams or confused bus drivers.

Look in the mirror, not out the window. :)

I love the sympathy you're getting here Ahsan...so I'm going to add to it:

Well, if you think you're so smart then why didn't you drive the bus?

That felt good.

Notice he chose the cheapest way to get to the airport, $2 bus, and then complains.


Last month I missed a flight because I arrived at the airport late. When all was said and done, it was 1000% my fault as I clearly did not leave my house early enuf to account for any delays that might occur. I am still kicking myself. BUT, I hate to arrive anywhere early, including to the airport and I sometimes pay the price.
