Ok my job as a bus driver is not to sit in judgement of people but to move them from point A all the way over to point B. I gave up the Judge crown a long time ago because it only leads to you being very upset and your riders feeling very bad. However, There are a few moments when something hits you and you can’t help yourself.

Her complaint: That there were no jobs in Portland.
That she had been on five interviews last week and didn’t have one call back. She went on two interviews today and they both went badly. She couldn’t seem to figure out what she was doing wrong.
So how was she going to spend her afternoon?
Looking for more work?
Doing call backs?
Resting up for the next days job hunt?
Nope, she was on her cell phone arranging to meet her friends for a little competitive drinking.
Is it just me?
Is everyone taking crazy pills?
Does she really not get it?
All I could do was bite my tongue and drive my bus.
Forgive my short post for today I have to do an early run.
