Public transportation “rules”

Being closely related to the previous post and considering that for the past 3 weeks I had the honor of using public transportation, I thought I’d share my personal rules about the whole thing. I had also invaluable insight from Freya, she is much more experienced in the subject at hand. So, here goes:

  1. Driver: if you are sleeping then better stay the hell home in bed instead of driving with 15km/h when the road is clear.
  2. Driver: the bus is not a matchbox you can shake whenever it pleases you, there are passagers inside. Don’t break like a madman, don’t accelerate suddenly, don’t break 20 times a minute.
  3. Driver: when you stop at the end of the line, open ALL doors so that people can get off, not only the front door.
  4. Passenger: for the love of God, wash yourself!
  5. Passenger: get your ticket, money or your wallet ready BEFORE you get on the bus, don’t start looking for your wallet in 10 your thousand bags with a line of people waiting behind you.
  6. Passenger: have a bit of respect and don’t yell when you talk with somebody else, on the phone or otherwise. Nobody wants to know what your mother in law did yesterday, nor how you bad you looked this morning when you woke up.
  7. Passenger: whenever possible, find out if this is the right bus for you BEFORE you get on it. Don’t make the people behind you wait while you discuss all kind of shit with the driver.
  8. Passenger: when the bus stops and the doors open, don’t just stand like a retard in front of the door blocking people! Get off or move away.
  9. Passenger: when you want to get on the bus, let people get off first. If they can’t get off, you can’t get in, simple. Think McFly! Think!
  10. Passenger: gotta say this again: Wash yourself!
