On Friday I was going to catch the #14 bus heading downtown at Oxford and Allan streets. I was just about to cross the street when the bus pulled up. I sprinted across the street to catch it, only to have the bus driver pull away from the stop as I was a feet from the door of the bus. He then proceeded to stop at the Quinpool and Oxford stop for as long as it took me to walk to the lights, only to pull away again as I was crossing through the intersection. I didn't really expect him to stop at that point anyway, but it was the icing on the fail cake.
Yesterday morning, I was walking to the same bus stop at about the same time and called GoTime as I got to Allan and Harvard, just to make sure I was on schedule. I was, so it was too bad the #14 bus wasn't. He was well over 5 minutes early and yet he decided to blow past a guy at the stop waiting for the bus (which I saw from the crosswalk as I crossed to try and catch him again), but he then sat at the Quinpool/Oxford stop long enough for the following #1 to catch up and leave AT THE SAME TIME.
To that driver specifically: You are an ASSHOLE. Smarten up and drive your bus like you're supposed to, you jackass. I called to complain about you and give them your bus number, I'm not naive to think calling once is going to help but every single time you pull this shit I am going to be on the phone to complain about you.
You suck, and your driving sucks, and your attitude sucks.
