Schedule, Motherfucker, Adhere to It

Dear Haligonians/New Students, please, please, please do your fellow passengers on the bus a favour and find a route schedule, invest in a cellphone or check the schedule online. Just do something other than wait until the bus is LEAVING the stop/terminal before you start doing the funky chicken in an attempt to get the driver to stop. I know it's probably a shock to a lot of you, but Metro Transit DOES have a schedule that they have to adhere to as best as possible. Having to load the bus, pull away from the curb... only to have to stop again to pick you up doesn't do anything to help keep that schedule. As a matter of fact, it tends to make a bus load of people late because you don't give a damn. You actually deserve to be left behind, flailing like a seizing chicken as the bus continues on its way. Actually, I encourage everyone out there that agrees with me to speak up and yell at the driver to KEEP GOING or at the very least, give the idiot hell when they finally haul themselves onto the bus. Shame and embarrassment work wonders. I will be kind though and offer some "insider" information that I have gleaned over the years to pass along to everyone in hopes that it helps even ONE person; the buses are considered to be "on time" if they are between 3 minutes late and 3 minutes early. That's pretty basic math here, but for those of you that can't figure it out, for example, if the bus is supposed to be there at 10:00am, that means you should be STANDING AT THE STOP - and not sauntering towards it like a jackass - at least by 9:57am, if not sooner. So, do your fellow bus riders a huge favour - pick up those feet and put some effort into it! —Time's-a-ticking
