Patience is a Virtue

Posted on Thu, Nov 10, 2011 at 11:57 AM

You were sitting behind me in one of the back seats, huffing and puffing the whole time, because the bus wasn't going as fast as you would have liked. We hit a red light and you say out loud to yourself, "Seriously?? Some of us have jobs to go to." What was your problem? It's a red light, that's life.

When we got to the bridge terminal and the bus driver opened the doors, I stopped and stood in front of you by the back door and I made a point to let about 15 people ahead of me to get off. See, I did that on purpose just to piss you off some more because you were an annoying impatient ass. Of course, you let out the mother of all sighs."I'm gonna miss my connection!!" you shout out. As if the world revolves around you. You didn't make your connection; I saw you trying to chase down the departing #1. Was I a dick to stop and let everyone (but you) ahead of me, essentially causing you to miss your connection? Maybe. But maybe you need to leave earlier and catch an earlier bus! Just sayin'. —Mr. Patient Guy
