Brown paper packages, tied up with string

This bitch is for the curly-haired woman who before getting off my bus on Friday, told me of how her friend had to quit her job because she could not get her children to day care because of the strike, and that all my friendliness does not make it better, and implying that my jovial attitude was induced only because of the big fat bonus I received. FYI:

a) I am truly sorry that your friend had to quit her job.
b) I had the same friendly, jovial attitude before the strike. I always say hello to EVERYONE who gets on my bus, and with a smile at that. So why would I change? Would you rather I curse you and scowl? I dare to be different. Ever wonder why many bus drivers are sullen and cranky if their job is so cushy, easy, and as you think, overpaid? Think about that for a moment... Something is not adding up. We should all be happy as pigs in shit! I'll wager my big fat bonus you have not a clue.
c) We, the drivers, are not the only ones who should bare the brunt of your ire. Spew your venom at Metro Transit's management and the people who run this city s'il vous plait, because this tango had more than two dancers, and just as much to blame for your friend's demise.
d) As for our big fat bonus, the tax man got his fair share. In some cases more than half.

So my dear the next time you are waiting for a bus, and you see that it's me driving, and you don't want to be subjected to my friendly and jovial nature, then by all means wait for the next bus. Or maybe you should make up my mind what you want, because it seems I'm damned if I do, and damned if I don't. Oh yeah, almost forgot, the trees are starting to bud... and I like kittens and sunshine, flowers and tea. Ta ta Toots! —These are a Few of My Favourite Things
