Another transit bitch......

Dear Bus Driver. I know you're on a schedule and all that but fer cripes sake....can you wait just a second until my ass is seated? I'm a lot older than I used to be and I move a little slower, so sometimes getting to that lone empty seat at the back of the bus takes me a second or two longer than it used to...but then you decide to mash the pedal to the floor and I end up grabbing bars or seat backs or other riders, just to keep my face off the floor! I've seen it happen to other folks a lot older than me...and to people with or out of strollers...and people trying to carry a half dozen grocery bags. I know sometimes your bus is so packed that we have to stand but at least I'm ready for that....when you decide to take off before I'm seated and I'm not aware....well, my friend, that's bordering on dangerous.... —Upright...for now
