Off-track & Kick-out

Take away the ball cap and the pony-tail...

One of the female drivers has friends who have just opened a new pub downtown, so she organized a bus driver's pub night to help her friends kick off their new venture. It was a huge success. The idea appears to have tapped into an unspoken need in drivers. Except for a few who get together... Sign in to see full entry.

I hate my five p.m. self...

It's disturbing what a difference 12 hours can make. That's all it takes for me to turn from Dr. Jekyll into Mr. Hyde. Great, classic old story that was... the original tale about split personality. (As a side note, which one was the bad guy, anyway? I often forget. Dr. Jekyll [strange name] seems... Sign in to see full entry.

The young fellow in a wheelchair ...

... boarded my bus again yesterday, accompanied by his male nurse. As always, the nurse quickly and efficiently attended to all the straps and restraints. That's usually my job when a wheelchair passenger boards, but in this case I guess the nurse feels he's responsible for anything to do with his... Sign in to see full entry.

They don't smell so swell...

Today, during a lay-over, a few of us bus drivers were talking about the common smells you get on a bus. True, you can find these smells anywhere, but on a bus they're kinda concentrated and they become commingled, resulting in a truly horrendous miasma, kinda green-tinged with a purple border....

Nice to be back. I stepped out for a couple of years. Got busy, I guess. Anyway, I'm a transit operator (bus driver) now, and loving it. I work for a great company with good pay, good benefits... oh, yeah, and a good supply of interesting folks (passengers). Mind you, some of them don't smell so... Sign in to see full entry.

You want me to buy what?

Normally, such items would be invisible to me, but these I felt compelled to buy. I have no idea what I'll do with them. Baby booties? I'm a single, mid-fifties male whose fatherhood prospects are twisting in the wind like ghost-town laundry. I reckon I'll just put them in my sock-drawer where they... Sign in to see full entry.

Just when I was comfortable with my opinion...

I enjoy observing my fellow human beings. Mostly I like to do it when they're unaware of me, because then there's no affect, no posing. There's a fella I've been crossing paths with in my town for a few years now and I've never liked him much, all based on appearances. We've never spoken to one... Sign in to see full entry.

I should raise a stink...

So I get home, check my mail, then head for the elevator. It arrives up from the parkade level and out bustles this sizeable citizen with a shaved head and red beard. Must be new to the building; I've never seen him before. He makes a beeline for the mailboxes and calls over his shoulder, "Hold up,... Sign in to see full entry.
