Thoughts about riding the bus


  • Not having to drive anywhere
  • Staying dry in the rain
  • The view of the Olympics from the top floor of a double-decker as we go down Richmond
  • That there are 3 bus routes to downtown leaving within 2 blocks of my house
  • Express buses (when I can catch them)


  • The guy two rows in front who’s iPod is on full volume and drowns out the sound coming from mine
  • The bus driver calling out every stop on the PA
  • The preteens who cluster together around the door preventing anyone from leaving and who are completely oblivious to this
  • People who talk in full volume on their cell phone
