Another one for today. Different post than what I usually put up. Had my performance appraisal earlier this week. Hadn’t had one of these since I left the last building. Put it up here so y’all can read what they go over. (this is the copy they give you so you know what’s getting reviewed)












38 Geary Line. 6.14.13 Outbound. 2:20PM

When I get those crazies that rant and rave, they usually say what they gotta say and hop off the bus. BUT this tweeker said plenty for everyone to enjoy. 

With the construction happening at Union Square, all of us on the line were getting killed every time we went through there. This was my second trip and I was 30 minutes late at that time. Pretty much if everyone is late and you call central control  all they are gonna tell you is “continue in service operator”.

So as I made my way up Market I really didn’t pick up anyone at the stop at 1st.  Moving along i got the stop at Montgomery and I loaded up my passengers. I closed the door and moved up a bit and I seen this lady making her way to the bus but not with any real hurry to make it. My gut told me “don’t open the door…don’t open the door…don’t open the door…” but the driver in me just had to.  So I open the door and already knew this was gonna be one of those “yup should have listened to my gut moments.”

“oh hi baby thank you thank you for waiting for me” and she went to sit down . I move up a little more down the block and I hear say

“anybody got 2 dollars i can have? i’m not begging i’m just asking. its 2 different things. No? OK its all good” Then she came back up to me and asked me the same thing. I told her nah I ain’t got it but nevertheless what did she need the 2 dollars for. Then I realized I should have done that. That was the cue for her to initiate a full on conversation with me. Ugh.

“oh i’m from Sacramento. I gotta go to my house right now and then head back to Greyhound” and then she went back and sat down.  Since we were moving at a snail’s pace because of the traffic this female passenger came up to me right as I got to the intersection and said “can I get out here?” I told her I couldn’t let her out because we were pretty much in the intersection and that once I made it over I would let her off. The lady then walked back all mad. Now the other lady didn’t like that.

“You know you can’t get off here. The bus driver gotta worry about his job and the safety and not yo whiny ass. He trying to do things to get us where we gotta get to and yo just being disrespectful . They go through alot. Baby where you work at if you don’t mind me asking?” and the passenger responded to her! I dunno why she answered her after she basically insulted her but she did. All I could think of was “lemme make it across the street so I could drop off the female passenger; i don’t want them coming to blows.So it took me like 5 minutes to get across the street and when I had a good enough room,  I opened the front doors so she could get off. People got on and then I closed the door and then the other lady came back up. “you know you weren’t supposed to open the door like that for her.” I looked at her and told her that I was across the intersection and it was safe. She kinda wasn’t paying attention because and older Asian man got on and she just locked on to him from the jump.

“oh hello. you tourist? I like Asian men. But I may break you. You may not be able to handle all this little man. Do you got 2 dollars for me? ill take more 50 dollars…100 dollars.” Seemed like old man stopped paying attention to her and back she came up to bother me.

“baby, you look so good. I think you making me hot” Nah it’s the weather I told her. “nah its you. you making me horny” and she sat down right near the front this time. “I do everything. I’m just heterosexuals. Nothing else. But I do everything. EVERYTHING.”

Now mind you, this was a tweeker. Bony as shit, age had gotten to her , and not in a million years would I show any interest in someone like her. But there was no letting up from her.

“baby..look at my legs. How they look? you think they look good? go ahead touch them. c’mon go ahead and touch them.” nah i’m good. So I asked her where she gets off at. I had to know how much of this I could take before I kicked her off the bus.

“Oh I get off at Jones. What time you get off? you can come by if you want. What time you come back here? in an hr?” Oh ya I come back in an hour hahahah yeah right  ” OK ill be right here waiting for you. Or you can give me your number?” haaahaha nah you can wait right at the stop all night long .

I pulled up to the stop and at the moment she hopped off I shut them doors so fast, you would have thought I stole the bus.
