The 30 day Blog challenge - Day 22

Saturday, July 27, 2013

Hello Lovelies, 

Apologies I am a bit behind, If you read Day 20's post it might give you an insight into what's been happening in my life. 

Day 22,  Rant about something. Get up on your soapbox and tell us how you really feel. (a pet peeve, a current event, a controversial topic, something your husband or roommate or neighbour or boss does that really ticks you off)

My Pet Peeve is bus passengers. I am a bus passenger I get up to 4 buses a day and what annoys me is people who get on the wrong bus, or who ask a million questions to the driver about where it stops. Especially when they don't know the name of the places they want to go to. 

I also get an express bus and the number is quite clearly marked with a BIG X and a scrolling message "LIMITED STOP". Yet every night people get on and try and get off where ever they want. They scream at the driver "BUT I PRESSED THE BELL". They argue, they rant and tant. In a lot of cases the driver does let them off, which is all well and good if it is a genuine mistake but over the past 2.5 years I see the same people get on and demand to get off where ever the hell they like. In some cases we've even told the person when they've got on we know they are on the wrong bus. 

I can now also tell people who are on the wrong but and try and tell them indirectly that they are on the wrong bus usually before we by-pass my local town centre by strangely enough going down the bypass! 

When I go any where and have to catch the bus I research, I plan, I ask people who I know are local to the area and ask then what buses I need. I look at websites, I look at Maps and I do this because of how annoyed I get on my express bus home. 
I know that it isn't always possible to plan and people mis-read signs and admittedly the express number is similar to the usual (I stop everywhere number) one letter instead of a number. 

But when it is the same people week in week out, day in day out it rubs me up the wrong way! If you follow my personal twitter you will see my daily tweets to my local bus company!
