When you have a tedious job, you have to take some pleasure in small victories. Ditching losers who are so arrogant they think buses should wait for them is one of those wins. The fact you were stuck in the snow is just a bonus.

I remember being at a transit hub in the middle of winter, with about 6 people waiting for a particular bus. As soon as it came we all started walking towards it, only to have it take off as soon as the first person reached the door. That was the last day I took the bus.

Please, that is not FML. I lost my bus pass a few weeks ago and had to walk home, 4 of my bus passed me on the way back. And yes, it was freezing. I still didn't bother posting it though. Know why? Cause it's not FML enough.

oh come on >_> it's not like I said anything overtly offensive, just that basically life screws people over and you should get over it. A missed bus is hardly as bad as a ripped out earring.

Hey, Frosc, I'm just gonna step in and say this before "someone" else hammers you: read the comment rules! And yes, I do aspire to be a moderator one day. Fortunately for idiots like you though, I'm too mentally retarded to meet the probable requirements :D

that happened to me once, only it was a ski bus and I had just put my skis on the side of it, when it took off. I then had to track it down and get my skis. it took me a whole day to find the bus. public transportation sucks

Keep furiously trying to flex your back past that one vertebra, TwoZeroOZ. You'll manage it one day and end up with more than egg on your face.

There's this bus driver here in Madison, WI who lets all the black people on the bus for free and makes everyone from the other races pay. Some bus drivers are just really annoying.

Depends on where you live. Quebec not so much if you utter a word of English. Yes I'm Canadian and yes I've been to Quebec. All other provinces are pretty nice though :D

Seriously ? There's stupid people everywhere (probably more here in Quebec but yeah..), and it's not because one stupid guy hated on you because you were talking english that everyone in Quebec is not polite... Don't hate on us because of one retard.

Yeah I'm from Edmonton and I remember our bus drivers being awesome. Seems like Alberta is above average for bus services though, considering the rest of the comments on here.

agreed>.< some bus drivers in Ottawa are such assholes (of course there are some really nice ones)!!! I was waiting for my bus couple of weeks ago, my bus drove right by me with me at the stop waiting to get on! >.<

As someone already pointed out, bus drivers serve the public. I hope one day an ambulance decides to take off on you because you took too long answering the door.

You're really trying to get into it with the King of Sarcasm on FML? Not to mention that there is a very big difference between a bus driver and an ambulance driver. A bus driver has a very strict schedule to keep, and holding up an entire bus full of people (who actually WERE punctual enough to make it to their bus stops on time) just for one slow person is ridiculous. An ambulance driver, on the other hand, is there for ONE sick person who potentially needs to go to the hospital. Get a clue.

Haha Doc, you're a hoot. Sarcasm is tough to translate over the internet unless you know the person ;) And OP did say "by seconds", did he not? Have you ever been in a Canadian winter? Buses waiting for people isn't a courtesy, it's a requirement.

Generally, buses waiting for you is actually not a requirement, but a courtesy. You're the one who is supposed to be waiting at the bus stop. If OP was just a few seconds trot away from the bus, the driver is indeed an @sshole. But, if it were a whole block, you're too much of a hold-up.
