38, Well honestly, if you can't handle doing something as easy as waiting a few extra minutes to allow someone to get back on their feet after being hurt, I don't think anyone who is incapable to do is is really qualified to be a bus driver (in my opinion). I've seen drivers handle extremely difficult situations that are nothing compared to this.
I think you mean "damn cold"--as in cold-hearted. And I had to double-check to see that OP is NOT in DC and therefore was not trying to catch a Metrobus. And OP, I hope you got the bus number and can complain about what a total schmuck that driver is. But if the bus system in your area is anything like ours, it won't do a whole lot of good.

Wow that was fast , so basically ppl can be openly racist and disgustingly insensitive to others economical / social status but my comment is removed b/c I find the above mentioned offensive. The irony of this is too much this is an fml if I ever saw one.... Bite me fml and maggot brained moron who thought his comment was funny
pour 32 et 72.... Je suis Québécois, et fièrement. tout changement est très lent à percevoir ici, je vous l'accorde. Les gens du Québec sont fiers, très attachés à leurs traditions et à la supposée supériorité de l'archétype du Québecois pure laine. Si vous avez l'occasion de discuter avec des Québécois de moins de 30 ans, votre idée des gens d'ici changera, j'en suis confiant. les esprits s'ouvrent, les nôtres se font accueillants... par contre les jurons sont toujours omniprésents, tabarnaque...
I live in Quebec, and I'm hardly what you'd call an unfriendly person. I'm an Anglo living in Quebec, and I have best friends in both languages. I also used to go shopping in Vermont, and was never rude to anyone. My parents had a summer home in upstate NY, I spent plenty of time in the States, and the only people who were rude to me were this crazy evangelical family that didn't like me because I'd never been to church. Are there rude people in Quebec? Of course there are. There are rude people everywhere. But like everywhere, if you act like an entitled asshole, people will treat you like you're an entitled asshole - which is why you get Anglos treating some Francophones like crap, and vice versa. It's less apparent in the younger generations - I went to an English CEGEP and my entire circle of friends was Francophone. One of my best friends lives outside of Quebec city, she learned to speak English from reading BATMAN COMICS, and she writes in English better than some English majors I know. In other words, unfair generalization is unfair. Assholes are a universal problem.
you've obviously never had to work retail in upstate ny. quebecers are the absolute worst. and for some reason id say 6 out of 10 of them always question the price *points at the clearly marked price tag* is this zee price? you give me zee deescount? oh and id say 9 out of 10 of them raise their hand/finger (and sometimes snap at you like a dog) when they want help. rather than just saying "excuse me, can you help me please?" >_<
Yes, OP...I'm sure the driver wasn't referring to your brutal and painful accident, but instead, has Bron-KITE-us! In all seriousness though, what a douchebag. Better luck next time, hope you're able to complain on him.
If you were just sitting there, YDI. However, if you were trying to get up, he's a jerk for not waiting.
#27, You clearly haven't slipped and hurt yourself. It's happened to me before. I went ice skating once and it resulted in me not being able to feel my leg for about 5 minutes since my foot bent the wrong way. I had to have people help me up. You don't know how severely OP was hurt. OP didn't really deserve it. The driver was just being an impatient crybaby in my opinion.
