prose from my ride: someone tried to get off in the back but I guess the back door wasn’t opening. he, clearly a seasoned rider (somewhat, at least), yelled “back door” as we all would if we were in this situation but the driver started to drive away. he said it a little louder two more times. don’t know if the driver didn’t hear it or if he was tired and already behind schedule or what but he kept driving almost at a full speed. people kept chiming in (“back door” “he said back door” “etc”) and finally someone asked if the driver was deaf (“are you deaf”). he then stopped the bus and opened the back door so we know he isn’t deaf. the guy who got off started walking in the same direction the bus was going, which makes me wonder why he was so insistent on going out the back anyway. to be fair this bus driver has been giving sass all night.
