Video is of a crazy lady on a BART train.
Late one night, a friend was driving a bus. His only passenger was a crazy lady. The crazy lady was cursing and ranting to no one. Suddenly she stood up and walked to the front of the bus.
"Driver," she said, "There's a woman in the back of the bus who is being quite abusive. I can't stand having her talk to me that way."
My friend thought that one over for a minute and said, "Ma'am, what I need you to do is go back there and tell her that I will not tolerate that sort of behavior. Tell her that if she can't behave herself I'll have to ask her to leave the bus."
She walked back to her seat and delivered a stern lecture to her reflection in the window. After that, everything was quiet.
When I saw the picture below I had to ask, "Who is that fat old motherfucker? He looks overfed and underworked and just too goddam cheerful to be me." Then I remembered that, when I was overworked and hungry my great dream was to survive long enough to find an easy job and a soft situation. It took time
This is me, parking buses in the rain.
