(19:37:07) GoldenJimbo007: Had another little interesting driving story on the way to work today I'm sure chatters will find entertaining
(19:49:04) GoldenJimbo007: So every morning when I go to work for 7:00 AM, I encounter a ton of buses, and it gets super irritating
(19:49:12) GoldenJimbo007: They stop all the time, they drive super slow, etc
(19:49:25) GoldenJimbo007: So this morning I got stopped behind a bus TWICE, nearly putting me late for work
(19:49:39) GoldenJimbo007: I thought I had it cleared when it turned right, but nope, one up the road was another bus coming right at me with a group of kids waiting about a block ahead
(19:49:50) GoldenJimbo007: I race to beat the bus past its "red light, stop sign" point, but to no avail, I'm way short
(19:50:07) GoldenJimbo007: I eventually said f this, and gunned it past the bus
(19:50:20) GoldenJimbo007: Bus driver lays on the horn, I flip him off (first instinct), and race off to work
(19:50:30) GoldenJimbo007: Guess I'll keep my eyes open for a ticket
(19:52:58) ngonhislaptop: you do realize when you try to bird a bus driver you're ACTUALLY birding 25 eight year olds right?

(20:20:33) isthatagoodt: lol you're getting a ticket
(20:20:35) isthatagoodt: have fun being fucked
(20:20:49) isthatagoodt: bus drivers have basically a 100% rate at getting you, i'd know
(20:20:50) GoldenJimbo007: I'll dispute it
(20:21:31) isthatagoodt: nah there's no disputing it either
(20:22:07) isthatagoodt: i hear about these all the time
(20:23:03) isthatagoodt: my dad is the transportation director for a school so he deals with it several times per year
(20:23:46) isthatagoodt: iowa recently upped the penalties for this too, fine up to $675 and possible jail time for passing a bus with the stop sign out
(20:24:11) isthatagoodt: after a 7 year old girl 1 town over got demolished by a dude in a pickup going 50mph
(20:24:30) COME as u r337: but did the dude flip the driver the bird as he went flying by?
(20:26:36) GoldenJimbo007: If it's some outrageous ticket I'll prob just ignore it conveniently
(20:26:56) ngonhislaptop: another flawless Jimbo strat, cool cool

(20:31:01) isthatagoodt: you said you were behind the bus
(20:31:27) GoldenJimbo007: no no I was pissed because I was behind 2 buses already
(20:31:36) GoldenJimbo007: When that bus turned right, I was in the clear
(20:31:42) GoldenJimbo007: Except for one in the distance (coming toward me)
(20:31:50) isthatagoodt: oh, then what were you speeding for you idiot
(20:32:12) isthatagoodt: you could have killed a kid for no reason
(20:32:23) COME as u r337: jim i can hear the swat team choppers above your trailer now
(20:34:35) GoldenJimbo007: Yeah it's always to awful with buses when I work at 7
(20:34:51) COME as u r337: leave 3 minutes earlier?
(20:35:09) GoldenJimbo007: Would have to be like 7 mins earlier or so
GoldenJimbo007 has left the room

(22:07:25) Infilament: jim driving story is insane
(22:07:51) Infilament: who guns it past a stopped bus driver because they're upset, then flips the bus driver off lol
(22:08:48) Infilament: the entitlement is insane to me
(22:09:07) ngonhislaptop: he had no choice, it was either risk the lives of children the world over, or wake up 5 minutes earlier
