The kid literarlly starts whooping. Like whooping at the top of his lungs whooping. “Yeee-HAWWWW!” Friend and foe alike start tossing oaths at dude and the now totally addled driver makes an announcement few understand, a request of some kind. He does so while making a turn and nearly hits a pedestrian on one of those left-hand turns into a WALK crosswalk that proved fatal last year. Pedestrian is anger-whooping and actually shaking a fist at the driver who looks absolutely stricken. Guilty, miserable, woe-begone; something. Just not at all angry or defensive. Culpable and lousy-eyed.
Unhappy Driver | TriMet Diaries
Poor bus driver...
My heart goes out to this driver. There are too many people (and about 99% of teens) who are so hostile to the bus drivers not being perfect to their standards or just plain ignorant. It is sickening.
TriMet has played a large hand in creating this for the bus system. We mostly have TriMet to blame. TriMet sets these guys up for failure and lets them take the beating.
