I was going to my place of employment today to pick up my check. I rely on my town's bus line to get around, and there is one bus that stops right beside my apartment complex on a corner, and it takes me directly to work. I rely on this bus, and I had no major issues up until today.( Collapse )
To add insult to injury, I eventually got to my place of employment, only to find out that they printed my name incorrectly on my check, so I didn't even get my money today. FML.
Edited for clarity: I live in a small college town, and college students can ride the bus for "free" with their ID.
ETA: I called the transit's customer service, and they said that they will speak to the driver to make sure it doesn't happen again. I wasn't trying to accuse the driver of anything, but I just don't want this happening again because I ride that bus to get to work. I didn't have to work this day, but it would have sucked if I was late because of this.
I also mentioned the problem with the cell phone. That's definitely against their policy, and I'm guessing that it's against the policy for a lot of bus companies. So, if you see a bus driver on a cell while operating a bus, report it.
