Just saying, he wouldn't have been a prick to not let you on, you had no way to pay the fare.
Oh I was ready to get off until he waived me on and he wouldn't have been a prick either because it was my fault, but I had him yesterday and he realized that I probably forgot my usual MetroCard at home. My comment about some of them being pricks has nothing to do with that. I was referring to the disposition of some of them. Some of drivers out of Yonkers have to be some of the most arrogant, rude B/Os I've ever seen. What I mean by that is them not holding the bus for passengers and I know they see them too, but they close the door and pull off anyway.
There was a BxM1 driver last Sunday that was unbelievable. He saw a lady running for the bus at Kappock St and there wasn't another BxM1 for an hour. He pulls off and goes down Johnson and Irwin down the hill. What was awesome was this chick was athletic, so she bolted down the hill and ran all the way from Kappock and Johnson to 230th and Corlear or either got a ride down the hill and then ran to the bus stop. I couldn't believe it because either way she covered some serious ground. She didn't say a word either. She just got on when he stopped at the stop, paid and sat down.
