I am not sure this picture caught it well, and I had to rush to get my camera on, but basically, someone put a planter exactly where the bus door opens–two planters in fact. Not only that, but the plants contained inside of them are huge.
Yes, I suppose the bus driver could have avoided this. However, since this has happened every day this week, I see it as more of a plan by the bus driver. Maybe they don’t want anyone entering by the back doors. Maybe the bus driver is really into schadenfreude. Maybe, they’ve got a pool going at the depot to see how many people can the block from entering or exiting the bus.
Maybe this was just a random accident that they can’t be bothered fixing. Maybe beautification of the area takes precedence over ease of use for public transportation. I guess I shouldn’t fault their intentions. You know what they say about the best laid plans of mice and people.
All I know is that this morning, to my sleep deprived brain, and not in a schadenfreude kind of way, I found this incredibly humorous. I chuckled out loud, thinking that some people would join in with me. When they didn’t, I didn’t take it personally. I know what’s funny, and this was funny. I daresay, this was today’s Perfectly Funny Moment.
