Everytime I take the Foster bus there are usually several off-duty bus drivers who get on with me (one of the major depots is West of Foster). Last night I boarded with 2 female drivers who had just finished their shifts. When the bus pulled up, one of them said to the other, “It’s about time!” and the other one said “Right?”

And then here’s where it get’s public transit funny…

When the doors opened the first woman said to the driver,

“It’s about time! What? Are you going door to door tonight and seeing who needs a ride?”

Boom.

The place went up.

Everyone in a CTA uniform – which included 2 other off -duty drivers already on the bus – burst into laughter.

Then they all proceeded to say “door to door” about 10 times as the laughter died down.

Now, don’t try to do this with the El — it won’t translate. You need the human element of the bus driver in order to make this knee slapper sing.

Try it next time you bus is late.

It will kill.

Your welcome.
