School Bus Smoking Section

Kelley had jury duty this morning, so we had the very unusual opportunity to walk to the subway together. As we were walking, we heard this booming stereo and smoke billowing from a parked vehicle.

If the school bus is a rockin', don't bother knockin'!

I can honestly say I've never seen that combination coming from a school bus before. I had to take a picture. Kelley asked if I wanted her to stand next to the bus in order to be a little less conspicuous. I said no thanks, I'll just take the picture. After all, the dude is sitting in a school bus. What's he going to do, yell and start following us?

That's exactly what he did. He was pissed. "Hey!!! What the hell are you doing??!!" We kept walking. After we had gone around a corner, I looked back to see him standing there, staring me down.

In case you are wondering, the music was "Umbrella" by Rihanna. The smoke was tobacco.

We're lucky we made it out of there alive.
Not so lucky are the children who will ride the bus, arriving at their destination smelling like they've been in a tavern, and a step closer to developing lung cancer.

Or amputation, which we know is the real hidden danger of smoking!

I've always felt sorry for bus drivers and really think allowing them to smoke cigarettes while driving is the least we can do for them. If Otto can listen to music on "The Simpsons", smoking seems like a given.

Do people still listen to that awful song?

I don't know what's worse, but I still get grossed out by that commercial and that woman's finger-stubs (or are they stumps?)

Those children will get off the bus reeking with a bad smella.. smella.. smella.

Dude where the hell were you born Nebraska?

Stevie Wonder could have seen this drama coming.

Bus drivers have been overly scrutinized so they will act crazy when they are taking a break and someone snaps a pic of them.

They feel they can get caught up in some new 9 exclusive scandal again and will go straight Rambo on that ass especially in NY.

My advice...Don't do it again.

I'm surprised you didn't walk up to him and ask for a drag or pull of his lucy. (yeah..I know smokers slang)
