A Bus Driver Experiences the Ride from Hell After Picking Up a Little Old Lady

It’s often said that patience is a virtue, and if you’ve ever had your patience tested to the limit, then you know this is an understatement. Keeping your composure while someone continuously gets on your nerves is one of the toughest things we can do. People who work with the public manage to do this every day, some for many years. The trick is to find a way to disassociate from the irritating situation while remaining calm, courteous, and friendly. This is no easy task, and it’s a skill that’s never fully appreciated, much less compensated by employers. Take the bus driver in this story, for example. He thought it would be just another relaxing day on his route until he picked up a certain passenger who took him on a wild and aggravating ride.

A bus driver was plying his regular driving route when an old lady got on the bus and sat behind the driver,[1]

For every ten minutes into the ride, She kept asking the driver a question.

The first ten minutes into the ride, the old woman piped up and asked the driver,

“Have we reached Falls Creek yet, sonny?”

Turning to the woman, the driver replied that they were yet to get to Falls Creek, and whenever they got there, he was going to inform her.

As the hours passed,

The old woman kept asking if they had gotten to Falls Creek, and it was beginning to get on the nerves of the driver.

The driver got frustrated with the constant badgering and could not help but give a sigh of relief when a little town came in view.

Eager to drop the woman and get done with the questioning, he slammed his legs on the brake, pulled over and called out to the woman saying:

“This is where you get out, lady.”

The old woman asked if it was indeed Falls Creek, and the driver replied in the affirmative and yelled at the woman to get out.

Smiling at his answer, the woman explained sweetly that she was not getting down at Falls Creek as her final stop was the town ahead.

Confused at her answer,

The driver wanted to know why she kept badgering him, and she said,

“It’s just that my daughter told me that when we got this far, I should take my blood pressure pill.”
