A detour on the commuter bus into NYC clearly showed how little empathy people have for their fellow passengers.
Because of construction the bus was sent on a detour and ended up taking a wrong turn. When the driver realized what he had done he asked if anyone knew how to get back to his route.
I provided directions to quickly and easily turn around and get back on track and was immediately shouted at by several other passengers who insisted that he should take the next right and go directly onto Rt. 208.
When I pointed out he would then be unable to pick up the people still waiting along the regular route there was a collective (and loud) “So what!?”
I’m assuming the people acting this way are the same ones that will be on the phone to the bus company if the bus is a minute late.
When did getting to work 5 minutes earlier become more important that making sure that other people are looked after and treated fairly?
