"I am Odds, the Great and Powerful"



Have you been practicing that greeting with people as they board the bus?

No for them I usually just say "Hello"

Also, "sorry but I am taking the window seat."

You do the "dog hanging out the window" thing? That's my happy place. Moving car, I want air moving across my face. Lol...

Do bus windows open? I don't think I've ever seen one with an open window. Maybe we need a bus thread to educate us westerners.

Although some city busses have windows you can open most do not.

I just like looking at the scenery and if I doze off the windows are good for resting my head.

The aisle seats I wind up dozing off and either falling on the window seat persons shoulder or falling into the aisle.

Maxpen knows a lot about busses and also has conversations with homeless people at bus stops.

I have probably seen him multiple times on Greyhound and didnt know it.

I was a bus rider in the 70s. Both city and interstate.

Back then the windows opened.

It was an improvement on today. The Chem toilet smell about knocks me over, but was a lot less concentrated when the windows opened.

I did take a bus in 1987 from Anniston, AL to Myrtle Beach, SC. The windows did not open, if I recall correctly. I remember it being a less than desirable experience.
I played baseball as a kid and took school buses to different towns for games. School bus windows opened.
I have ridden subways/metros quite a few times in many different cities. Sometimes that can be comical. In NYC I saw quite a few bums sleeping so we may have crossed paths. My NYC visits were mostly between 1995 and 2001.
I talk to homeless people just like I wind up talking to anyone else.

Every time (3 or so?) I’ve seen someone asleep on an rtc bus, they’re woken up and told they’ll be booted if it happens again, or they just got booted off at the next stop I’d assume the latter was multiple offenses.
