How do they do it?

November 23, 2005 at 8:35 am 9 comments

There was a story on the news last night about a minibus.

This minibus was a 28 seater bus and was stopped by the police yesterday morning. When it was stopped, there were over 100 people on the bus. Many of these were school children.

Now I’m wondering:

1. How the hell do you fit that many people on a bus – that’s 4 times as many as are supposed to be on there?
2. How can we expect our children to do well at school when they arrive there like that?

    When the photographer asked the guy in the middle:”How many passengers are there on the bus?”
    “They’s just three of us, maaaaan!”

    I sometimes took the bus in Jamaica just to see what it was all about.

    It was horrendous. Awful. Nightmarish. I have pages of descriptions in a hand written diary.

    Politicians should be forced to take the bus. It might make them care enough to make some changes.

    Porno videos on the bus? Is that normal in Guyana? I have heard of people actually having sex on buses in Jamaica but it was on one particular bus, it involved area leader/gunmen types and school girls. But that was not the norm, as far as I know… loud music now! Yes, I used to love that myself. Still do!
