Bus report

coach 964

ATL: no work.

I have Thanksgiving off, but must work Friday. (And I'm going full-time just in time to get to work Christmas, prolly)


Christmas must be a pretty lax shift, though? Maybe?

Yeah. And it's a Sunday schedule and the contract (well, the expired contract, anyway) says there are no combos on Sundays (i.e. no split shifts)

Are you going to dress up like Santa?

I recall when I was living in Olympia, every Christmas season, they would take one of the buses and deck it out for the holidays. They called it the "Jingle Bus." If you were lucky enough to be standing at your stop and have the Jingle Bus run your route, your fare was free.

I never once got to ride on the Jingle Bus. I imagine they specifically never put it on the 41 route, which was *the* Evergreen route.

You're asking this of the guy who's favorite holiday greeting is "Same to you, pal!"

Heh -- but I could see them putting that bus on your route since your the FNG.

well, if it wasn't too much work for them, yeah I could see that. it's too easy for them to assign coaches at random.

not that that's any help. when Experrience Music Project opened, Paul Allen bought full-body advertising on a couple of articulated coaches, and I got stuck with one of those a couple of times. I called it "The Purple Puker" due to it's "purple haze" background color.

Most drivers dislike coaches like that...it makes it too easy for onlookers to identify if something happens. ("Did you see what that stupid purple EMP bus did to my lawn??!?", etc.) I disliked it because it was so damned ugly...
