It Just Takes One Bus……

Ok… one bad apple doesn’t spoil the whole bunch (insert whatever other cliche you want).  No doubt I have seen some GOOD bus drivers.  BUT, I can pretty much assure that ALL of you have seen this.

So the theory behind buses is that they’re  supposed to create LESS traffic, right?  But, here at the blog, we have ANOTHER theory…it only takes one bus to screw up a whole line of traffic!  You see traffic held up on a main road… you just assume it’s a bus…unless you’re at the Squirrel Hill Tunnels.

Now, just so you know, this bus WAS stopped taking on a passenger when this picture was taken and, while it’s hard to tell, the red car on the right isn’t even close to the bus stop.  Also, you would think that the passenger would LOVE to step up into a bus from the curb as opposed to stepping out into curb-slush and walking out into the middle of the street.  But noooooooooooooo let’s save the power steering fluid for something more difficult… budgets are tight these days!!!

Bus drivers, we know you have it tough… feeling bullied with everyone doing their best to speed around you and cut you off but REALLY???  You can’t pull that thing in any closer to the curb?

Pretty sure that your CUSTOMER would appreciate it if you’d pull over to the side of the road to pick up them up aaaaaaaaaaand….if you do that, the ever-growing line of cars that have been behind you for the last 5 stop lights and 9 bus stops, in which some are male drivers over the age of 65 and have to pee frequently, would be able to go around you and go on about our life’s work, YA JAGOFF!!!

Tax Preparation Jagoffs

YJ-Taxes

Ya know, we typically reserve this blog post for those that are giving Pittsburgh/Pittsburghers a bad name. But, honestly, I can’t say that today’s blog post is specifically about Pittsburghers “gone wild” or “gone mad.

All that I know is this: It seems like everywhere I drive, every town, has someone who has sold their soul to dress as the Statue of Liberty and stand on a street corner or in the middle of the street to attract customers into bringing their tax preparation duties to THEM!!!

(This is going to be a short post because there isn’t much more to poke fun at then a person dressed as the Statue of Liberty yelling their head off in the middle of Greensburg, or Belle Vernon or Bellevue.)

To those companies employing the dancing, yelling Statue of Liberty Stand-ins…..Do you REALLY think that hiring a local  unshaven person  (including legs),  putting them in a $2.78 Statue of Liberty suit, along with the $10 (Times Square fair market NYC value) Statue of Liberty foamy crown and then have them yell or spin a sign, while the wind blows the Statue of Liberty “robe” up over their belly so that we can see their jeans, instills confidence in ME that I should pick up the phone and call YOU to do my taxes?  Save the, costumed characters and sign spinners for hoagie sales,  Ya Jagoffs?
