the express bus can be super boring. everyone is super professional. and no one talks. but on occasion, the 667 has some fun, thanks to a big bus driver with big dreams.
this guy really works the bus mike. typical drivers use it to call out stops. this dude makes sound effects, like a jet engine, to make the bus sound faster. he also does announcements like a radio DJ, announcing the time, day of the week, and daily forecasts. one of his favorite things to talk about is joyrides.
driver: i'm going to give you all two choices. now it's a beautiful sunny day, i can either continue driving you all to work, or we can go for a joyride. what'll it be?
passenger 1: joyride!
passenger 2: take a detour!
keeping in mind these are the same passengers that usually never speak. but then the driver has to let them down easy.
driver: i'd love to do that, but i need to keep this here job. so maybe once i win the powerball, you all can bust out your cell phones, call in sick and we'll go for that joyride.
like i said earlier, this driver is a big man with big dreams. and if he won the lottery not only will he give joyrides. but he also has plans of living in a downtown condo and have his own limo driver. then he's going to buy the metrodome and make it into a big party room. complete with a sandy beach. so even when it's cold out, the people of minnesota can enjoy a nice swim in lake metrodome.
even though he has yet to take us for a joyride, it's still a joy to ride his bus.
