    Well, to clarify, I don't like feeling like it takes effort to keep control.

    I really really really do not enjoy being drunk.

    I enjoy whiskey and scotch and being buzzed is cool.

    But just flat out drunk, no, I do not enjoy.

    I do not enjoy not feeling in control. Which is why when I drop acid, it's going to be with my dad, because he is going to make tea and walk me through it. Because he knows and respects psychadelics and taught me they are very much not recreational substances.

    I sort of like being shit faced sometimes

    I'm pretty good at keeping control of myself when removed from my regular state of mind though

    I don't mind being buzzed but getting shitfaced like I used to in high school just isn't for me any more. That and I'm a big ole bitch when it comes to hangovers.

    I also don't like taking medicine that makes you sleepy like NyQuil or anything, even though I'm on hydrocodone right now. I also dislike weed a lot because it put me to sleep so quickly and I think it smells terrible.

    I don't get people who say it smells super bad though

    like, it just smells super planty?

    also it can vary a lot


    smells way better than gasoline and other chemical shit anyway

    I hear people saying all the time "oh yeah I love how my sharpie smells"

    yeah that's because it's literally forcing your braincells into a chokehold you twit

    I don't know, it just reminds me of sweat or something. I can't really describe it, but yes, it's better than like gasoline and other chemical-smelling things.

    Well, I can't smoke anymore anyways due to my job. I do wish I could smoke with my wife sometimes, like maybe before bed or something. I think that'd make for a great sleep.

  • Tommy2HandsTommy2Hands what is this where am i Registered User regular
    yeah that sounds like terrible fucking weed

    if it doesn't smell like oranges and wet grass then you're doing it wrong

    like seriously

    you may no longer bring bottles, thermoses, or any sealable bottles on the bus, unless it's never been opened

    no thermoses
    no sports bottles
    no bottles of water

    the job is slowly becoming less fun than it used to be

    change of scenery is in the works maybe

    What the fuck is the reasoning behind that Rane?

    Centrism is just the cowardly way to be a bigot w/o being explicit about it.

  • DarmakDarmak RAGE vympyvvhyc vyctyvyRegistered User regular
    I would guess so you don't bring bombs or flammable liquids on board or something?

    eg62xrm.jpg
  • RaneadosRaneados Registered User regular
    I cannot get a straight answer about that

    policies made by people who sit in offices all day

    oh I'm sorry sir you can't have that half empty bottle of water on the bus, it's been previously opened

    Hey, I was just throwing out dumb ideas

  • Tommy2HandsTommy2Hands what is this where am i Registered User regular
    what about flasks

    Cdcniho.jpg
  • Tommy2HandsTommy2Hands what is this where am i Registered User regular
    how do you prove that a flask hasn't been opened

    Cdcniho.jpg
  • HenroidHenroid Radio Demon Internet HellRegistered User regular
    The only thing I could think of is maybe there's too many spilled drinks? But if that was the case why the fuck would they be hush hush about it?

    we actually did a test run of the rule a few weeks ago, when it wasn't YOU'RE FIRED IF YOU DON'T ENFORCE IT

    nobody enforced it because it was such a ridiculous amount of hassle for no reason

    it is 95 degrees and 100% humid guys, people kind of want to have a drink

    so me, being a lover of rules, did my best to enforce it for a few days
    result: more trash on the bus, lots more, which I think was in protest
    more altercations with passengers, like 1000% more, likie 10000000% more
    more phone calls to HQ about the rule

    and we have to use dumbass lingo to explain it, because management refuses to accept the fact that they change any rules or policies, but they say that the ENFORCEMENT has changed, and even that sometimes doesn't fly in the wake of such an outright lie

    you've never been able to bring open liquids on the bus, which pisses off some people with coffees, but it's understandable, it's an open container of a big metal brick that sways and jerks all day long, so most passengers just deal with it and understand it, but now they can't bring annnnnyyy drinks on unless they've never been opened

    the test enforcement was a colossal disaster, everyone said as much, everyone told the bosses this
    and yet here we are :|


    the best part of it all is that the buses regularly get to 90-95 degrees. It's florida, the doors are constantly being opened, no windows are openable and there are dozens of people on at all times, and the AC frankly can't cope (because we have whiny+lazy mechanics, but it's not ALL their fault)

    so the buses get hot as shit sometimes

    and we work up to 12 hour shifts

    so the DRIVERS can have a bottle of water

    that sits right up front in the cup holder next to our faces trying to explain how bottles of water aren't allowed any more
    and that doesn't make me feel like a hypocritical dickhead at all :|

  • DarmakDarmak RAGE vympyvvhyc vyctyvyRegistered User regular
    I've only ever been on a school bus but I'm pretty sure if I ever rode a public one I'd be polite as hell to the driver.

    Once I caught a bus in America. It was hilarious!

    The bus was full so it didn't stop to pick up passengers, but a woman thought it would so she didn't pull the cord or whatever to signal that she wanted off, so she missed her stop.

    So what does she do? She starts screaming at the driver about how she's in labour and that it has to stop to let people on.

    The driver just calmly repeated something like, "The bus is at full capacity, I can't let anyone else on. If you want to get off, pull the cable to let me know" as she kept yelling and screaming at him.

    The best part? Because she didn't pull the cord or whatever, he kept driving past several stops until someone else wanted to get off.

    and then they drop into super sonic
    I get threatened by burly men daily
    and lots of things no longer phase me

    like any accidents at all

    I could plow into the side of a car running a red light and all the tires could fall off so my bus is roaring down the road with a shitty miata on the grill and sparks flying out the back

    and I'd be like

    :| did i leave my porch light on? hmm

    Rane, you are a crazy bastard. In a good way,
    I'd sig part of one of those posts for sure if we still had sigs.

  • stimtokolosstimtokolos Registered User regular
    I am polite to all the drivers on my bus line, because people should be polite to one another.

    My favourite driver is this old guy who 6 months after I started catching the line, disappeared to go on a holiday for maybe a month tops.
    When he came back he had a massive beard which has never disappeared since. It is awesome.
    Then he had his sleeves rolled up and had big tattoos. He is cool dude.

    psychadelic drugs are my favorite recreational thing and i enjoy smoking as much as i hate to admit it and i love drinking but uh oh i have diabetes and am going to die and go to hell oh well shit happens im sure ill stop doing things eventually probably not woops

  • HenroidHenroid Radio Demon Internet HellRegistered User regular
    Reminds me of the one party I went to in highschool. This diabetic girl was there, everyone was suppose to watch how much she was drinking. Then they didn't. So she passed out falling face-first into the lawn and was out cold for a day and a half.

    Yay self-control.

    Yay friends watching out for you.
