Dear germaphobes!

Posted: November 21, 2012 in Uncategorized

So a few days ago I was on the bus that goes through Santa Monica and there was this guy! He got on the bus after me and proceeded to lay down about ten fast food napkins in the seat before sitting down. He actually took about ten minutes to accomplish this feat. All the while standing and balancing on a moving bus without holding onto anything. Which is a feat in itself due to the jerking and stoping. (Think of a surfer balancing on a moving wave)
Now I’m all for being smart about germs on these transports! I have hand sanitizer and I never lean my head on the windows no matter how tired I am. Have a girl catching SARS and shit! But really dude? Do you really think a bunch of napkins are going to do any kind of protecting against germs? Also it’s your ass dude! Have you never sat on a beach or on grass? That has more dirt than a seat on a bus. It really makes no sense at all. SMH!!! I wish I coulda gotten a video of him riding with no hands though it was kinda cool. Make it a new sport BUS SURFING!

Poop!

Posted: November 21, 2012 in Uncategorized

First off I apologize for the length between the last post and this one. I have been dealing with the difficulties that come with becoming what I call “vehicle independent”! Secondly this post is dedicated to my friend Bravo, who sent me a message on Facebook asking me where my posts went. So ladies and gentlemen lets talk about a situation I found myself in recently.

A few weeks ago I took the excruciating two and a half hour commute to work. The trip itself consists of only three connections that are about 40 minutes each. I get on my first bus and listening to my music when I notice that something smells like dog poop. I look around and realize that there was no one close enough to me to be the culprit. I then realize after further investigation that I am in fact the culprit and that I have shit all over my right sneaker!! Now here’s where it gets tricky! I have at this point only been on ten minutes of a fourty minute ride. What do I do? Do I try to wipe it off on the floor, and make the bus smell all day? Do I get off the bus in order to wipe it off ,thus interrupting my route,and hope I can get to work on time? Do I ask the bus driver to let me wipe it off at next stop real quick and hold up the rest of the commuters? Do I embarrass myself and ask if someone has a napkin? What does a person do in this situation? As I sat there smelling like a pound puppy I did the only thing I could think of. I sat with my toe on the ground and the poopy part of my foot in the air. FOR THIRTY MINUTES!
Did I get looked at funny by an old lady? Yup sure did!
But what was a girl to do? It was either be late to work or sit in shit!

Whose a soldier ……..this guy!

The dangerous side of walking

Posted: October 22, 2012 in Uncategorized

So today I get on the buss and there’s a young man with tattoos and a neck brace. A stop later another young man with tattoos gets on. He proceeds to talk about how he just had his neck brace removed due to being hit by a car while on his skateboard. I ask him his name he says Christian and proceeds to tell me about his accident. It turns out he was hit by a van whose driver was on the phone. This makes me realize how disconnected I have been while driving my car. We are so wrapped up in our tiny bubbles here in LA that we don’t interact with each other. I know many times that I have almost ran into someone as a result of not watching where I was going. It isn’t healthy the way we are all disconnected in these times. What happened to the sense of community and togetherness that used to prevail? Is it dead due to the Internet being our only connection with each other?

I am a certified music geek! I actually went to school for audio production. And music is my very favorite thing in the world! When I had wheels I was able to handle LA’s traffic by listening to whatever new stuff I downloaded. I now wear headphones during my travels and will post songs that make up tue soundtrack to my adventures. I think the tittle of this one is self explanatory!

Today marks the first instalment of our Daily Douchebag category. This story comes from street team member Pinkey! So pinkey was at CVS the other day and ran into this idiot. He stopped to get a soda before jumping on his next connection. He sat in line for five minuites and was starting to wonder what the holdup was. When all of a sudden the guy in front of him at the register turned to the side. Where he was paying for a soda in change. REALLY!!!! GTFOH!!!! First off even the cashier was like “you count that out I am going to help these people.” Secondly look at your gut dude, you dont need a damn soda if you have to search the dang couch cushions for it. Thirdly its peak hours homie people got places to be, you know you are wrong for holding up a line. So CONGRATULATIONS dude you get the first ever Daily Douchebag category!!!

Thanx to Pinkey for the story!!!
