Funny thing happened on my way in to work the other day.

There is a newspaper machine outside the front door and I stopped to get a paper. I put in my fifty cents and opened the door. Before I could reach in and get a paper, a fellow bus driver reached in and took one! I said "Well, thanks a lot for making me an accomplice to your crime." I carried on and made a big deal out of it saying "Now I have to go to church..."

We both got inside to the drivers room and prepared to get to our buses. She went out into the bus bays and I was still in checking detours and checking my watch and getting schedules and all the other stuff you have to do to be prepared for the day.

After a few minutes, the other driver came back into the drivers room looking angry. She looked around and then said "Alright. Who took my newspaper? I put it right here on the counter and now it's gone. Who took my newspaper??" I couldn't help but smile. I guess it was OK for her to steal it, but she was pretty pissed off that someone would steal it from her. She finally wandered in my direction and I just looked at her and said "Now, THAT is funny!"
