He was coming outbound 54 on 3rd avenue. He is in the middle lane
trying to get around a 4. But each time the light turns green and the
4 won't let him in. So at the next light he stays well behind the
stop line. Having mastered the timing of the lights he starts his
acceleration BEFORE the light actually turns green. HE BLOWS BY THE
FOUR, who is starting from a dead stop.
So guess what, at his next stop up comes the road supervisor to his
window. "We need you to drive safely through here."
"Man, don't even start up with me today" he replies. It was one of
the really hot days. "When was the last time you drove a bus." He
asked the road supervisor.
"Well about ten years ago."
"Well things have changed out here since you were driving and that 4
wouldn't let me in, and I was supposed to have an air-conditioned
bus, so don't even start up with me today".
The road supervisor backed off.
And what is the moral of the story.
ROAD SUPERVISORS NEED TO YIELD TO THE JUDGEMENT OF THE VETERAN
DRIVERS AND LET US DO OUR JOBS.
We know what we are doing.
