Man, TTC bus drivers must not get very good benefits or something: from my observations they certainly seem always at the ready to leave their posts (ie: the bus) at the end of their shifts. Twice now I've been sitting on a bus which has pulled into a stop (ie: nothing more than a space to the side of the busy street just big enough for a bus), at which point the bus driver has just gotten up and walked away. The strangest part? The bus was left running. It took a good five minutes before the replacement bus driver finally showed up (probably late for his unfulfilling job), during which time I'll admit I was very tempted to try and drive myself the rest of the way to school.
