I'm turning into a bus stop blogger

This entry sort of reminds me of one I wrote in June about things I've learned during my internship (found here). However, this one's a collection of things I've noticed while riding public transportation into the city 3 days a week.

Not unlike before my internship, I still find people watching really entertaining while waiting for the bus.

Case in point: the other day, I saw a woman going around 55 miles an hour... while applying mascara. Really?! I don't understand the appeal of wearing make-up (same deal for high-heeled shoes. Not a fan. Future husband, wherever you are, if you're reading this, you've been warned).

Amusing license plates? Also something fun to look for while waiting for the bus. Kinda like that LOL CAT one from a few days ago. "But everyone loves LOLcats. They're cute, and they can't spell, because they're cats." Big Bang Theory, you are just so darn quotable.

When a certain lady on the bus starts having a coughing fit, she takes a sip of water from what looks like a cleaned out McCormick spice container. This concerns me. A lot.

I still don't know if the mini billboard that says "Follow us on Facebook" is referring to the karate school or the beer distributor the bus passes every day. They share a sign. It's amusingly misleading... At least to me.

Another sign: "New and Used Tires." I will be the first to admit that I only have a basic knowledge of a car and its workings, but I'm pretty sure that used tires don't sound like a good idea.

And lastly... There will always be something magical to me about going through the tunnel and seeing a panorama of the city. It's absolutely breath-taking every time. (If you have no idea what I'm talking about, check out the video here).

I have a little less than a month left at my internship... Hopefully there will be more things to see, laugh at, and enjoy. We'll see what happens.


  1. I also love people watching while at the bus stop! Although, watching the people ON the bus is something crazy too. That's hilarious about the "follow us on facebook" sign. They need to get their marketing act together!!

  2. I try to avoid people when at the bus stop. .eye contact, anyway, lol. But maybe i should look around more! I notice things on the train all the time.

    I'd be hella disturbed if I saw someone drink water out of a spice jar. .

  3. @Pickyourfuture - People watching is just way too much fun. I'm going to miss it when my internship is over.

    @Carrymel - It's funny what you notice, you'd be surprised. And believe me, it was super disturbing to see.
