HRT Can't Make Things Simple Enough For Some People

Coming home this afternoon meant coming through Hampton Roads Transit's (HRT) Military Circle Direct Transfer Center.

A young woman started to step onto the bus. She asked the driver "Are you going to Cedar Grove?" As gently as he could, he let her know that to get to Cedar Grove she needed the bus with the sign reading "CEDAR GROVE". (DOH!) Better yet, the driver needed to repeat that to her.

If I hadn't been exhausted, I would have rolled over laughing.

oh don't u know, not reading is the latest trend. u know like having prolonged cell phone conversations in places of business just cuz u have a bluetooth. hey i gotta bright idea, why don't they transmit all the signs and important messages through they're cell phones. Maybe that way they don't have to ask the obvious.
