Ahh the entertainment value of bus stops! I had never rode the bus until I moved here and I had no idea it could be so entertaining! I once saw a guy without shoes or socks, covered in blood with a huge gash bleeding on his head, walking through the rain...asking for money, yikes! I have also seen a man in too small women's jeans and a little girls tank top doing a strip tease in the aisle....its never boring.
Today I was waiting for my bus and a hispanic man came up to me and started talking to me in Spanish. He was completely oblivious to my lack of understanding, so I just let him continue. At one point he must have asked me a question because he stopped talking and looked at me, obviously waiting for a response. He then asked again (in English!) if I had a boyfriend. I said, nope but I do have a girlfriend. This was obviously a surprise to him and he responded with a five minute rant on the "evils of gay people!" Awesome. Just take the rejection and leave buddy. I didn't understand most of his rant, but what I did get out of it was that gay people cause tornadoes...he actually said that! I just sat and stared ahead of me praying for the bus to come and save me. I need to learn Spanish, I had some good arguments ready for this guy!
