Okay, so this has nothing to do with Disney’s part in the bus systems, but has anyone else other than me had an experience on a bus do to the other visitors on the bus that just angered you so bad!!! :pinch:
Okay, so this past vacation, in August-September we stayed at ASMo, and mostly the people that stayed at this resort were younger adults, young families, and then there were a lot of football teams, cheerleading teams, etc there as well. All very capable of standing on a bus.
Well, this one day it just POURED. Like the sky opened up and we were all swimming! Literally. So we waiting for the bus and it comes. And there was a lot of people in front of us, but enough where some of us could sit and hold the children, and the rest would stand-- not a problem. But see the problem was that some of us were in the line ahead of the rest. So at the tail end it was my brother Jeff, my best friend Amanda, myself, my nieces Riley and Madison (3 and 18months.) And then my father. Well by the time we got on the bus there were no more seats. So normally we can hold on to the kids on our hips, but this time the floor was SOAKED and slippery and so were the poles and my brother and dad both had strollers and bags, so I decided to inform Amanda that I thought the safest thing for the kids was to pass them back to my family members who were sitting.
Well as were all struggling trying to get the kids safely to a sit the bus begins. And I’m like oh no, this is going to be difficult, but just realllly focus on the baby. So I made Amanda switch with me and give me Madison, the younger one, because she is the one that relies more on you actually holding her so she feels heavier and I’m sorta better at that whole hold them even if it hurts and don’t drop them thing.
So the wholeeee bus ride to HS we’re struggling not to slip or fall or drop the children. And this whole time theres an ENTIRE teenage football team sitting around us. I mean BIG STRONG 17-18 year old boys just sitting there watching us, two little 16-17 year old girls hold these 20-30 lb children. Slipping and sliding and juggling them. And not ONE of them offered to let us sit down! NOT ONE! And there coach was sitting right there too! I don’t BELIEVE he didn’t make one of those boys get up! I don’t believe it.
Standing and keeping your balance on one of those buses is bad enough, but with children! It’s sooo hard. Especially little children. It could have been SO dangerous if the bus took a hard turn and my hand slipped off the pole. I mean the least the could have done was let ONE of us sit down with both babies.
And it was COMPLETELY obvious we were struggling. COMPLETELY.
I just couldn’t believe that. I have given my seat up SOOOO many times to people, whether they have children or not. As a young person that completely capable of standing up on a bus in place of an older person or someone with children its just the right thing to do! I couldn’t believe that those boys could be so selfish. Right to our faces.
Needless to say the entire ride I was SO angry! Ohh, the angrist I’ve ever been in Disney ever! And the thing that makes me so mad is that the boy in front of me KNEW he wasn’t doing the right thing. Because after my friend was like omg, my arm hurts so bad I’m afraid I’m going to drop her, I caught eye contact with one of the boys and he looked away sooo fast.
Also, there was this man in front of us next to the boy and he leaned over to his wife and was like, honey I’m going to get up and let one of these girls sit down with the kids, he whispered it to her, and she said back to him “If you get up for one of those girls I swear to god you’ll never hear the end of it…” And I was just baffled. I was like OMG, I don’t believe that GROWN woman who has a child just said that. How immature and rude. Right to our faces practically.
So now I’m soo angry. But that guy shouldn’t have had to get up, those boys should have been gentleman and offered it! So as I get off the bus I am realllllly stewing in it. I’m sitting at the front bus exit waiting… tapping my foot… baby on hip… just this stern angry scorning face on. I was DETERMINED to make one of these boys feel like the jerks that they are. And I am NOT a confrontial person or a dramatic person AT ALL. haha. :laugh:
So as the get off the bus I’m sitting there with the rest of my family retelling the story, because honestly I just REALLY couldn’t understand that type of selfishness or being able to be that, well RUDE. So as the team walked by I made sure to say loud and clear for that boy to hear, “And I just CANT believe that not one of those teenage boys on that football team offered us the courtesy of having one of theirs seats!” And the boys infront of us look back, and I continued “…especially after the saw how hard it was for us to stay steady and Amanda said she was having trouble keeping Riley held.” And the boy looked away. And he STILL didn’t care!
Man that just ticked me off. And not because I couldn’t sit. It has nothing to do with that. But it was for the safety of those children. THEYRE BABIES! They can’t stand. They can’t hold themselves up. They don’t have the strength or even the understanding that they need to do that. And the reason I got so mad is because I’m so close to them and I watch them so watch I kinda feel like a second mother, and it was sort of like a mother protecting their children. I felt like they hurt me because I felt like they were hurting my nieces, if that makes sense?
BUT anyways, that reallllly ruinied most of my morning! It was ridicilous! :pinch:
Does anyway else have any stories such as that?
