On the KX Near Redwood City

In by Chris on November 22, 2010 at 2:38 pm

A man comes onto the KX, a white man with white hair, sunglasses and a tan. He says, “I don’t have change,” showing off the twenties in his wallet. The bus driver – who could be Latino or Southeast Asian, I’m not really sure – shrugs and reopens the door. The man exits the bus calmly, but as the impersonal door shuts, he says loudly, “Well thanks a lot. Thank you. Asshole.” I’ve been sitting up front the whole time, so I’ve seen that most of the people on this bus that speaks mostly Spanish pay only the few quarters they have.
