The Buses in Japan
Nac with schoolchildren. Japan 2008.
The buses in Japan run on time. Here, not as reliable. I hear people complain about the buses in America all the time. Always late, always gross.
But in Japan when a bus pulls over to make a stop, cars wait, change lanes. Drivers inherently think, "That bus is on a schedule. I am not to get in its way." Here? Here out of resentment for the little public transportation we have people seem to purposely cut buses off, impatiently swerve around them.
Uptown you cater to a million jerks.
Uptown you're messengers and mailroom clerks.
