  • Back when I was still in university,

  • I didn't have the money to live in downtown Toronto and close to the campus, so the only choice

  • I had was to commute two hours from home to attend school,

  • so almost every day for four years my commute consisted of:

  • Walking to the bus stop from my house which took about 10 to 15 minutes,

  • Riding the bus to square one mall, where I had to transfer to another bus that took me to the train station,

  • Riding the train to union station in downtown Toronto, and then from there

  • I could either spend three dollars to take the subway that stops pretty much at my campus or,

  • Walk the rest which took about 25 minutes, but for a broke university student, you know you gonna walk.

  • Viewer: DANG DOM!

  • YOU MUST HAVE BEEN SO BORED DURING THE RIDE!

  • Actually! I tried my best to be unconscious from most of the Commute, because being an

  • Archi-TORTURE student who has to spend four hours of their day traveling you know I might be using that time to catch up on sleep!

  • Which wasn't always the best thing to do since I ended up missing my stop a few times and having to walk back...

  • Making me even more tired, and then by the time I get home I'd have no energy to finish my homework,

  • So then I pass out and wake up with the sun shining rays of disappointment at my face.

  • There was one time when I had to take the Go train in the morning to catch an 8 a.m. class,

  • Huh, I slept at like 3 a.m. the night or morning of because of a project,

  • So I was pretty dead and wanted to savor all the sleep I can get on the 30-minute ride.

  • Now union station is the supposed last stop on the route, okay? So one of three things happened upon arriving:

  • One, I wake up by the time or before we arrive! Cool!

  • Two, the strangers around me are willing to wake me up knowing I probably don't want to stay in the train and

  • Probably have somewhere to be! Cool! And then what happened that day,

  • Number Three!

  • No one wakes me up. I remain unconscious...

  • Uncool! (Damn Straight)

  • Obviously, not their fault you know that's

  • That's just need failing at life... I don't know how long I was out

  • Out? Ouuut?

  • No, no, we don't say OOT

  • OUT

  • I'm saying it right! Out!

  • Yeah Out... But by the time I woke up the train was moving again. Not back in the direction where I live,

  • But past union station towards through who knows where! So I panicked... (Good Meme)

  • I didn't know what to do, there was no one around me,

  • I wasn't in immediate danger, but I needed to get the hell out of there,

  • So I hit the emergency button, train stops, doors open, and a worker who runs to my cart, "Whoa! Whoa!

  • what, what, what, happened?"

  • (Fart noise) Uh... I-I uh fell asleep... (Rip Domics)

  • Get out of here!

  • Okay sorry...

  • Commuting Via public transit can be

  • inconvenient

  • Enough as it is, but it doesn't help when bus drivers can be so savage and just not give a F*** if you don't make it

  • On time! Like okay, I get it,

  • They gotta stick to a schedule they they have guidelines to follow yeah,

  • But if the schedule says that the bus is arriving at 1:40 p.m., I'd say

  • It's safe to assume a five minute window before and after for the bus to arrive giving good weather and accounting for some traffic,

  • But if I'm walking towards my bus stop, okay, like I see it in the distance

  • And I see that a bus is already there at 1:30 p.m.. I shouldn't be going... "Eh, Is that my bus?

  • please let that not be my bus. That's gotta be like the 1:20 bus running late, right?

  • okay, that that's probably my bus

  • Is it worth sprinting for?

  • All right, we running boys! And there it goes!

  • MOTHERFU**A!, and then I'm forced to wait for the next one which is sometimes only another 10 to 15 minutes and sometimes another 10 to

  • 15 centuries. I mentioned good weather as a contributing factor earlier

  • I live in the Toronto area where our winters can really be problematic for the roads... One time!

  • I had to wait for the go bus at the station because trains only run during rush hours and

  • That particular day was like a day or two after a blizzard so roads were pretty bad

  • But I still had to get to school! Because you can't be a little BITCH! And skip class one each semester cost like Eight Grand!

  • So I'm at my stop waiting in the shed, negative 15 degrees Celsius outside..

  • Bus is supposed to come at 11:05 a.m.. It was 11:10 AM

  • All right, yeah, it's cool. Roads are pretty bad I get it

  • 11:25 AM

  • Okay, oh, yeah, okay? Yeah. Yeah, there was probably some sort of accident on the road. Yeah...

  • But the bus should still be on its way

  • 11:40 AM can't feel my toes. Maybe I should have worn thicker socks

  • 11:55 AM, I regret my life choices. I probably should have stayed home today

  • 12:10 PM

  • Bus still hasn't arrived by that time enough people have gathered and we're probably worth

  • Maybe like four or five cycles worth of people... I overheard others discussing

  • What was wrong some called the helpline and reported that there were some major issues with buses breaking down and whatnot and that they will

  • Be sending other buses ASAP, but could take another 20 to 30 minutes

  • Alright! Time to weed out the weak from the rest of the herd! Let's wait it out! at this point

  • I was way past late for my class anyway, but I had too much pride to give up so I sucked it up

  • We're already committed let's go. I lost a sense of feel in most of my body anyway. What's 30 more minutes?

  • 12:25 PM The bus turns into the station. There's maybe 200 of us waiting the bus is pulling up! And...

  • It stops at the back of the line...

  • Why would you do that?? There was a moment of hesitation when we the people at the front of line were like...

  • "No way that this bus driver. Is that dumb...

  • right?" And then he opened the doors...

  • I pretty much got trampled, because everyone rushed to the back to get on the bus

  • I was honestly too tired to even fight for it

  • I mean after the cluster F*** of people managed to fit in the bus the driver told the rest of us that more are coming in

  • Like five minutes so okay. Yeah, I guess it wasn't too bad...

  • Except the next bus did the same damn thing

  • Oh! Baby!

  • What have we got here? Hey? That looks like a loot crate box. That's exactly what it is!

  • But what is it? What, what?
