A story I thought I'd share.

Posted February 18th, 2013 at 12:10 PM by vaporeon7

This happened to my uncle's friend.

He was in Sydney one afternoon and he needed to hail a bus. As you do, he stuck his arm out to get one's attention. A bus approached. The bus kept going, hit and badly broke his arm.

The end.

    Wow, that's awful. Did anyone get the number plate of the bus to contact the company about the driver? I mean, the friend was almost definitely either at the wrong bus stop or the bus was full, but that's really no excuse for... idek the word for it. It's just bad.

    ...not that it wouldn't happen over here though. Ruthless, those bus drivers.

    :O Omg that's horrible. He should definitely call the company and see if he can sue or something.

    Well, on one hand, he shouldn't have stuck out his arm…

    And on the other, the bus driver should have slowed down or something…

    idk

    Uh... droomph, have you ever hailed a bus? Sticking out your arm is exactly what you're meant to do. |:

    And things like this are why buses will only stop in marked bus stop areas where I live. No sign, no stop! Hailing is considered too unsafe for that to be practiced here today.
