>This blog has really gotten people to open up to me about their own bus experiences, but so far the most disturbing story came from my friend John Scharnberg, who last night informed me of the reason he will never ride the bus again. Apparently, he would ride the bus to school when he was 8 years old. The same woman (who he described as “special, in the retarded way”) would ride the bus with him every day, and each day she would tell him how good he looked. Until one day, she got off the bus at the same stop as him, put her tongue in his mouth and “wiggled it around”. There was more to the story, but at this point I was totally grossed out and walked away. Also, he was taking a really long time to tell it.
