Irony is. . . .

. . . . epitomized by my TANK bus driver this morning.

The TANK buses typically stay in the right-hand lane on the interstate. I'm honestly not sure if that's a state or federal law, or just the Transit Authority's policy, but it doesn't really matter. This particular driver has a habit of straddling the line between the travel lane and the merge/exit lane, presumably to keep cars from trying to "jump the line".

Well, he decides he wants to jump the line because traffic is backed up. So, he moves over into the merge lane and floors it. He's flying past the stop-and-go traffic up until we reach the exit ramp, at which point he puts on his blinker to try and get back into the travel lane. He then mutters under his breath, complaining that no one will let him merge.

Wash, rinse, repeat several times on this one trip alone. On one occasion, I heard him mutter "See how you like it", as he blocked the exit ramp lane so no one could go around him.

Needless to say, I was very happy to get OFF the bus this morning.
