I don’t feel bad I just don’t throw it in the ocean.

So I'm waiting for the #6 bus yesterday downtown after 5pm, which is hellish at the best of times. The bus comes 20 minutes late, but that’s sort of beside the point.

 

So I’m waiting, and buddy comes up with two paper bags of groceries. He’s holding his bags, when one of them bursts and two chicken carcasses fall onto the sidewalk. The chicken carcasses had not been wrapped in extra plastic and leaked raw dead chicken juice in the paper bag, which soaked through the bag and caused a critical structural failure. The chicken juice compromised the structural integrity of the paper bag because – duh – paper does not perform well when saturated with moisture.

 

So now this guy is holding basically two biohazard chicken carcasses in his arms with chicken goo running down his hands and onto the sidewalk. It’s all over his arm, and pants and shoes. Really gross. He barges onto the bus, and I’m like no way am I standing next to raw chicken juice buddy on this crammed POS #6 bus. So I had to wait another 10 minutes.

 

This plastic bag ban is dumb, caused an unhealthy situation and made me miss my bus.

 

 

I feel bad for that guy.  He's stuck with what he's been allowed to carry his groceries home in, and it all went horribly wrong.  Embarrassing, costly, messy.  

 

Pathetic.

For a moment I thought you were describing the CoV council.

A transit driver doing a pre-trip inspection of their bus has just radioed dispatch to report a paper bag with wet pants in it was left on the bus.  The unknown liquid has leaked through the bag onto the floor.
