  • No, bc you didn't stand up he most likely assumed you were waiting for another bus, so it's only you to blame. These bus drivers have a strict timetable to follow so just sitting there and expecting them to treat you like a special snowflake is just kinda rude in addition.

      No common sense means "basic ability to perceive, understand, and judge things, which is shared by ("common to") nearly all people and can reasonably be expected of nearly all people without any need for debate."
      Bummer you didn't bother to look it up

  • You're supposed to stand up and signal the bus to stop.
    The bus driver doesn't know if you're waiting for his/her bus or another that stops there or are just catching your breath.

    Most bus drivers will drive by if you do not at least stand at the bus stop.

  • Did the bus just go right on past you without stopping? That's messed up, though I guess he is used to passengers getting up when their bus is arriving. Either way, the bus should've stopped to check to see if you were getting on that bus or waiting for a later one.

  • In the UK, if you stay seated and don't indicate for the bus to stop, the driver will drive on (given that no one is getting off on that stop too)

    Before I knew this, I have been known to just sit there and wait for the bus to stop lol

  • If you didn't stand up and asked the bus driver to stop, then you have no reason to complain.
    He/she assumed that you didn't want to go on that bus.
    It would be wrong if you raised your hand and he/she didn't stop.

      The same bus comes to the stop there is only one bus you lol

    • 3mo

      Okay. But the bus driver won't guess that you're waiting for that bus. You could've been waiting for someone.

  • it happens... next time stand up when you see the bus coming!

  • Here the bus only will stop automatically if only 1 bus drives past this stop. Otherwise, you should show the driver your hand as a sign you want to go with him.

  • Flag it down next time or stand up for a better understanding. The driver must have thought you were waiting for another bus

      Lol well the way it works here is only a certain number because to the stop so a number 7 bus goes to the number 7 stop

    • 3mo

      Well sounds like he didn't see you or is just an asshole or forgot that it was a one line stop

  • Yes that is right, if you didn't stand up why are you complaining?

      @Meliodas_ OP Never said it was a school bus. And if that's how the your local bus company works it's not how it works in most places. Busses just drive past bus stops.

      It the locals bus and I just assumed it was the same everywhere. 😁

  • You stayed sitting when the bus pulled up then whined when it left without you.

      Ok so it slowed down, the driver did his job, he didn't see anyone standing to hail him, but he slowed down and saw you sitting there, at which point you didn't wave your hand to signal him (maybe you couldn't get up straight away but you can wave your hand), but you stay in your spot, so he drives on. He did nothing wrong.

  • Here in the UK you have to hail the bus, otherwise it won't stop.

  • It should have stopped. But if you made no signal that you wanted to board, you kinda share responsibility there.

  • You mean the bus drove past the stop without stopping or actually stopped, people were going in and coming out all the while you were contemplating your existence.

  • If he didn't stop at all, he should be fired. Whether you were there or not, bus drivers are suppose to stop at Ll designated stops. Honestly you should report him for that. Sorry you had such a scrappy start for the day.
