The following comes to us via Lisa, in reply to “Bill To Ban B.O….Fails.” I think you will agree that it’s a pretty clear-cut case of when someone should be barred from riding public transit.
From The Northern Light Police Report, Whatcom County, WA (some of the best reading in newspapers these days BTW)
August 28: A Whatcom Transit driver had to call police to intercede with an angry customer at a downtown bus stop. The customer was denied boarding because he was carrying a smelly, large plastic bag leaking fluid. He took offense at this, argued with the driver and then stood in the street to block the bus. The man explained to arriving officers that the bag contained fresh crab, and the leaking material was just seawater and crab juice. He was advised of the bus driver’s rights and responsibilities, and that blocking a vehicle constituted criminal disorderly conduct. Ultimately, the crabber decided to find alternative transportation and the driver departed on his seafood free bus route.
Mister Crabs is clearly at fault, here. Crab juice and seawater dripping all over the interior of the bus? That would REEK, long after Mr. Crabs was gone.
