  • Hey! You! Get off-a my cloud!

So today's the last day of classes before easter break, and I'm going home for the weekend tomorrow - got some family obligations to take care of, and I miss my dog. Anyway, I have to go into town and pick some easter stuff up beforehand, and I don't want to drive, so I'm at the bus stop, waiting for the bus.

Now, one thing you've got to understand about Transperth (ie. the bus company around here) is that the timetables - they're kind of more of a general guide than any kind of adhered-to schedule sort of thing. So when the bus was about 5 minutes late, I wasn't too concerned. At least, not at first.

Suddenly, I see a big green bus coming round the corner and through the roundabout up the road - the number on the front is right - it's the bus I'm waiting for. But this thing is taking the roundabout at about 70 kms - that's a damned impressive sight BTW - a full sized bus taking a roundabout that fast - wow.

Anyway, the bus comes screaming up the road and pulls into the bus stop with the screech and well known smell of brakes applied just that little bit too much. Then the door hisses open and I get a look inside.

Now, I take this bus fairly often, but the driver's always changing, but there are a few constants one learns to expect. However, none of those are "Black Cape, Mask, Rubber torso, utility belt". And you also dont tend to see middle aged men in Transperth uniforms lying in a small but slowly growing pool of blood next to the drivers seat. Yep, you guessed it. Batman was driving my bus.

"Tickets please."

Now, I was a little surprised by all this, as you can imagine, so I tried to start up a bit of a dialogue.

"Batman, dude, What the **** man! Did you just beat that guy up? He's ****ing bleeding and ****!"
"He was going to make the bus late! He was waiting for these old women at the last stop - slowest pair of *****es I've seen since Poison Ivy accidentally gave that sloth syrum to her minions instead of the GCPD."
"The bus is still late though."
"Ah yes," he says, with this sort of half smile that could have meant nearly anything. I guess it's hard to be visually emotive with a massive rubber mask covering the top half of your head. "But he would have made it later!"
"Still - I think the response is a bit out of proportion, don't you? I'm pretty sure he needs to go to hospital or something."

At this point, I think he got kind of pissed, because he gets up out of the seat, jumps off the bus and just sort of walks off mumbling about how **** like this never happens in Gotham. So I was kind of stuck, with a driverless bus and no other way to pick up my easter stuff.

****ing Batman.

LOL Now that's screwed, all I got was badmouthed by a couple of teenagers for 'running up behind them' on the crossing when the lights had changed and the traffic hard started moving.

They were an advert for their own intellect, so I chose to ignore them.

You are either the most delusional person on the planet or I applaud you for starting a conversation with Batman over the battered and bleeding body of his foe ;)

If it was taking the roundabout at 70 KMS the bus would tip and the Gs could kill the people on the bus.  (I don't know much about the effects of Gs and when they come into effects.)

you'd think Batman would be more careful with a bus full of people than to whip it around a roundabout at that speed. he's supposed to be protecting people. you know.

:lol:

Batman in Perth!? Wouldn't it be a bit warm?
Wait Perth is cold ain't it? bah.

Still, are you serious? :wtf:
I'm doubting it due to the dialogue...

Funny Story either way. :p

btw. 70km's an hour would not kill people going around a round-about.
Depending on what type of round-about, it's quite possible to do that without tipping.

yes, but not smart. buses usually don't handle as well as the batmobile.

70Kph is like 40Mph, it's impressive, for a bus on a roundabout, and bloody scary, but not fatal :)

Was it pre-Crisis Batman, current Batman or DKR Batman, because they're pretty different Batmans and DKR Batman is scary yet so sexy.
lol wtf
