Not sure how active you were when "Todd" was active.

Caught some of it but I unplugged for a while & missed most of it. We've had our share of trolls but yes, Todd is legendary.

I agree but for different reasons. I took the greyhound to orientation once and never again. It wasn't because of the people on the bus though. It took about 17 hours to complete a 9 hour drive. I prefer to drive and be able to stop where I please. To each their own though.

Maybe because these new hires do not think they entitled to the red carpet from the beginning.

Not expecting a red carpet, just treated like a professional and not some scum.

Oh really? It must have been your opening post, talking of “dregs of society” and “white trash” that I misunderstood, then? But you’re supposed to be looked at as a professional? You are a joke, though. Done with this one...

Tbh i would avoid a greyhoud ride like my life depended on it. Im way too tall with legs too long to fold onto one of those seats. I took a train ride once across the country and was ready to end it all 3 hours in. I dont fly for the same reason id rather drive. Now if there was no choice then of course suck it up butter cup eat some bananas to avoid leg cramps and off we go. If this makes me elitist oh well, pass the grey poupon.

Lots of airlines offer extra leg room for a fee. When I flew, i used Allegiant Air. It was less than $100. Greyhound was over $200. Since they reimburse for the price of the bus, I made money on it.

Noob, you are not elitist because you avoid the bus for logical reasons. But the OP is avoiding the bus for elitist reasons not in line with logic. What happens when he judges the shipping and receiving personnel as being beneath his dignity?

Security will escort him off their property & a picture of him will be posted on the guard shack's wall of shame.
