Conklin OTW But Delayed

Anybody know this guy? Some guy from New York that was headed to Eureka ran off the bus in Santa Rosa. I'm sure he'll get here eventually. Probably heading to Humboldt Herald's.

So, is that supposed to be funny?

Well, if you didn't think it was funny, I guess not. I maintain this blog only for your entertainment.

I don't get the joke either. Are you saying Heraldo harbors tweakers? I thought Heraldo was supposed to be a pot smoker and meth was more Humbug's thing. And what's your drug of preference Fred? Conspiracy theories?

You two take things too seriously.

I did not take your post seriously, I simply asked if you were trying to be funny.

Being a dedicated Greyhound rider, I can tell you that this is not out of the ordinary. What is bizarre is 1. The bus driver not immediately kicking this dude off and 2. Someone calling the cops on this dude. Under normal circumstances, the bus driver would just kick this guy off in the middle of nowhere and, with Jerri Curl steady drippin, in a heavy Texas accent, yell "that'll learn ya to be quiet."

Seriously, kicked off and forgotten about is what has happened to every drunk person I've ever seen on a Greyhound bus. I guess the northbound line is a bit more civilized than the just picked up a bunch of ex-cons from Pelican Bay southbound line.

Excons just released from Pelican Bay Are the most quiet riders on Greyhound. I would attribute this to culture shock.

Stopping for a rest breakat Standish Hickey, I went to the cooler for soft drink and they all backed off giving me more than enough room even though they got there first.

Could have sworn they were afraid of me-a 30 something 5'7" 128 lb female. I wished they had a halfway house to merge back rather than cold turkey, it seemed very uncomfortable for them.

I'd like to know why this guy is headed to Eureka? Just what we need another homeless tweeker!!

Fred, I am so laughing my back side off.

You made a funny and only the Heraldo defenders won't recognize it. I actually laugh at them, but they are truly humorless.

Keep it up Fred.....and Carson, please don't get your panties in such a bunch. What do you lose your sense of humor when you become a far, far, far left apologist?

Anonymous sounds like a Nigerian scammer.

Uh, maybe ex-cons are calm in front of girls and in the daytime.

One time I was on the night bus with some crazy ex-cons. They kept making me play spades across the isle and the bus driver was about to have our heads.

Anyway, I convinced this other dude who seemed like a sucker to buy them a beer when we were smoking a backwoods at the rest stop. Anyway, these fools shared one friggin sapporo and got all rambunctious talking about how they were about to go straight back to pimpin when they got to the town and how the first girl they saw was gonna roll with them no matter whose girl it was.

So the bus driver kicked these fools out halfway between Mendo and Santa Rosa in the snow.

I dunno what my point is. The greyhound bus is hella fun? Oh yea, some tweaker getting kiced off the bus talking a bunch of madness is not rare. Weird that they were going to Eureka instead of the other way though. Usually the crazy people are going south.
