    Wonder if he has ever thought that he is disturbing the passengers by not shutting up?

    Although I can understand why he has to cover so many things that would just seem like common courtesy.. I bet he sees a lot of bullpoo.

    This is amazing. My gf chooses not to drive and rides public transit like a grand master level 9000 goddess, and she will LOVE this lol. I already emailed her the link. This is hilarious. There are so many jerks on buses...

    I once had to take a greyhound from Seattle to Houston. 5 day trip. Barely slept a wink because of people on their cell phones.

    The smells were interesting too.

    Someone give them man a medal because he`s a modern day hero.

    The policy is fine, telling folks is fine, but talking about caring about your customers while talking to them as though they are retarded 9 year olds is not needed. He could have said the rules and consequences in a tactful way and certainly without repeating them 5 times.

    Bus driver needs to stfu and drive. Or get smacked across the lips. Phones ring. People take calls. Lemme call the whaambulance for you if this bothers you. Bus driver is a piece of shxt. I`ll never take a greyhound after watching this. I`ll never put up with this type of bullshxt from a bus driver. Do your fxcking job and don`t ever talk to your customers like that.

    That was a script to Saint Hood! We`ve all been there and it sucks when you pay out of pocket and Sandra and Kerry talk about Rob`s penis for 45 minutes, and giggle and scream and whatever...

    Rob and Tony drink their under-cover gin-n-juice and talk out loud how they gonna bust paul`s drating scull open nex times they see em and..OH drat MAN! DUDE! I GOTTA A CALL FROM KELLY! BITCH IS ON A GREYHOUND TOO MOFU!...Now that`s my girl with golf balls and garden hoses and little white dusts around her noses.

    That bus driver`s self proclaimed 30 something years of service must be real. I tip my hat and my beer in his direction!

    We use to provide Greyhound service from the hotel where I work. I can see where this is totally necessary judging from the riders I met there. Talk about the ignorant unwashed masses. It`s sad that so many people live without any kind of dignity whatsoever.

    If you don`t want to hear my typical conversational volume half of a phone conversation then quit eavesdropping. Plain and simple. You can`t complain about the conversation one seat over. And just because you can only hear one side of mine, even though you want to nose in on the whole thing and it just gets your panties in a wad that you can`t, get the F over it you creepy busy body. Worry about your own life. Go find some busy intersection down town and just walk around listening and panty wadding or whatever floats your goat but don`t start with me. Go listen to the subway smellies talk to themselves and try to figure out the conversation, because that`s all you have to do on this earth. Be retarded and get...wait...this was greyhound? Who cares what happens on that stinky stage coach?

    "...Greyhound passengers." I have worked in a position where passengers were catered to and I do understand where he`s coming from. I agree with what he says. Still, he should also remember that the very people he is talking to are also, "...Greyhound passengers". If these are all corporation rules, that`s all he has to say. If they`re personal peeves, then he needs to get support from his supervisor.

    I ride the bus to & from work, rather than drive, & I have seen people doing the most remarkable bullcr*p on the bus. Apart from the sex stories (too many to relate here) I have seen a dude make a f*cking HAM SANDWICH on the bus. A woman talking on her cell phone about an abortion she had JUST had! I can go on, but I`m sure you get the picture. I wish this bus driver was my regular bus driver--it would be a much more peaceful--if boring--ride.

    I`d rather listen to somebody`s cell phone conversation than being lectured to for 3 minutes. Give me a break about the rules buddy, just drive the bus and cut the presentation down to about 1 minute.

    You can see from the window shot that this is the NJ Turnpike. This schedule to DC from NYC stops in Newark, NJ. It would APPEAR to me that this driver has just left Newark and is now laying down the law because there were loud passengers from NYC to Newark. I drive Greyhound myself and give a quick announcement when I start the trip. will often have passengers complain to me about other passengers (loud cellphones, headphones, smoking, having sex, etc).. So I have to make a longer, formal announcement when leaving the first stop.. Then just have the offending passenger removed after that, and they can`t say they weren`t warned. Usually a detailed warning is enough. Having the State Police board the bus and remove a passenger is a major inconvenience to the other passengers that have to make connections down the road.

    Grouchy? Seemed pretty calm to me. Just a weathered driver delivering a passive aggressive message of the written rules. I think he took an appropriate approach.

    A little long, but more power to this chauffeur. These things should be understood by 8 year olds.

    This is only necessary because people have no regard for others, no self control or manners in 2012. Everyone is the center of the universe.

    All he`s doing is asking the people be respectful and show some manners.
    I work in customer service, and every time someone comes to the counter talking on their cell, I just want to bash their ******* teeth out with it. They`re too ******* stupid to even comprehend that they`re being incredibly rude. Remember people, someday I might contract a terminal illness and it`ll play out a little like this.Enloy :)

    As cell phones became more popular any manners associate with their use have been lost. It used to be bad manners to use them at the table. Now it appears that people in restaurants accept this. Even using them in a public toilet now seems to be accepted.
