It would have made for a great episode of Seinfeld.
To lay this out....from New Jersey....there's this Transit bus....Number 113. It's an express bus which is supposed to make this 23 mile run, and end up in New York City down by the Port Authority Bus Terminal. It stops a couple of times.
So it's making this run....which is to take forty-five minutes.
On Thursday, the run took almost three hours. The best that anyone can say is that the driver got disorientated, and just started making wrong turns...then correcting herself....making more wrong turns....and correcting again.
Passengers at some point got upset, and vented. You can imagine New Jersey residents and New York residents....all hyped up. They've been this way a hundred times in their life, and know the route by heart. The driver? She really didn't want their help.
The New Jersey Transit folks? Well....they just say they are investigating the episode, and aren't sure of nothing.
You can imagine Jerry and George in one seat....discussing the better route to correct the situation. You could have taken such-and-such street over to west 16th, but it'd take you six miles out of the way, but it's better timing because of traffic. Back and forth, Jerry and George would have argued this.
Elaine? She would have been hyping up....no toilets on board. She's pushing her limit. Aggravated....she would have dumped onto the lady driver, and got a Jersey insult or two. At some point, she would have contemplated jumping off the bus.
Kramer? He would have started a game show with other passengers on-board, convincing them this was all a fake trip and they had a chance to win $10,000 if they could just keep getting the right answer.
