Re: Bus rider demands French greeting. Dec. 10, Metro

 




Why should bus drivers be obligated to greet every passenger, regardless of language? I don’t think it’s even conceivable for a bus driver to greet every passenger, nor would I expect it.

 




If a bus driver was courteous enough to greet you at seven in the morning after having already shuttled around 100 other riders, I’d be appreciative instead of complaining that she or he said “Good morning,” instead of “Salut.” She or he could have just as easily said nothing.
