There's a reason they call it the Dirty Dog.

That's why I pay extra to take Amtrak.

Welcome to Joe's Greyhound?

This past summer I was thinking of taking greyhound cross country just for the ride and see this country of ours from a different perspective..  Then I started reading stories and... No.. I pretty much concluded Greyhound is the ex-con, escaped con, crazy persons transportation network that makes stops in shady as shiat places.

I might do Amtrak instead this summer.

they are both nice

you meet a more interesting cast of characters on the greyhound though. debonair people of wit and absolute craziness.

I dunno, I've taken Greyhound up and down the NE Corridor a bunch of times and from Boston to Montréal and back once too.  Didn't seem dirty and the travelers looked like pretty much anybody.  Nobody particularly scary, ever.

And I was born in the back seat of a Greyhound bus
Rollin' down highway forty-one


I think that explains it all...

I rode Greyhound many times years ago

/cockroaches would have been one of the less disgusting things I encountered
//trust me: you do not want to get on a Greyhound for the last leg of a 4 day NY to SF run

God that poll is retarded. Then again, Quebecor (Sun) Media tends to make Fox look professional and intelligent by comparison.

Hell, I'd rather be in an infested restaurant or nursing home any day, than an infested Greyhound.

There's more room to escape...

I took a Greyhound once. Once. I was forced to sit (apparently they routinely overbook certain routes) next to a man roughly three times the size of the largest person I had previously ever seen, who loudly complained to a friend via cellphone that he didn't have enough room to movie around, while I was being ground into a fine paste next to him. The guy in front of me was openly and flagrantly perusing multiple extreme pornographic magazines for the first half hour of the trip (most of what I saw was visible in the window's reflection, but he was doing nothing to hide it from other passengers), whereupon he disappeared into the bathroom in the rear of the bus for (literally) 45 minutes. Upon arrival at our destination, some lady called me a racial slur (for a race that I can in no way be mistaken for, mind you) when I had the audacity to file out behind the gigantic man, instead of just standing around and letting her (the seat behind me) out first. Overall, I give that trip a B-

The last greyhound trip I took the guy next to me was pointing out drug dealers and how to begin negotiations with them.  Very enlightening.

Having been in the Army, and also having had to repeatedly bus it to Canada to visit my then Girlfriend, I've spent several man-weeks of time on a greyhound bus in my life.  I've had numerous family members also ride Greyhound similar amounts.

I always made a point of sitting towards the front of the bus.  nevermind unloading first, those bus toilets reeked worse than anything imaginable, and I used to mop a barracks latrine after lights out, in a unit with a bunch of farkers that liked to piss on the floor and drop a mud monkey in the urinal on purpose.

And that's just the tame stuff.   I've seen people farking in the back rows.  people spanking the crank, chain smoking moms of several races smacking kids whose worst crime was "momma I'm hungry...", I've seen people get mugged, one guy get shanked, I've seen police drag people off the bus in cuffs..
and that's just me.

A friend of mine, a seriously hard core upstanding "god's frozen people" type rode greyhound once..  came off with crabs.  My brother's gotten head lice more than once from riding Greyhound.   One of my ex girlfriends got 'raped' on greyhound  (Funny, as I later found out that the woman was -exceedingly- promiscuous...)


TL;DR , you're better off just taking a road trip, that way you control the route, the stops, the layovers, and only have yourself to blame if you get the crotch crickets.

I heard that a cockroach can live for nine days without its head

Throw in "packed like a sardine can" and you are indeed correct about what Greyhound is like. It's like you are in warp space, except that spacetime has warped away making your journey interminable. Your seat is made of bits of cheap plastic that stick you in odd places. And I have indeed seen grandparents, parents and kids on the same bus.

Cockroaches would actually be welcome because then you know someone is cleaning up the spilled snacks.

There was a poll?

Damn, I must have my browser locked down too much. I often miss out on polls and comments and even video...and of course ads.

Remember when websites used to admit that their polls weren't scientific?

Now they don't even bother. Hey, everyone who visited our website agreed roaches were bad. Well, duh!

I'd rather have roaches crawl all over me than fleas or lice or bedbugs or mosquitoes. At least roaches are clean.

/haven't seen a roach in years
//don't miss them at all.

The photos of the supposed infestation showed exactly one roach on a seat.
Really?

Poop. I was considering taking greyhound from vegas to california in july. Not now though. I'll just rent a car instead.

Rules for riding Greyhound

Bring enough food, water, and porn to survive 4 days
Safely pack your cockroach colony in lead-lined container
Avoid eye contact, especially with the driver

Well at least it'll be easy to clean this mess

They wouldn't have had to evacuate me. I'd have been off that bus faster than you could say "roach" as soon as I saw one.

/yes, I'm scared of bugs
//especially roaches
///that roach in the picture looks large

To be fair, I assumed B.

The first time you see an elderly woman with cockroach bites in a nursing home, it makes you want to go punch people in the face.

I ridden Greyhound between LA and DC about a dozen times. You'll barely notice crying babies on an airplane after multiple 72 hour adventures on the road.
Texarkana to El Paso: 24 hours of flat and brown, except that green-lit building in Dallas.

When you see just one cockroach, there are always a lot more out of sight.

to be fair, it's a German cockroach. It was just out that early to put it's towel on the seat to 'claim' it.
