LaughingRadish: 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.

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.

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

Quantum Apostrophe: D) interstellar 3D printed generation ship?


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.

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.

styckx: 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.


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.

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

There's more room to escape...

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

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

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.
