This wouldn't happen if we had rapid transit

A punk teenager gets on the bus.

Driver: Hey, you're short fifteen cents here.
Punk: I'm a student.
Driver: Let's see your student card.
Punk: I don't have it here, but I'm a student, man!
Driver: I'm not moving until you pay the full fare!
Punk: I'm not getting off the ****ing bus.
Driver: Well I'm not moving!

[pause]
[pause]
[pause]

Man from the back of the bus: (walks deliberately to the front of the bus)
Driver: No, I want HER to pay!
Punk: Don't do it, dude, he's just on a ****ing power trip!
Man: (throws fifteen cents in) Go. (walks back to his seat)

Bus pulls away.
