Tell me about it. Are you really surprised no one stepped in? Don't you remember a few years back that man who was stabbed to death, beheaded and cannibalized on a Greyhound because the passengers ran to the front of the bus and exited watched him hold up the head of murdered man, instead of trying to stop the madman?
I think besides staying out of it, they figured I "had this" because it was around 2 am and everyone was trying to sleep off the ride from hell despite his inappropriate, desperate babbling. Everything he said, I had a response to. Eventually how I got him to shut his mouth was throwing the Christianity he claimed he to practice back in his face, regarding his vile behavior and what would Jesus do? etc. Also helped my cause when I lost all patience and my temper made an appearance about 20 minutes from my stop because the bus driver decided to pull off to a truck stop on an unscheduled half an hour break. I was ready to get off the bus and start walking in the ice, not even exaggerating. When the bus driver eventually reboarded I clapped obnoxiously and yelled; "yay!"
asked to exchange numbers as I anxiously strained my eyesight out the window for recognizable scenery when the bus got back on track again because; "how are we supposed to get in contact with each other again?!"
I told him in life, things that are meant to be, work themselves out. lol He said he thought Jesus sent me to him because he had really gotten off track but that I was right, he should be living every aspect of his life righteously.
Then he asked me how to meet a nice girl.
I told him pretty much to do the opposite of everything he tried with me.
Ohhhhh! Then there is this creepy guy who works at the bar we sometimes go to, he only hits on me when my husband steps away for a minute. "I think everytime I see you, you are prettier" type of crap. Someone had bought us a round that night, but we weren't ready for them yet so we had a poker chip given to us. He came over, starts playing with my poker chip (while husband is away, naturally) sets it down and says:
"Is this enough to win you?"
"Not even close."
