Sara:  So have you ever ridden the bus?

Sara:  Have you seen the freaks that are on the bus?

Steph:  There are some stanky freaks on the bus.

Sara:  There are some really weird people on the bus.

Steph:  Ya know, I used to work up at the hospital.

Sara:  Mmmhmm.

Steph:  And nothing against hospital patients or veterans, but some of those people are the biggest freaks.

Sara:  That’s true. They really are. And I’ve been on the bus before with people who are like screaming and yelling for no reason.

Steph:  Oh yeah! Oh. Lots of times, they talk about god.

Sara:  There are a lotta god freaks. Have you seen that guy that stands outside Pioneer Courthouse Square?

Steph:  Yeah. And he yells at people about how they’re going to hell.

Sara:  Yeah. Exactly. And he’s got his sign that says, “God is good,” but yet he’s telling people they’re going to hell.

Steph:  He’s terrible.

Sara:  He’s kind of a freak.

Steph:  Yeah. He’s definitely a freak!

There are weird people everywhere. In every country in the world, there are crazy people and people who don’t act like everyone else. In America, we have a lot too. Sometimes, it’s scary when there’s someone who is not acting normally in a public place, like on the bus. What do you do when this happens? I usually ignore the person. I try not to pay attention to them and just zone them out. If they started acting really weird, then I would report them to the bus driver or call 911 if it was really bad.
