I drive bus in Western Washington and I find this drivers actions reprehensible. If the three young people in question weren´t being graphic, who cares what they are talking about. I work for the public and part of my responsiblity is to ensure that my passengers get from their point A to their point B. I have no right to be offended. If conversations turn graphic or are laced with profanity then I will say something. I also happen to be gay and have offered any number of people the option of leaving the bus on their own, voluntarily, or, waiting for the police to arrive to assist them for making anti-gay comments while driving through Capitol Hill in Seattle. That becomes a safety issue for me because now, I´m watching this person in my mirror more because I don´t know what they are likely to do, to myself or a passenger. As for the their comments violating the STA code of conduct, dude, you are seriously off base. These three young people appear to have been discussing normal things and during a lull in the normal noise on the bus, one of them attempted to use humor to quell and unpleasantness. Get over yourself jkreaper.
