City The Mad Driver

The doors open, I walk up the steps, pay the fare, and see a surgical mask on the bus driver’s face. The number of the bus: 44; the day: July 22; the time: around 10 pm; the location: the UD; the question in my head: Why is the driver wearing a surgical mask? Is there a smelly person on the bus? My nose says no. Has the bird flu finally arrived? My information says no. Is he simply crazy? My reason screams yes! But why is a crazy person driving the bus? Two possibilities: one, a madman killed the real driver and hijacked the bus; two, Metro is now hiring crazy people to drive its buses? Because no good can come out of either possibility, I jump off the bus at the next stop.
