I had a pretty boring job in an office trying to do ad sales for a local magazine. Even though I just sat at a desk all day I had to dress sharp. One day I was going to work and saw the bus pull in a little early. Knowing the next one wouldn't be along for quite a while, I started running and damn near made it in through the bus doors when they closed. The bus started driving off. Thing was, my tie was stuck in the door, so I had to run as fast as I could while banging on the door or else the dang thing would have hung me. After half a block, the driver must have heard me, because he stopped the bus and opened the door. Son of a bitch only opened it long enough to let me go, then closed them again and drove off!
