Dickson College smart asses on the bus

1337Hax0r 2 May 2012 43

I had the misfortune to once again encounter the rude, abusive, offensive and smart ass behaviour of Dickson College students who catch the 4:30pm Deanes bus to Queanbeyan. On numerous occasions I have had to put up with their offensive and abusive language.

Today, finally fed up with it I asked “Could you please stop swearing?” To which a blonde haired girl about 16-17 years of age gave me an idiot grin and said “It’s a public bus.” I pointed out the rules on the bus which state that swearing is not permitted.

During the rest of the trip the students continued to swear, and made smart ass comments about swearing. They reffered to me several times, making rude and abusive comments. In addition, they made repeated racist comments, repeating “If you don’t like our country then get the hell out.”

What can one do though? I would have loved to plant my fist deep within their skull, but that’s kind of illegal, and well, just sinking to their level. I have written to the college about the issue.

Drivers can’t even throw them off anymore if the last incident is anything to go by. The morally outraged would form a parent posse.

So all you had to do was make a 2 minute phone call to the school? It must have taken you longer to write this post.

Obviously not, because they’re still being anti-social little smart arses. And I had to make 3 calls to the school because the first person said some one else dealt with the issue.

As a former student from Dickson College I feel a bit disapointed in the way these students are acting. I would suggest to you to let deans bus know about the situation and contact the school. I was on the 39 action bus last term and there were quite a few LHS students on the bus causing trouble as the public had reported it so the next day there was an action bus superviser on the bus who had a really good chat to the students even if they werent the ones causing trouble.

The school has emailed me back and advised they have the situation in hand. Some one needs to tell that to the kids on the bus who still have the situation out of hand.

Unfortunately that behaviour isn’t limited to school kids on buses. We took the Action bus from Debacle to the Brumbies game last night and to be honest my expectations of punter behaviour were pretty low. The group of morons up the back who thought they were real funny and tough managed to shatter even my low expectations. I felt sorry for the family sitting nearby (youngest probably a 9 year old girl) who had to put up with the arrogance and constant swearing. I think I’d rather brave the Bruce Stadium car park next time than see that sort of crap.

Haha! That made me LOL. : )

Is it just me, or do others see some dissonance in an article where a self styled ‘1337Hax0r’ takes exception at some swearing? 1337Hax0r5 are not what they used to be.

I hate to be the thread pedant, but should it not be ‘smart arse’ ?

I do believe that the OP was attempting humour by using oxymoron.
(ass = donkey, or someone who is not too bright).
E.g. “These Dickson College students are making an ass of themselves.”

PBO, your suggestion is interesting. Can you write one when you are sober or not stoned next time.

Man, it would have been awesome to write that stoned. Gimme 45 mins to go out to the carpark to think up a better response.

E-mailing a link to this story to the school with a heading “Look what a sh!tty reputation your school is getting!” would be a smart move.

I have not yet had a response from the high school. Maybe they could not be bothered. No need to call Deane’s, their bus driver was doing his best. The kids just regularly ignore the driver. The drivers only have so much authority, and can’t overstep it. The kids know that so they push boundaries.

Calling Deanes isn’t about whether the driver is doing his best or not, it’s about bringing up the issue with the company themselves. As you say, the driver only has so much authority, but the company has a lot more authority, and once they have a complaint from a member of the public they may decide to take action.

They could decide to put a company rep onto the bus to see for themselves what’s going on, and to have a word with the kids if necessary. They could decide that the driver is allowed to refuse the kids onto the bus. They have many more options available than the driver himself, but not if you don’t let them know about it.

Judgemental?

Good warning to people of what they can expect when they catch a Deanes Bus.

When I was at school, the school itself would have taken strong action, but these days, the scum have all the rights and the rest of us, and the school, seem to have none.

hate to say it, but filming them with a phone and hoisting it on the ‘net would probably be the most effective measure. And it would make you feel better!

Mix up some silver nitrate solution and carry it with you in a drink bottle on the bus. When the kids go mental, splash them liberally…
