Multitasking a plus of the bus

On my way back from the Phinney neighborhood, I took the opportunity to sketch a fellow bus commuter who didn’t mind the unusual interruption.
David was very friendly but preferred not to give his last name. Instead, he said I could call him “Bulldog.” He works as a software developer at Amazon and has been taking bus 5 since 2005. He said buses in Seattle are fantastic compared to what he was used to in New Orleans, where it could take him two hours to arrive at his destination due to unreliable timetables.
David said it makes no sense to use gas and sit in traffic when you can do things on the bus. In a car all you can do is drive, while on the bus you can read or do research on your computer or talk on the phone. If you are doing all those things while driving, “you can be dangerous,” he said.
It’s interesting that David was telling me that just yesterday, since tougher fines for people using handheld phones while driving take effect today.
That reminds me to stay away from my iPhone while I drive home from my park and ride!
