It’s crazy how many people I’ve met just by working at Shuttles. What’s even crazier, though, is that I’ve only met about 20% of the drivers. Some don’t like to be social; they just want to work their hours and move on, but I don’t think that’s any fun at all. I love going into the office and chill with whoever is in there. Everything is seriously so laid back. I got pulled off my shift today for a bit in case they needed to switch out my bus and this is what happened after I sat around for 30 minutes (about 5pm):
Dispatcher: Okay, Lisa, you can go back on-line whenever you feel like it.
Me: Whenever I feel like it?
Dispatcher: Yep. Whenever.
Me: So… when do I go off-line to fuel?
Dispatcher: Should be 6:30 since you’re CNG.
Me: Oh okay. So can I go back on-line at 6:30? Haha
Dispatcher: Well… you know how busy Regents gets…
Me: Aw yeah, I know. I guess I’ll go back.
Dispatcher: I’m kidding haha You don’t have to go!
And all of this went on while one of my supervisors was there haha He’s so chill. This is the first job I’ve had that actually makes me want to work more hours.
