As a child (from the U.S.) I went on a trip to Europe with my family. While in Italy, I was disappointed that I never got to ride on one of the the tiny buses that I was expecting them to have there. Later I figured out how I got misled. I had heard someone say that Italian Greyhounds were much smaller than familiar Greyhounds. But what I figured out only later was that they were talking about dog breeds, not buses!
When I was young I would see my sister get on the school bus, and come home on it. So naturally I thought that school took place on school busses. What ensured my belief was when she told my mom she did her homework on the bus. I thought kids rode on school busses the entire day until it came back and the teacher taught them during the ride.
I used to believe that bus drivers always gave you chocolate when you bought your ticket.My mum always had chocs in her bag when we went into town, i suppose to bribe me to behave.So whenever we got on the bus and i sat down promptly in my seat,i got a sweet, which i assumed the driver gave her.I WAS VERY UPSET the first time i was old enough to get the bus alone and did not get my sweet!!
I was in london on holiday when I saw a guy run for a bus.
I said to my mum "Look, someone stole the busdrivers bus!"
The man then jumped on the back of it at the last second and I said "Ah it's okay, he caught it."
When I started kindergarten I went with my mom to set up the school bus that would pick me up. When I was told I was riding bus #9 (out of buses 1-9) I was heart broken because I thought since I was 5 years old I should ride bus #5.
My older brother wanted to keep me from sticking my head out of the citybus window, so he told me that the driver had a button that would electronically close the window and chop my head off. I was 4 years old, and believed this for several years.
We weren't allowed to sit on the top deck of buses when we were little - my mum said that was where people went to change their clothes and they didn't want kids watching them. I was always confused when I looked up at the windows from the outside and everyone just looked as though they were sitting down normally and fully clothed!
I used to be afraid to ride those flat-front school buses, because I thought that the bus driver was horrible because he'd crashed into a wall and smashed in the front.
Before I started school, I used to watch the school busses drive by our house. I saw both the regular busses and the short ones. I was so excited about starting school because I thought I would get to ride the cute short bus. I assumed that the short busses were for younger kids and the regular ones were for older kids. I was heart-broken when I found out the truth.
I used to believe when we got onto the bus that the bus driver was personally giving us a lift to where we wanted to go. I remember asking my mum why all the other people aren't cross that the bus is dropping us off first when they where already on!
When I was little, I was terrified to ride the school bus. I cried hard whenever someone would try and make me. Why? Because (for some odd reason) I believed that once the door shut behind me, everyone on the bus (kids included) would turn into monsters and turn me into one too. This lasted until first grade. I told my sister and she laughed for about ten minutes.
I used to think buses were the same as the school coach!
One time when I went downtown with my mom, I saw the wires above the street that the streetcars hooked on to.. When I asked my mom what it was, she said that streetcars went on it, so for years I thought that streetcars went above the road on top of the wires instead of just being attached.. and I would always watch for one, but i never knew why they were never there!! I was shocked when I found out that street cars stayed on the ground..
Kiedy byłam małym rozkosznym dzieckiem to myślałam ze ludzie którzy wchodzą do autobusy przenoszą się w czasie. po prostu myślałam ze autobus jest istnym wechikułem czasu
When I was about five or so, I used to think a bus driver was the best job in the world. I thought that they got to keep their bus, and could take it wherever they pleased, whenever they pleased. I was set on becoming a bus driver when I grew up, until I learned the horrible truth.
i thought it was a law that bus drivers had to wave to each other when they passed
Whenever I'd ride on a bus as a kid, and the bus driver would stop and open the door near railroad tracks (to listen for oncoming trains), I always thought that s/he was opening the door to let any homeless people near the tracks onto the bus.
Not that I'd ever *seen* homeless people near the train tracks. I'd only heard about them in stories. But that's why I imagined the bus driver was stopped.
When I was in kindergarted, I rode the bus to school. There was a sort of hump at the front of the bus....naturally I assumed there was a bathroom under it in case anyone had an emergency!
Whenever I was upstairs on a bus, I didn't believe that it would fit under the bridge so I used to duck.
I used to think that public buses were "free" like school buses.
