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.

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.

My mom used to be a bus driver. Back then, the buses had a key, and a special switch that you had to push to turn it off, and if you just took out the key, it wouldn't turn off. She had the kids on the bus believing that she drove the Magic School Bus, because she could pull out the key while driving and the engine would keep running. She avoided the 'change the bus into something' questions by claiming she could only do it on field trips (who knows what she said on field trip days...).

On the busews in Victoria there are signs that say "Please leave by rear doors." My Mum told me she believed that the signs were written by a man named Rear Doors who owned all the buses in order to transport his large family around. He was telling the other passengers to "please leave" his bus.
