Woman Given Lifetime Bus Pass as 103rd birthday Gift
"A frequent bus rider in Florida was given a lifetime bus pass in celebration of her 103rd birthday.
Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority shared a photo of Barbara Rygiel receiving the special bus pass from CEO Brad Miller and Board Chair Darden Rice on Tuesday.
Rygiel takes the bus to church about four times a week and said the lifetime bus pass would help her avoid the fees that tend to pile up over time."
At first glance this seems to be the kind of heartwarming story that we need in this time when so much tragic news dominates the airways and the Internet.
This sweet old lady takes the bus four times a week to church - that`s an outrage. Isn`t there a Good Samaritan in her congregation willing to provide her transportation to God`s house?
Most cities have subsidized bus service for seniors and the disabled community, certainly a city in Florida that`s infested with old folks should have such a free service!
A limousine service should step in and provide the old woman with free rides for life, what the hell she`s 103-freaking-years-old, she`s going to croak any day.
If I live to be a hundred I hope my city rewards me with free weed for life; I wouldn`t want to take the chance of dying in a damn bus.
