"At Greyhound we leave the driving to you!"

Just reminds me why I think long distance buses are the worst form of transport available to man (in any country):

 

Passengers aboard a Greyhound bus traveling from Memphis to St. Louis got more than the trip they bargained for Friday, after they were abandoned by their bus driver, twice.

Pretty typical for St Louis. I've had city bus drivers leave the bus to run into a convenience store for a drink while sitting at a minor bus stop.

I don't see anything wrong with this. It's pretty typical for Houston... I've experienced it many times. A lot of agencies don't schedule adequate time for drivers to get breaks, and most bus routes have a lot of recovery time built into the schedule. If it can be done without getting more than 5-6 minutes behind schedule (since you're an idiot if you're planning out a route based on the assumption of EXACT SCHEDULE ADHERENCE from a bus), I say let 'em have their snacks.
