    Now this was stupid, what was he thinking he was going to get, tokens??? I thought on these buses, the coin portion is locked and cannot be opened until the bus returns to the terminal and a supervisor open the money box…I’m glad this driver is going to be OK, but this clown needs to spend sometime cooling his heels at my expense in the state’s custody…
