"Just Another Day on the 36"

The Rainier Valley Post's "Bus Bitch" describes his experience on the 36 today.

The woman, whom witnesses claim was clearly drunk or high, refused to exit, pushing the bus driver away and collapsing on the seats next to the front door. When the bus driver attempted to remove her again, she attacked him, biting his hand with the tenacity of a rabid pit bull. The bus driver then struck her several times with his fists in an effort to subdue her and protect himself.

Not long after “Bus Bitch” got there, police arrived and handcuffed the woman. An officer sought witnesses for questioning, but no one obliged. Several people on the bus spoke with the “Bitch” though— with one claiming, “This is just another day on the 36.”
