I just thought I'd let you all know that the BRBD (aka steve) drives the bus because he likes to, but also because it's an income, or at least supposed to be.

BRBD is responsible for filling the gas tank with his own money. He is responsible for cleaning up all messes after a night out with the bus, making sure it's in great order for the next run (this could take several hours). he also brings his own cooler filled with beer and ice to share with the riders who didn't bring their own or run out. he drives a bunch of noisy, annoying drunks around. he CAN'T drink with the rest of us.

BRBD WORKS FOR TIPS (no hourly pay involved). When i first rode the bus, announcements were always made to tip the bus driver. I NEVER LEAVE THE BUS WITHOUT TIPPING and neither should you.

EVERYONE who steps foot on the bus should remember to tip him (and tipping at the beginning of the night would be much nicer...sometimes people spend all their money and have none left to tip at the end of the night.) As a SUGGESTED tip, I think a MINIMUM of $5.00 PER PERSON is a good start, especially compared to the cost of a drunk driving ticket. Or better yet, the entertainment on the bus is at least worth that. I can't imagine driving my own car and having as much fun as I do on the bus.

these are my thoughts that were inspired by....

I here declare a minimum tip amount..........$10.00 dollars.

Still is a very cheap price to pay for drinking and being rowdy on the way to an event. Try to to take a limo or taxi and only pay $10.00. Can't do it.

Keep rockin the bus and pay the man.

tipping him @ the beginning of the night is a much better idea ~ that way we make sure Steve gets taken care of.

BTW ~ BRBD - you need to contact Mini ~ he's got a job opportunity for you


Thanks Steve for carting our drunk a$$es around all the time - you are a gem for that!

i would like to express one more thing.

it shouldn't matter what type of bus run (birthday; bar hoping; just for the heluv it; or invitation only; lscn member or not), EVERYONE should tip.

the bus ride is free, per the owners. however, that dosen't mean the BRBD get's a salary from them. this is his job.
