Yesterday, a Greyhound bus departing from Atlantic City, NJ and headed to New York City had to evacuate after a frightening number of roaches appeared. Seriously, there were roaches everywhere—the seats, the windows, the floors...everywhere. A frightened passenger described the traumatizing experience to NBC New York, saying "All of a sudden the roaches came out of nowhere, they were on the floor, they were falling form the ceiling."
So imagine that you board a bus for a calming ride and 15 minutes later, there are roaches falling on you from above. That's the stuff nightmares are made of. Anyway, the bus driver pulled over and all 48 passengers exited the bus in the manner that you'd probably expect, considering the situation.
Greyhound issued a statement saying "Once the driver became aware of the situation, the driver followed procedures by pulling the bus over to a safe location and notifying our dispatch office. A second bus was immediately sent to pick up those passengers and continue their travel into New York. Currently, our team is investigating the situation and working to determine its cause."
Another bus arrived, and of course passengers were given refunds. Remember March 15, 2013 as the day the roaches won. Those little surviving bastards.
