my battery died this morning, and i had to take a bus down to the store to get a new one. no big deal, the bus is usually an adventure in itself. but when i went to get on another bus to go home, the bus driver wouldn't let me on. 'no batteries on the bus.' i was told. so, i tired another bus in a few minutes, almost had him, but it was a no go.
apparently, it's just peaches to get on a bus reeking of your own filth, or visibly intoxicated. in fact, if you are a homeless man, you can ride the bus all day for one fare, just cruising around, soaking up the free heat and conversation. as long as you don't have a car battery.
so, after a $16 cab ride and a long wait in the cold, lesson learned.

they can do that because of the explosion possibility... they have the same law pretty much everywhere...

There arent to many bags that are gonna hold a battery. Atleast as far as i know.[HR][/HR]​
a paper grocery bag would be fine. just hold the bag from the bottom, like there was a 12 pack in there.

Shoulda bought a cheap backpack for 15 and they would have thought you were a good schoolboy then. Then you could reuse the backpack later to take the bus when getting beer!

Sorry to hear about your badluck.
On a different note.
I moved here from Boston. But I hate Columbus. Sucks big time.
No culture here. No place to go relax.
Can't wait till get back to Boston.

My battery died once so I rode my bike 3 miles to get a new one. You should've seen some of the looks I got.
