Written By Jake Dabkowski, Editor-in-Chief September 21, 2022
Something that I have observed that has become increasingly more prevalent in the past few months is passengers on public transportation being disrespectful to drivers and employees. I’ll have a few examples of different behaviors that I have observed before making a desperate plea for people to treat these employees with respect, but if you’re going to skim this article then I beg of you to take away one key point: be respectful.
