That's me laying down in front of your bus in protest lmao2.gif

Police were called in after a pedestrian lay down in front of a bus after the driver honked his horn at him.

Greater Manchester Police say the 50-year-old staged a one-man protest at Shudehill bus station after the driver beeped at him for walking slowly across the road.

The man obviously didn’t take too kindly to being prompted to get across the road at a quicker pace.

So he laid on the road in front of the vehicle.

Police were called and officers moved the man.

A police spokesman said: “Police were called at 11.55am to a 50-year-old man lying down on the road in Shudehill. Passers-by said the driver had beeped at the man who was walking slowly across the road.

“The man then laid down in front of the bus.”

Police said the man then walked off.

It is not understood how long the man laid in the street.

Video goodness

They should have ticketed him for impeding traffic. Just because his old ass had all day to get there doesn't mean everyone does. What about the people that might lose their jobs or miss court because he decided it was a good time to be a dick?

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

I sort of do the same thing, but while driving...or not driving. When I'm at a stop light in the car some times it takes me more than one second to go, during the microseconds people will beep at me to get moving, because of their impatience and rudeness I feel they should be taught a life's lesson. So, I sit there and smile at them in my side mirror for an eternity, I'd say about 10 seconds.

Well I do that. I especially like to slow down when Mr. Speedracerwannabe comes flying up behind me and drives right on my ass.

But those a WAY different than laying on the street and holding up traffic long enough to piss everyone off and then for the police to be called and show up. That's just being a dick.

The bus driver was being dick too. Maybe the guy had a medical condition or on medication that causes drowsiness or confusion. What if he was mentally ill?

The same could be said for the two of us because we are holding others up too.

This world is in too much of a rush to go nowhere.
