Can a bus fetish be cured????
« on: February 23, 2009, 08:09:23 PM »
Well, anyway, my wife claims I'm, well, errrr, jeeeeeesh, blush, only happy, when we are in the bus together?  I'm worried, can this be grounds for divorce.....

It took a while, but my she-who-must-be-obeyed got over the .. uneasiness of me spending time with the other love in my life.  As long as I'm sore, have busted knuckles and complain a bit, she seems happy.  LOL

There is no cure for the madness, women are more prone to be overcome by the insanity cause us guys are more stabile, lol  Libby just told me when she is able, I'm scheduled to be hurt lol.

It's pretty much the same here. But I'm look at as being a BUSAHOLIC. And when on the computer looking on the bus board it's call BUSPORN.

 There is no cure, but one day at a time it can be controlled!  We have busacholic meetings but I cannot tell you where they are because we are anonymous  ;D

Man I really hope there is no cure.  If there was Dallas might stop spending all his time on the bus.  It is expensive but much less than some other hobby he might come up with and this way I always know where to find him.  As long as he has this addiction I can keep him somewhat under control.

Once you are infected with bus nut fever there is no cure.  Ray, you need to find a way to infect your wife with it.  Properly handled it can really be quite contagious.

It's an affliction with no cure. Because you have already infected
many other people so it goes on. Just think.. Your handiwork will last until
the bus goes to the shredder or 10/20 or 50 years whichever happens.

Hmm.... :'( :'(

There is no cure  ;D You learn to live with it  ;D I am also convinced that it is highly contagious. People are always walking over to ask questions and gawk. Can't imagine life without a bus ;D ;D

No but I'm sure there is a 12 step program that is only slightly more expensive than the problem.

Hello my name is Dean, my wife says I have a problem. But I'm still in denial I just look at the pictures Really guys. OK I know taking all my bus mags into the bathroom and locking the door for three days is not right so I'll try BUSAHOLIC'S the twelve step program.
Step 1. look at a bus picture each day.
       2. Wave to a bus driver as they pass once a day.
       3. Stand near a running bus and breath in the exhaust fumes once a day.
       4. Always carry an extra fuel can with you so when you fill up the car with gas you can pull out
          the fuel can and pump Diesel also.
       5. Allways slow down to allow any bus that's behind you to catch up.
       6. Allways follow a bus closely so you won't lose it in traffic.
       7. When following a bus roll down your windows even if it 0% out because the fresh diesel air will
           allways make you feel warmer.
       8. Scan the buses for sale ads each day.
       9. When you see a bus waiting at Wal-mart ask if you can get on just to check it out.
      10. Ride a bus every day.
      11. Let your fingers do the walking reach out and touch a bus each day.
      12. This is the hardest step of all, go out and buy a bus of your very own. It won't cure you but then
           you won't care ether.
         
      Note about step twelve, just look how happy BK has become after buying all those new buses.

Okay okay....

>>1. look at a bus picture each day.<<
I have this place bookmarked.

>>5. Allways slow down to allow any bus that's behind you to catch up.<<
That was once a BIG mistake..see #6

>>6. Allways follow a bus closely so you won't lose it in traffic.<<
PA Turnpike..I don't like doing above 72mph..I'm allergic to speeding tickets. I guess some drivers aren't. I've tried this several times, and it seems like a game of cat N' mouse. I'm sure the other drivers thought I was nuts.  :o
Every time it happened, when I got to my exit, it felt like I needed an "Intervention". Fortunately, the police were never there. That would have been a very BAAD intervention. I probably would have tried getting out of it by saying I'm a member of the paparazzi and thought the bus was carrying a music star. ::)

So I went to rehab. I took the train... :D

>>8. Scan the buses for sale ads each day.<<
And confuse myself even more...

>>12. This is the hardest step of all, go out and buy a bus of your very own. It won't cure you but then you won't care ether.<<
Fortunately, until now, I couldn't afford to buy a bus. Not even a lowly skoolie. That is good, because my mind is so blurred, I've convinced myself that a skoolie would be cheaper to buy and convert into a nice looking and functional conversion than a coach. (Not neccessarily so, as LOGIC and actual work/cost would dictate). <Sigh!> Why do I keep reading about trips to Alaska; or want to be able to pull up to the outskirts of a city and take Mass Transit (Another BUS!!) into town to work or see the sights??

I don't care...maybe I'm hopeless. The train didn't work. Now I want to see double-decker folding articulated buses with large windows for viewing the countryside and comfortable swiveling chairs for viewing outside with coffee holders and sandwich tables with..with..with... Ohh my.. :'( :'( Help me... Am I destined to be, as Cody put it, "Bus Trash??" Will Walmart be my favorite store from now on??

>>Note about step twelve, just look how happy BK has become after buying all those new buses.<<
Well, that's cause HE actually gets to do steps 2, 3, 4 (8 He SHOULDN"T be doing anymore!), 10, and 11.
I wonder if he has EVER tried to control it or gone through "Withdrawal".
