If you complain when you "HAVE" to stay in a hotel on a trip. . . . You might be a busnut!

If you scream "BUS!!" when you see one coming down the road. . . You might be a busnut!

If your photo album for your bus is bigger than the one for your family. . .  You might be a busnut!

... you climb in your car and notice the steering wheel is much smaller than you remember.

... your friend mentions he had his personal watercraft in the bay last weekend, and you think "Yeah, it'd probably fit in one of 'em."

... last month's cell phone bill shows regular calls from your house to you late at night. Turns out they were just your wife calling you in the bus to tell you she's going to bed and was wishing you "Good night".

... Someone says something about a "riveting discussion" and you are disappointed to learn that it has nothing to do with the little metal fasteners.

... After checking the MAK board posts for the fourth time today, you realize you never brought the mail in from the mailbox yesterday.

If you're going to be dumb, you gotta be tough.

LOL this has happened.

You might be a busnut if... You drive 20 miles out of your way for a chance to see a bus on the expressway.

You might be a busnut if... Your kids go out for the night and when they get home they tell you they saw two MCI and a vanhool.

You might be a busnut if...When just a plain old charter bus makes your heart skip a beat with thoughts of what you could do with her.

You might be a busnut if:
You have already posted more than 500 posts on the MAC board and 1500 or more posts on the BNO board.
You previously had a bus but have no plans to obtain another.
You load up the car and take off on a 500 mile trip to talk to a bunch of nuts getting together in South Carolina, stay in a motel, eat at restaurants but still greatly enjoy the latest get together.

You might be a BusNut if ... on a winter day in the northeast on a 2-lane road, you get stuck behind a tour bus, but don't mind.  Instead, you open your windows hoping to smell the diesel exhaust, sit back, relax and follow the bus ... enveous ... wishing you were driving.

... if your kids become "popular" because their Dad picked them up from school in a Greyhound Bus!

... if you have your family trained to say, "See that bus?" whenever they see a bus on the highway...

... if it becomes a contest to see who can say it first...

... if you get "the look" from your family because you beat them to it whenever you see a bus in the background of a tv commercial or program.

... you offend your neighbor by referring to his new RV as a "sticks and staples".

...If you would rather spend Thanksgiving at a busnut rally than around relatives & family.

...When shoping for anything, if you consider how it is gonna fit in the bus before deciding to purchase.

...If your kids want to go on a school field trip & don't know the destination, all they are interested in is the bus ride.

...Your kid gets up early so he can ride the school bus longer.

...If your co-workers are taking pictures of buses they see on their travels for you.

...If you are late for church because you had to 'drive by' a bus someone told you about.

...If your co-workers actually want to see the Timmonsville rally pictures.

...If your friends expect a bus update everytime they see you.

...If you have gotten 'the look' so often that you no longer notice.

You might be a busnut

You might be a BusNut if ... you're traveling in your bus "with friends or family" and someone in "that" group says, "There's a nice Bus..." (pointing to a sticks & staples fiberglass unit -- clearly clueless).  You know your conditioning has paid off when you needn't say a word ... your wife and two kids replies, "...That AINT no Bus!!" 

Mind you ... we as a family do give "some" allowances to newbies traveling with us.  They're afforded 3 false alerts, after which they're politely removed from the bus on their 4th (in a safe location of course).  :D  Kidding.

If ...

- you name bus parts when asked what you'd like for holiday or birthday gifts.

- you slow down to intentionally get stopped at traffic lights when there's an older coach stopped there so you can check it out.

- you roll down your car window and try to get your friends to recognize a bus engine by its sound.

- you pull up next to a high-end S&S on the interstate and look down (literally) on them.

- you hate SUV's 'cause they're too big but think it's cool to sit up higher than just about anything on the road.

- you think about putting a bumper sticker that says "Mine's Bigger" on the bus.

- you successfully back the bus into your 150' long 11' wide driveway (nervous as hell), get out, and tell your friends "Nothing to it!"

- when taking your bus out on your first bus drive, you get really sad when you return home.

- you don't mind spending more on diesel for one trip than you do for an entire month's worth of electricity for your house.

- your friends ask how the bus is coming along instead of your house remodelling when they see you.

Ain't that one the truth!!

Here's another...

If you saved some of your bus seats and you use them as lounge chairs in your shop ... you might be a BusNut.

If you actually don't mind (rather "like") that interior intercity tour bus smell ... you might be a BusNut.  <= yeah, I am sick!  :P

If you are behind on your conversion, have a stock pile of "things for your bus" to install but can't find enough hours in a day to install them ... YET you still find the need to purchase MORE "things" because they're a good deal ... you might be a BusNut.  And you can never B*tch about your wife being out spending money!! :D  Well you can, because yours is a deal, and "YOU NEED IT".  While hers is a frivilous expense.  Ha!

Hey baby, you're not reading this ... are you?

You might be a busnut if your favorite shirt from L.L. Bean or Lands End is monogrammed with "MCI" rather than your own initials!
