Last-Second Bus-Cord Dinging

I’ve ridden the bus a lot (not by choice), so I’ve seen a lot of people and a lot of human behavior. One thing that has always bothered me about is that many people seem to wait until the last second to pull the stop-request cord. Don’t they realize that if they wait until the bus is only a couple of feet from their stop that the driver may not be able to stop in time? Don’t they realize that if they are too close, the driver may have to slam on the breaks to stop in time which could cause an accident, especially in the winter? Worse still, most of these same, stupid people actually have the nerve to get mad if the driver does miss it and they have to walk back one stop. Use your brain people!
