If you're on a bus that costs less than $3.00 for a 9-hour trip across country, there's a very good chance the bus will break down. Sometimes the breakdown isn't even really a breakdown, for example we recently had a gear shifter fall off. No joke. The driver pulled over, everybody got off and pushed the bus to a mechanic. We walked around and waited until the bus was fixed.
During this particular breakdown, I peed behind an abandoned bus in full view of two truck drivers who didn't even pretend not to look. And then I threw my tissue on the ground.
