The Greyhound Bus
Posted On: 2022-04-21
Cast: Shopper with a BIG package higher than his head, Pedestrian, People who are Cars, and One Bus
Setting: Busy Intersection
Cars and trucks whiz by and don't stop for pedestrians.
Shopper: Excuse me, Sir, could you tell me when there's nothing coming down the street so that I may cross?
Pedestrian: Sure. (Pauses until cars stop whizzing by. The bus begins coming down the street.) Now you can cross. There's only a dog coming. (He begins to cross; the bus hits him.)
New Setting: Hospital Ward
Pedestrian: (To shopper in bed) Gee, I'm really sorry about what happened to you.
Shopper: It's all right. These things happen once in a while. But tell me, why did you say there was a dog coming down the street when it was really a bus?
Pedestrian: Well, it was a Greyhound!
