LOL Metro is such a trash bin.

Once in London, there were a group of thugs who got on a bus without paying. The driver was very professional. He turned off the engine and parked. He opened the doors and crossed his hands. He called the cops. People went nuts on the thugs and said "get out or pay." See people, violence isn't necessary.
