The new bus driver that got in an argument with Mirage
When Mirage got to work, he saw the same bus that passed him when he was giving the colts a ride to school. Nearby, were several ponies that just got off the bus. As Mirage was parking his car, the bus driver got out, and looked angry.
Mirage: *Gets out of car, and walks to station*
Bus Driver Pony: *Looks at Mirage*
Mirage: Good morning. Are you a new bus driver?
Bus Driver Pony: Yeah, and I think what I just did was dumb. If I knew I was bringing ponies to the train station, I might have crashed into a building!
Mirage: I'm glad you didn't. Our railway needs passengers, and we thank you for your assistance.
Bus Driver Pony: Lies! All lies! Buses will be the future of transportation. One day, all you ponies that work on railways will lose your job, and be homeless!
Mirage: That right there is a lie. Everypony here works their hardest.
Orion: *Runs out of station* Hey, Mirage, guess what!
Orion: I was this close to getting fired, but instead I got a three week suspension.
Mirage: Oh my god, what did you do this time?
Orion: I threw somepony's luggage onto the tracks, and a train ran it over. Well, I'm gonna enjoy my suspension! *Runs away*
Bus Driver Pony: You were saying?
Mirage: Okay, he's the only one that causes mayhem around here.
Gordon: AHHH! *Kicks pony out of station* Don't ever say that word in front of me again!
Random Pony: But I just said Moby Dick was a great book!
Gordon: Moby Dick is the worst book ever!! They should censor that word from the book, and everywhere in this world! *Walks to bus* Hey, get me to the bar. I need to get my daily dose of booze.
Bus Driver Pony: Get in. *Gets in bus*
Gordon: *Gets in bus*
Bus Driver Pony: *Drives away*
After arguing with the bus driver, Mirage entered Pete's office.
Pete: Well, if that bus driver keeps giving you problems, ignore him. Or show him that his ways, and means of transportation are wrong. Whichever one comes first.
Mirage: I'd like to do the second one.
Pete: I'm sure we all would.
Mirage: Right then. What do you want me to do for work today?
Pete: Today, I want you to work with Nicole on getting a freight train down into Laramie. When you get back from that, a passenger train heading for Denver should be here. I want you to drive it.
Mirage: You got it. *Leaves office*
As Mirage was walking to the train yard to work with Nicole, he saw Hawkeye, and Stylo sitting in their usual spot when they wait for a train to take over.
Mirage: Hey, did you two hear about what happened with Gordon?
Hawkeye: No, what?
Mirage: He heard somepony talking about the book Moby Dick, and when he heard the second word of that title, he went ballistic.
Stylo: *Laughing* That's Gordon for you.
Mirage: Yeah, I know. And another thing, there's an orange, and yellow pony with a green mane that could make us run out of business. He's been badmouthing everypony here.
Hawkeye: Well, we can't allow that.
Stylo: Just give him hell Mirage.
Mirage: You know I will, but first I need to get on a freight train with Nicole. We're taking it to Laramie.
Hawkeye: Good luck.
Mirage: Thanks mate. *walks to train yard*
