Video: Bus Rider Calls Woman 'Satan' For Not Having Her Fare

The next time you complain about a journey from hell, remember this video.

A lady in Santa Monica hops on a bus but claims she has no change. The driver orders her to leave but she refuses and starts cussing him out (because that's bound to make him change his mind.)

A fellow passenger, clearly miffed at the hold-up, decides to help things along by ranting at the lady, calling her evil and likening her to the devil himself: "Get off this bus, Satan!" And just to make sure she's paying attention, she throws in, "Go to hell!" for good measure.

Not to be outdone, the cheapskate passenger returns the pleasantries with racist epithets and swear words, bellowing at her to "Shut the f**k up," before exiting the vehicle in a dignified manner.
