Re: Fare Beaters..what's the driver SUPPOSED To do?

Most folks understand when I don't say anything, or if they see me hit F5, they know it's the "do what you want" gesture; but then you'll have one or two idiots throughout the day that wants to stand over you asking "so, is it okay or not?", and I give them a serious look telling (but quietly), "why are you asking me if it's okay to ride? you know you're supposed to pay the fare, and I'm not allowed to waive people onto the bus, so do what you want." This way you're letting the farebeater know it's not your job to waive people through if you don't pay, but also not embarrassing them at the same time. And I think many ops go wrong at this stage when you say something back enough for the folks behind him and folks in the front seats to hear.
