Last week on the 831 there was a man who was coughing a lot. Fortunately he was on his way to medical care. In order to make the most of his bus experience, this man asked the bus driver which stop was closest to his medical care. The bus driver, understandably, asked him "Where is your medical care?" to which he responded, in between coughs:

"5th North and University, I mean
"7th North and University, I mean
"7th North and State!"

The bus driver paused, and I knew he was thinking what I was thinking: "This would probably be a bad time to mention that there is no 7th North and State." For those of you who are wondering, State Street in Provo doesn't start until 1230 North. Up until that point, it's called 500 West. I think we can safely assume, as you, dear reader, already have, that he was trying to go to 700 North 500 West. Therefore, the bus driver, as part of the friendly service that UTA operators provide, calmly advised him to get off at 500 North 500 West. As this is 5 blocks after I get off, I can only hope this man made it to his doctor.
