I take the #7 bus to work in downtown Jerusalem every day. On my first day of work a funny conversation transpired with the old man sitting next to me. BUSTED, the chronicles of funny/memorable things that happen to me on the bus to work, was born.

Stuck in traffic right outside a bakery. Baker is taking flatbreads out of the stone oven with a wooden paddle.
Bus driver opens the door and shouts at a passing boy:
"Kid! Kid! HEY, KID!
Get me one of those."
Baker puts a flatbread into a bag and hands it to the boy, who brings it over to the bus and hands it to the driver, Driver gives the boy a coin, which the boy brings back to the baker.
