A very slightly built bus driver named Bob was running his route one day when a big hulk of a guy got on.
The man was six feet-eight, built like a wrestler and had arms that hung down to the ground. He glared at the diminutive driver and said, “Big John doesn’t pay!” and sat down at the back. The very frightened bus driver was upset, but decided it would not be smart to argue with Big John.
It became a daily event. Big John would get on, say “Big John doesn’t pay!” and sit in the back. And each day, Bob got a little more upset about being taken advantage of.
Finally Bob could stand it no longer. He signed up for body building courses, plus karate and judo. By the end of the summer, he had become quite strong. What’s more, he felt really good about himself.
So on a Monday morning, when Big John once again got on the bus and said, “Big John doesn’t pay!” Bob stood up, glared back at the passenger and screamed, “And why not?”
With a surprised look on his face, Big John replied, “Big John has a bus pass.”.
