(n.) a temporary syndrome, during which
one exhibits the symptoms of intermittently and repetitively standing
up from the bus stop bench, walking
to the curb and occasionally
far into the street, and looking far down
the approaching roadway only to sit down
again immediately thereafter. This can lead to the more permanent condition known as Bus Stop Syndrome
which is more prevalent for those
who remain in a seated position. Those
who are particulary adept at Bus Spotting seem
to be immune from
. The syndrome
is alleviated when the awaited bus arrives, and may be accompanied by a bus jig
. Another known cure for this syndrome
is to quickly slam
a beer or another alcoholic beverage while waiting.
Jack, seated: Hey man, if you need to get up and dance around, the bathroom's behind
the bus stop, not in front of it!
Moe: No, this thing is supposed to come
by every 10 minutes and it's been about 25 since I've been here!
Jack: I think
you might have a case of Bus Anxiety. You better crack a beer and get that taken care of.
