Experienced CatTran driver speaks about orangutans, hot coffee, minor accidents, death and being stepped on in life

WILDCAT: How long have you been doing this?

CHICO: What, at the university?

WILDCAT: Yeah.

CHICO: Going on four years.

WILDCAT: So you drive around all the lazy kids on campus?

CHICO: Yeah, but they are always welcome to a ride.

WILDCAT: Well, that's nice of you.

CHICO: Yeah, well, we just provide service.

WILDCAT: Can anyone have a ride?

CHICO: As long as they are well-behaved.

WILDCAT: Can a wild pack of orangutan have a ride?

CHICO: As long as they follow UA procedures: No drinking, smoking or eating in the shuttle.

WILDCAT: That's very important.

CHICO: Oh, I think it is. Because if they have coffee, they might spill it on a passenger or on themselves.

WILDCAT: But that could be a good thing. You know that old lady sued McDonalds because she spilled their coffee on herself. She got quite a bit of money. Maybe you should let them bring coffee on the shuttle; you could make out like a bandit.

CHICO: Never, never, never.

WILDCAT: How many people have you hit with the shuttle?

CHICO: None, never an accident. I'm too cautious. I've had minor ones.

WILDCAT: So you just kinda hit someone, or did they run into your shuttle?

CHICO: No, like the door jamming, small little things like that acts of God.

WILDCAT: Once I ran my car into a wall, well actually, it ran itself into a wall. I forgot to put it in park while it was still on. That was just a little accident, right?

CHICO: Yeah, just a minor one.

WILDCAT: So, if you were to become an insect, what would you be and why?

CHICO: I'd rather be dead. They're going to step on me anyway.
