Beware this man

To get from Dubrovnik to Montenegro, we needed to grab the 10:30 bus. Unsurprisingly, the bus was an hour late. This guy jumped out to get our baggage into the van. Note: When traveling in the former Yugoslavia, a lot of these buses will charge you about a euro to check your bag. It really isn’t that big of a deal, but this guy went loco when people didn’t give him the fare quickly enough. He would throw their bags out of the trunk and wait until they give him the right amount. Ridiculous. BH handed the guy a euro in coins and he was pissed. I ended up giving him a twenty-euro, and for a while I thought he was going to just pocket the extra eighteen. While he may have been taking a couple of extra cents here and there, he did end up giving me my change. He kept shouting at EVERYONE though, and yelled at us all to hurry up even though he was the one that was an hour late. Not cool.
His anger did prove to be an asset later when we got to the Croatia-Macedonia border. Instead of waiting politely in a line that looked to be about an hour long, he burst to the front.
Near the front of the border, some of the people wouldn’t budge, but he finally wedged his way in. Every once in a while, he would hop out of the bus and freak out at the other cars even though he was definitely in the wrong. At least he got us to Kotor safely!
