(Newser) – Talk about nasty: A bus full of Greyhound travelers suddenly found roaches dropping from the ceiling and scurrying up their clothes yesterday, CNN reports. "There's like a thousand roaches," said a passenger on the ill-fated trip. "And when I say infested, I mean infested. People were in the aisles literally brushing roaches off of them." When panicked passengers told the driver about 15 minutes after leaving Atlantic City, he pulled over and everyone got off, ABC 7 reports.

Greyhound brought in another bus to complete the trip to New York City, and everyone was granted a full refund, according to company rep. "We are investigating how they got there—in bags or from the bus," she said. Luckily none of the roaches seemed to hitch a ride on the second bus to Manhattan.

There's more to fear than roaches when you ride a Greyhound Bus. I had to ride one for 300 miles to get home after my transmission fell out of my car driving home from vacation in Tennessee. I was sitting across from a hobo who was blowing his nose on his fingers and wiping it on his pants. The first stop we made, three cops got on the bus and removed another guy in handcuffs. He looked like a serial killer. Never again.

Brings new meaning to the term Roach Coach. I am sure in the third world this wouldn't even make to the news they call it in transit food service.

sounds like a curse from those old Lawrence of Arabia era movies..."I curse you, may a thousand roaches infest your greyhound *spits on ground makes strange hand sign* FOREVER"..
