This may be hard to believe, but some of us learned to read and write prior to 1961.I'm not saying it's better........
"When the word bus was new, the two plurals were in competition, but busesovertook busses in frequency in the 1930s, and today is the overwhelming choice of writers and editors. Busses was the preferred form in Merriam-Webster dictionaries until 1961."
Merriam-Webster dictionaries prefer it.
You ask your wifeOxford says that "busses" is the US pluralization.
Collins says that the plural is "buses" but as a verb, 3rd person singular is "busses."
American Heritage lists both forms as OK.
So... they're all over the place.
Just so long as they do not try to put a wrap on the ferry boats or make the wraps on the monorail permanent. Although I do not put it past the current TDO leadership.As a side note.... it seems the busses are being wrapped to go with the Skyliner opening. While I would personally prefer a more character free design on both, if the idea is to change over the busses to match the skyliner that makes way more sense then just a few random character busses roaming around.
I saw some of the gondolas testing and realized the design was similar and it was one of those “ah-ha” moments.
Cynical is they key word. I’ve been thinking about why this is so troubling, and I believe a major reason is this: Disney has historically thought highly of its guests, and *sincerely* sought to offer them quality, with the understanding that such quality would be appreciated (even if not always consciously). These new developments come across as cynically looking down upon guests (“throw more characters at them, they’ll eat it up”)... but that’s not what made Disney successful, and indeed, not doing things like that is precisely what set Disney apart. It’s another case of focusing on short-term gains to the detriment of long-term holistic impacts.Chapek's soulless stuffed shirt is trying it's hardest to cynically shoehorn in characters in every possible spot he can.
Somewhere in Minneapolis? Can't see the bus route number to know for sure.I'm not a huge fan of the wraps, but they aren't terrible. I would've liked to see a design that was understated and sublime rather than "in your face".
However, they certainly are better than the wraps this terrible grocery store has been putting on local buses and trains:
