If I have decided to take the bus to work, without fail, a bus will cross Bute on Davie while I am still on Bute, somewhere between Comox and Davie. It does not matter if I run to Davie or walk, the bus will cross before I can reach there.

If I have decided to walk to work, the bus and I will reach Davie & Bute at a mutually agreeable time. I then generally glare good-naturedly at the bus and continue on down Bute to Pacific.
