I love the Gardena Bus system, and public transportation in general. But Gardena buses have a surprisingly ridiculous rule: No skateboards or boogie boards. I got denied access the first time I tried to ride and wasn’t aware of the rule. I was stuck downtown… thanks Mr I’m-just-following-the-rules-busdriver! I hid the skateboard on my back and came home to make this bag (from what was likely to be the last pair of long pants I ever own).
