- When Big Bill and Little Bill get on the bus to go to work, they're standing on the left side of the street, and board the bus on that side. But buses in the US have the entrance doors on the right side of the vehicle, so the bus should have either been headed the other direction down the street, or they should have been on the right side of the road.
