Ever been at a bus stop standing there clear as day when the bus just drives right by you? Well that happened last week, and i ran after it and banged on the door as it turned the corner after not stopping at the bus stop. I banged really hard to get the drivers attention, as I do when they fuck up and don't stop at the marked bus stop, and the window in the door cracked just like this. The driver then stopped briefly and looked at me, then drove off.
I'm sort of confused. Usually the driver stops the bus when there is an accident and files an incident report. I guess this one didn't because he was behind schedule and had nowhere to pull over. It could have been he was distracted by the car crash scene across the street and didn't notice I was standing at the bus stop right in front of his face. There is a camera outside the bus by the door that points back away from it, so it likely recorded me running towards the bus, but not breaking the door.
Do you think they passed out a memo to bus drivers with my picture on it and forwarded it to police. Does anyone even give a fuck. I don't think I'd be at fault for anything except a fine for the window because if they look at the video will see that the bus driver failed to do his job, and I reacted accordingly, and it was an accident.
I can get where I need to on a bike or with other transit services. How long do you think I should wait before taking this bus again?

I need a bike, to ride 30km (18 miles) a day. I was looking for a fixed gear, as I heard that it's quick as a city bike, but where I live, i can't find one, or it's over priced.
So I've came to a decision to build one, but I have a small budget, around 300 usd. What should I know when I build one, and what's the cheapest way to build one?
Best bike for £100

While the British weather would suggest the contrary, summer is here and I need a bike, but I don't have much to spend on one. I understand that due to the nature of this question, it is quite opportunistic. I'm prepared to get my hands dirty with fixing things, and I have a fair amount of (pretty low quality) components I can cannibalise off some un-used family bikes in the shed.
So if you had £100 to spend on a bike, what would you do?
