In what’s maybe the strangest Fortnite news of the week, one player has set up a Change.org petition to allow the chance to thank the bus driver for their services before jumping.
Kody Keddie, who started the petition, writes: “Since I was just a boy I have always loved jumping out of the battle bus, but all this time I have felt something was missing.
“And that thing is the ability to thank the driver of the battle bus, he or she is truly a great person and they provide us a great service, I think it is time we can truly appreciate thair [sic] service, don’t you agree?”
It seems a considerable portion of the Fornite community actually do agree with Kody, as the petition’s really, really close to hitting target.
At the time of writing, the petition is just 500 signatures away from its goal of 1500.
And naturally, the page has gotten a lot of very amusing comments from politeness-enthusiasts.
“I cannot sleep at night knowing that a bus driver is forced to drive that battle bus 24/7 without a single ‘thank you.’ We need this feature,” one petitioner commented.
Another added: “Amazing. Wonderful cause. I think the bus drivers of Fortnite deserve more respect.”
Hopefully Epic Games will be taking note of this incredibly important issue – Fortnite fans are standing up for the rights of bus drivers everywhere!
Well…it’s always nice to be nice?
In other Fortnite news, a data miner has uncovered evidence in the game files of a mysterious new event.
Apparently called the ‘Day of Hoe Event,’ it’s expected to coincide with the game’s one year anniversary, though Epic Games have yet to comment on the leak of the event.
We can’t believe Fortnite hasn’t even turned one yet – does anyone remember a time before this game?
We definitely don’t!
