At first glance, I wondered how Austin could imply that the bus driver was arrogant.

It didn't occur to me at first that the driver, presuming that he "knew" the passengers didn't have a right to be on the bus before actually trying to understand their explanation was actually being very arrogant.

On the one hand, arrogance seems like it might be a great hindrance to one's growth of knowledge since less arrogant people might be inclined to withhold information and criticism. On the other hand, arrogance might gain one access to people and experiences that a less arrogant person might miss out on entirely.
