In 1173, after Bussik's bridge crew lost two-thirds of its members in a bridge run, he tried to convince Gaz that Bridge Three was too weak to work on stone-gathering detail. Kaladin suggested that Bridge Four be assigned to stone-gathering duty instead; Gaz agreed with him, and gave Bussik and his crew the job of cleaning pots. Rock correctly predicted that being volunteered for stone-gathering would annoy the other members of Bridge Four, but Kaladin had the ulterior motive of simultaneously gathering knobweed sap.
After Bridge Four (which had previously been the worst-performing bridge crew) suddenly gained the ability to make bridge runs with minimal losses, Bussik was among the bridgemen that became angry towards Kaladin. Kaladin realized that Bridge Four's improvement left the other bridge crews without anyone to look down on.
