Transfering among MTA buses (NYC transit)

There's one big limitation not described in the MTA's website about bus-to-bus transfers: you can't transfer into the same bus line. Why would someone want to? How about a quick stop in the store that's on the way home? (e.g. Whole Foods - Houston Street for the M21 bus.)

This is not indicated in the paragraph about "making connections" of the bus riding webpage:
"If you pay your fare with MetroCard, you may transfer free from local bus-to-subway, subway-to-local bus or local bus-to-local bus within two hours of the time you paid your fare. Unlimited Ride MetroCard includes all transfers free of charge..."

Clearly, using the same local bus line twice falls in the bold-ed scenario, but of course, they don't allow it. I find this annoying, why so freaking strict? I really dislike the MTA (too bad shitibike sucks almost as bad).
