Bus drivers in London are a breed of people who receive a lot of abuse from the public (usually from school kids, drunk people etc.) and when you see bus drivers get abused sometimes you just think to yourself that it’s way too much, especially given that they just want to drive from point A to point B. At times, this can be only one side of the story, sometimes bus drivers can receive abuse but the way that they act about it will make you think that they deserve every last bit of abuse that they receive.
Driving a bus can’t be an easy job which is understandable, but at times drivers make it clear how sour they’re about their jobs and it’s really easy to see when they take that sourness out on the public. I’ve seen some drivers engage in stupid antics like taking oyster cards away from students for no reason, turning off the bus because people won’t move down, even though there’s no God damn space and worst of all, getting brave because they’re locked in a cubicle protected by tempered glass. There are a lot of instances where bus drivers start trouble on members of the public (fucking pricks) and when you look at it, it just makes you think ‘yeah, fuck you and everything you stand for.’
I’ll admit that I don’t like bus drivers (in London) and I’ll never become one as long as I live (when I was a child, I wanted to be a bus driver for some odd reason).
Before I get anymore carried away than I am, the point is simply to get money then get a car and of course FUCK bus drivers (in London).
On a side note, TFL are really fucking stupid. No lie, if you look at their rules regarding oyster top ups it’ll make you ask yourself ‘why the hell is Boris Johnson the mayor of London’, he’s a completely useless guy.
