Bastard bus drivers. Today ok get this:
I show up to the bus stop and there is this like 10 or 12 year old kid with his bike thats broken. I help him to try and fix it. We can't, so I give this kid enough money for the bus fair and we wait for the bus.
It first drives straight past us. Then it stops and I go and pay for me and explain the kids situation. The bus driver then tells me off for not waving the bus down (which I've never had to do before and I've been using that bus route, at that time for the past six months). Then he closes the door and makes to drive off. The kid isn't on the bus so I ask what the bus driver thinks he's doing. The bus driver just looks at me and says "not allowed bikes" and then drives off. He wouldn't even let me explain to the poor kid what had happened. The kid looks distraught and the bus driver doesn't give a shit. I get home and straight away ring up and make a complaint. Not that that makes me feel any better.
I mean its not as if the bike was big, it was a bmx, the bus wasn't full, there were 2 other people on it. The kid was about 10, he wasn't asking for a free ticket and his bike was broken. Really pissed off. A little bit of social responsibilty would have been nice wouldn't it. Fucking tosser. Am very tempted to ring up in a couple of days and see what action has been taken.
