For all you people who think I’m some miserable git who doesn’t have any feelings, This might change your mind….
On a late shift of 4E’s tonight, On the last trip I get to the last stop at Wolverton, It’s around 2340 and there’s a young guy asleep, I go wake him up and he asks where we are, Tell him Wolverton. Then there’s suddenly a look of panic on his face when he tells me he meant to get off a Greenleys. He asks where the bus is going and I say the Depot now.
He then bursts into tears and says “My mum’s gonna kill me!!”
After okaying it with the garage, I tell him that although I’ve finished for the night, It’s his lucky day as I’ll take him back home in the bus, Which I do, and in fact he got dropped off right outside his house, Far nearer than the bus stop he should’ve got off at….
Just goes to show that us bus drivers do feel sorry for passengers sometimes!! 😛
