there are good things and bad things about driving buses for a living,
you get to work in the dry while watching everyone else get soaked when it rains,
you don't have the same dull view out of your office window (you get several dull views of complete idiot drivers)
you get to meet a variety of people,
if you set your seat up properly you can look at all the girls getting on (whilst they all ask for child fares and fail.)
you get a high percentage of people saying thank you
and you have to suffer shifts...
i have to get up at four ( 4, IV, 2+2, FOUR!) in the morning for the coming week. eesh!
but it is sort of worth it, I get trusted (don't know why) with 12 tons of bus (unladen) valued at a quarter of a million pounds... It can out accelerate some sports cars, has air con, more legroom than most 4x4s, cruise control, private bus lanes, ride adjustable computer controlled suspension, enougth fuel to drive to manchester and back with a full load, adjustable steering controls and a seat that has more adjustments than most rpg character sheets...
i love my job.
