Hen-Gen does "slapper" have the same meaning it had in my youth, and what (or who) is a dweeb?
How shall I put this? A slapper is a youngish woman of loose morals who likes eating chips and who drinks such things as sambuca, Martini and Lemonade etc.

A dweeb is a gutless, weedy man.

(Apologies to anyone who only ticks one of those boxes :D .)

What it meant when I was young then, although the drinks were different. Shame Sambuca has now got a bad reputation - used to enjoy it with an after dinner coffee as long as I remembered to let it cool having blown out the flame!

Yes it is an offence to distract the driver, no hands free, it is instant dismissal if you use a phone on a bus, even if it is stationary. We could download the CCTV and get the details though
Most of the foreigners on the bus probably didn't speak English so she was probably safe on that score, so even if they had been of a criminal mind.
And of course, there are no native British criminals, so I'm sure it was fine! :D :D
Lead me not into temptation. I can find the way myself!
