The dog was probably the only one in the house who could work the microwave. Believe me, our buses serve that area.
Thank God the households velour tracksuits and bottle of Sunny Delight weren't harmed
Love your observations on the human condition but sometimes just a teeny bit worried by the implicit elitism of them. Are you really a bus driver or in reality a commodities broker in Moorgate?
Having said the politically correct things, keep’em coming. Can you do gym fanatics who I feel are long over due for satire (or rampant p*** taking).

I can do that one! I have a friend who was a black cab driver and often took people to the gym after work. Often there was a queue of taxis dropping off customers and the wait to drive to the door could take 10 minutes. The taxi passenger preferred to sit in the cab with the metre ticking rather than work 50 yards to the door. Sara never did manage to get her head round that one!

Definitely a bus driver. Nothing elite about me, Marigold and Margaid can verify that one
I knew someone who would go to the gym in designer tracksuit, and full make up, when I enquired how she kept her make up perfect whilst working out she said "oh I don't do anything that makes me sweat, or it would ruin it"
Bit like someone else who had all the ski gear because it was trendy. the nearest thing to skiing they got was the ski yoghurt

When my second child was newborn, I went on my first trip to Tesco with our two-year-old perched precariously on a high seat across the top of the traditional-style old pram. In 1970, it was not the done thing to go into a shop with the pram, and there used to be a queue of prams + occupants left outside the shop whilst Mums did the shopping. I got the groceries and set off back home with toddler, only realising after about 20 minutes that I had left something behind, with someone in it! I remember trying to hurry back, with recalcitrant toddler dawdling along complaining. So I sympathise with the mum in your story, bym, but at least I had the excuse of very recent childbirth. When we did at last get back to Tescos, the dear little baby was still fast asleep.

I did that with my car one time. parked in town, did all my shopping, and walked home. Only realised when we got home that I'd forgotten the car! So, dau and I had to walk all the way back to the carpark. And I don't have the excuse of her being newborn. She was about 7! And not impressed with me.

She was very calm about it and asked if she would have to wait for the bus to do it's full circuit, as she could do some shopping whilst waiting. The answer was no way, luckily the bus had only just pulled out and took about 5 mins to come back. The child in question was about 3 years.

Good grief! How much shopping do some people do?

Judging by the bag loads getting on the buses, tons of it.
Plus on the first Saturday in December our bus company have vintage running day with loads of their heritage buses out, so the bus station has been full of very strange people leaping out at any bus coming into view for a photo and going on various routes on the buses. But one man came over and asked if he could lay in the road and gets some fabulous shots as the bus came towards him and could it just stop as its front end went over his legs :o :o The answer was NO
