This is a question Buses

We've got a local bus driver who likes to pull away slowly just to see how far old ladies with shopping trollies will chase him down the road. By popular demand - tell us your thrilling bus anecdotes.

Thanks to glued eel for the suggestion

Observer of unconsidered trifles...
Since I can't drive, following a driving test/nudity incident that I won't bore you all with, I've had an adventure or two on buses. I offer these for your delectation (Routemasters rock!)...

A smartly dressed gentleman with a huge suitcase asked "'ere, mate is it OK if I bung this in here?" the conductor nodded, and busy with his work he didn't notice the aforementioned gentleman alight from the bus and mount his trusty bicycle in order to follow his luggage on the bus.

I had to laugh as the driver did his level best to speed away from bus stops and traffic lights in a bid to separate the man from his luggage. T'was to no avail though, as the man kept pace without even breaking sweat. Of course the bus crew were powerless to stop the ingenious gent from reclaiming his suitcase at journey's end, he just nipped into the open back, hoicked it out of the rack and went on his way.

On the journey back, I sat upstairs staring idly out of the window when there was a huge commotion on the lower deck. Voices were raised and there was much swearing and a scraping noise. Nosey bint that I am, I ventured down to view the scene.

I had to laugh, there were four men of (I guess) Asian heritage, heaving a huge, flowery sofa onto the bus, to the protests of the conductor, and the driver who had dismounted to join the fray. There was some high quaility arm waving and shouts of "You can't bring that on here!" It was only lack of space that made the amateur movers see sense and remove their furniture. As one of them pointed out "C'mon Dad, where would we put the chairs?"

The 1970's were a much more innocent time..
