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

Buses! Schoolkids! Court Cases!
When I was at school we'd all wait for the bus over the road from the shop in our little village. Back then the rough pavement verges next to the A-road were covered in a mixture of grass, litter and dog shit. I lost count of the times that some poor sod got berated for tropmping already-eaten winalot up the aisle of the coach, but I digress.

Being boisterous young lads there was always a pointless bundle for the door to be first on the bus when it arrived. Fuck knows why - we were going to school after all. But today, we were going to be late.

When the coach door opened it would swing outward and hinge 90 degrees toward the rear of the coach. Good ol' Drives would helpfully begin opening the doors as the bus was about to stop to minimise stoppage time.

So this particular damp morning a bundle of energetic young lads were jostling for prime boarding position on a moist grass verge whilst a several-ton coach approached and opened its door.

Amid the argy-bargy Ben happened to take a coach door in the face. Then he slipped. Then he screamed. Quite a lot.

When we looked down we could see that the coach had parked its nearside front wheel on Ben's leg. We signalled to Drives. The bus moved. Ben screamed louder.

As the adults there were trying to help him and shield him from our view (whilst lying in what was then the biggest pool of blood I'd seen) I remember thinking to myself "that's odd... why the cocking fuck is he wearing shin pads to school?"

It was only much later it dawned on me that I'd been looking at most of his tibia.

The rest of us ended up getting on the next coach that came along and saw utter horror on the other kids faces as around ten slightly green faced kids marched bloody footprints up the centre aisle of the coach.

Unbelievably his bone didn't break but the wheel ripped off pretty much all of the skin and muscle. The hospital had to take skin and muscle from other parts of his body to rebuild his totally fucked leg.

He didn't take part in sports day that year. But he did become by far the richest kid in school as the bus company ended up paying him ten grand in compensation.

Ten grand
Or two working legs...

I think I know which I prefer.

Think what all that lovely money could buy! A wooden leg!
