I drive a bin lorry as my full time job and today a nasty streak came over me. I get abused on a daily basis due to blocking roads whilst the guys empty the bins and also due to it being 30 ft long and 26 tonnes of vehicle therefore not an easy thing to get out of the way. Don't get me wrong, if I can pull in to let people passed then I always do but most times it's just not possible. Today I'm stopped at the side of the road, cars are parked all down the street so I have nowhere to pull in. As I make my way down the street slowly allowing the lads to empty the bins and move on I'm getting this guy and his wife honking their horn and flashing their lights. I'm used to this but this guy is going at it like he's in a serious hurry so I get out of the cab and go to his car and politely ask him what his hurry is and tell him if I could pull in I would. "We've got a funeral to go to" he says in a very loud and angry voice. "Get the bloody truck moved or we'll be late" says his wife. "You'll be late" says I. "YES!" they both reply. "Well it's not like the deceased is going to notice is it?" says I. The look of utter shock on their faces was a sight to see. I just walked off to the cab and carried on to the end of the street. I'm now subject to a formal interview with my boss. Cheeky or just outright nasty barsteward?
