Soldier gets kicked off bus.

#1
Was coming back from Town this morning when we stopped and a few passengers got on the bus, including a soldier, wearing camo, shiny boots and a big fcuk-off bergen over his back. Well anyway, to cut a long story short, he told the driver he was 10p short on the fare and was told to get off the bus. When the guy asked again, the driver threatened him with shopping him to the fuzz. I, and a woman sat next to me told the driver what we thought of him and us too were kicked off.

I would like to see the fat knobber behind the wheel do half the stuff that man has done.

Rant over.

Pretty bad form from the driver, but if it was anyone else and they were 10p short, would you be posting about them? A fare's a fare, and if he didn't have the correct the money then the driver's well within his rights to do refuse a ticket. Bad form though! :x

Edited to add, you could have just lent him 10p!

Good for you to stick up for the chap....but might it have been an idea to have paid the 10p for him?....just a thought...


(though perhaps I do live in cloud cuckoo land...)

Why was he getting on a bus in full kit plus camo? Very odd.
Tut, some people. NOT full kit. Just camo with a bergen.

Seems to me, (and dont get me wrong this is just an observation) People are desperate for squaddies to get grief in some form in order to cause outrage within the forces. There are countless goups on facebook now that hark on about the soldier who has just returned from Ops not being given free something or other. The bloke was 10p short, unlucky. He is a geek for getting on a bus in cam cream anyway, theres no reason for it. :?

The British public are soon going to get bored of feeling sorry for us soldiers soon. Kicked off a bus for not having money, unlucky. Not given the proper care after returning injured from Operations, Unforgivable.

[align=center]Lets get our priorities straight, after all we did volunteer![/align]

I know what you mean but its not that reason I'm posting it. I just think that 10p could be forgotten. Not humiliated in front of the whole bus.

was it an outrage bus you were kicked off?

Roger, fair one!

While its a bummer for the soldier, if the driver had let him off the fare, then he could have been in trouble with his fares not tallying with his computer? He may well have ended up in trouble given how petty many of the bus companies are now (I'm sure I've read of drivers being disciplined or sacked for being pence out) - there are 2 sides to every story.

If thats humiliation, id suggest a reality check.

Why didn't the squaddie just get off a stop early?

Or are you posting this from a PDA hoping the Outrage bus will pick you up and drop you off?

I smell a great big dollop of horseshit

There are apparently (at least) two sides to every bus and not all make the inside (except those with fifty quid notes).

C'est la vie!
