Arseholes needed to
drive buses. Must be prepared

Today - and I'm talking more than just the one bus here - it was whilst waiting for a No 38 to Victoria ('The Route of all Evil'). But, to be honest, it could probably have happened just about anywhere on the London Transport network - it seems to be a far more frequent occurrence these days: buses that don't stop, drivers with short fuses - you know the sort of thing. And don't get me started on ill-mannered passengers...

This is just my 17 Syllable therapy/revenge. And, boy, do I feel better for it, thank you......
