Because they have failed in life and have a crappy low paid job
I've been told I cant get on the bus when I've paid an 80p fare with a £5 note... in both instances, four or five people had got on before, so it'a not like he didn't have change. sooooo annoying!
Wait, bus drivers say hello, and thank you? This is news to me, I have never heard of this.
Sometimes here in London, passengers say thank you, but grumpy drivers are just so common, I don't even notice the difference any more...
Well the drivers in London are alright. Some are very patient when someone is running to try and catch the bus.
I've never had any problems with any bus drivers and I have lived in Birmingham, Bournemouth, Liverpool, Salisbury, Southampton, London and now, Eastbourne. They have always been friendly and helpful if I didn't know where I was going.
I probably would be too if it were my job. The worst thing on the route that I use to go into town is people not reading the front of the bus and asking where it's going, which annoys me, so being asked twenty times an hour would drive me (lol) up the wall.
There are a few bus drivers on that route who are always nice, though. Maybe people just catch some of them at bad times.
The ones around where I live seem pretty nice really, there's the odd grumpy one...
Start driving your own cars people, then you won't have to put up with it any longer.
