    North has cheaper things. Everything else is fine, I don't mind most people in general. Londoner conventions are off tho. I hear rumours of people not thanking bus drivers and it makes me worry for the future of our country.

    So you’re telling me whilst there’s 50 people pushing on to get on the bus in a hurry to get to work/school stumbling in the bus you’re supposed to say thank you?

    We face that up north but we still drop a little “ thankyou” at the end of the journey. But I mean.. each to their own.

    Don’t get me started. I have beef with people who live a four hour car journey south calling where they are the North. People from Winterfell telling people they live at The Wall. You don’t know what the true north is.. :beard:

    Could be something to do with the fact that most people don’t even walk past the bus driver when getting off.

    I havnt been up north enough to judge that, but certainly in London you have a door at the front where you get on. There is also a door in the middle where you get off. So there’s a chance you don’t pass the driver when getting out.

    Yeah. There’s no seating at the front of the bus, the first seating is after the stairs directly opposite the 2nd set of doors. It’s a general principle you enter at the front (where you pay) and exit in the middle.

    Lol well you should have mentioned this. Obviously you're not expected to say thank you if you get off in the middle. Just like you're not expected to go up to the train driver and say thanks when you get off out the middle carriage. I thought you just meant you walk past the driver and don't say anything.

    Well I assume because they are so prevalent in London, you don’t even think that the busses won’t be like that anywhere else. You assume it’s logical to have an entrance and an exit.



    I feel like I really contributed to moving the discussion tonight for the first time ever.
