Last night (tuesday) had the night from hell (4 Code Reds in 5 trips on the 229 , who said it was a lovely route )
Had some kids get on in Belvedere and no word of a lie one of them looked about 20 I asked for a pass and was told ain't got one and they went to go upstairs, so I done the usual i.e. switched the bus off, with that some bloke who was not even on the bus or releated to the kids came running on to the bus and started thumping my assualt screen asking what the problem was, told him firstly it was him as there was no need for him to threaten me and secondly the kids, he started going on that they was alright and continued to hit the assualt screen so I hit the assualt alarm and done a code red he went mental hitting the assualt screen even more, punching my nearside mirror so it ended up in front of the windscreen and threw a bin at the side of the bus as he went off.
Anyway I done a report of the incident (for what it's worth ) only to be told tonight by a manager that I had made the situation myself and I should have just let the kids get on and then if I saw one before that got off flagged down a Police Car or revenue (yeah right like the Police would stop or Revenue would venture into Belvedere ) then this manager goes on to say drivers are two a penny but buses cost thousands of pounds, so in other words it's ok for me to get assualted as there's someone else to replace me cheaply, however we can't let anything happen to their precious bus can we
Seriously peeed off and am seriously considering telling them where they can poke their job, it's bad enough we have to deal with the s**t on the street let alone not getting the back we deserve from the management
Sorry about the rant but I'm in a really bad mood (suppose it's a good job I'm resting tomorrow and have a day to calm myself down)
