The bus driver I was chatting to said it was the best job he’d ever had.

A mate of mine gave up an EL1 position in the APS to become a bus driver. He reckons it’s the best decision he ever made (i.e it’s a great way to meet women).

Personally, I gave up riding on buses when the bloke in front of me coming home one night kicked a women on the other side of the isle while he was sniffing glue. I don’t particularly want a job where the passengers have more rights than the driver, who apparently can’t kick idiots off buses any more and can’t refuse to give someone a ride if they don’t have the fare. Sheesh.

I can’t join as I’m not overweight, have a grey beard or like to wear shorts with socks pulled up to my knees.

The grey beard rules me out too. Mine is still brown.

Granny – I see quite a number of female bus drivers so I’m sure they would overlook your brown beard…

Yes, well I am looking for a job. It will help me pay the now $10,000 for the car I smashed up. Do you all feel afraid yet?

I applied for action about 3 months ago and got knocked back
They say they don’t hire people that weigh over 120 kg’s I do weigh over 120 kg’s but that has not stopped me being a truck driver for the last 10 years
Personally I think that discrimination
