Angry just one of those days!

well yesterday (monday) i had one of those days....2 crashes in 1 day!

1st crash was due to a woman in a blue astra attempting to overtake the bus were the roads get narrow. she lost her nearside wing mirror...completely exploded. whereas my bus just got a small dent in the emergency exit....when will people learn they will always lose against the bus.

2nd crash, i was in the depot about to stick a double decker in reverse and the fella in front decided to do it fast and reverse into me...nearly killed the supervisor and made me nearly shite myself. i was stationary whereas he was reversing at around 10mph. his rear nearside corner smashed into the front of the decker directly where the cab was....completely wrote that corner off the bus, the decker left with a small dent in the bumper.

the weird thing, i was driving the bus that crashed into me in the decker earlier that night!!!

tis the season to be crashing buses....

nah they were both non-fault so they cant blame me, if they do i should be looking to take it further.

1st crash - woman tried to illegally overtake me
2nd crash - i was stationary, other driver reversed into me.

but will keep you posted.

EDIT: betty that vid did make me laugh, that is typical [email protected] depot
