WeeklyPrompts-PC-Bus-Riding

My first encounter with a public transport bus,

was at the ripe old age of 25 in London.

I purchased a 15-day bus pass to move around the U.K.

With my bus pass in hand I hopped aboard

the first bus that came along.

Yes, it was a red double decker bus.

How many of my readers saw or remember

the English TV show,

On the Buses’?   

Very briefly for those who have not seen the show.

It is about an English bus driver who always seems

to be upsetting/crossing the conductor,

who, in turn, readily points out in no uncertain

terms the driver’s indiscretions.

So here is a weary Woolly sitting in the middle

of the back row on top of red DD bus.

Conductor approaches for ticket,

takes one look at my pass and then proceeds

to deliver a tirade during which he points

out that I was on a RED Bus with a GREEN Bus pass.

My mind raced quickly to many similar scenes

from On the Buses and I spent that five minutes or so,

desperately not trying to burst out laughing.

 

 

 

In fact I have spent far more time aboard

holiday coaches where it seems almost

nothing is out of bounds.

Dancing, playing card, singing,

watching movies and sleeping.

arousing feelings of sympathy or gratitude

We were certainly full of gratitude…

…when we saw our energetic pups

in one of their back door beds.

We knew we could relax for a while.

In fact, we actually thought they were doing

no damage here, until we noticed they

had ripped the mattress cover.

The following day the mattress filling it

was spread around the backyard.

We did not find that part of the story

touching though. 🙂
