Hmm. About the only interesting bit of the whole day so far is that the driver of the bus I was on to get to Norwich station this evening had an argument with a cyclist. It was the cyclist's fault, and was really quite amusing as the entire bus had watched with disbelief as first the cyclist tried to overtake the bus on a piece of road that isn't wide enough for both bus and cyclist to fit, then pulled across infront of the bus forcing the driver to slam his brakes on. Then he sat there (holding up the traffic) shouting such pearls of wisdom at the bus driver as "I couldn't've cut you up, I'm on a bloody bike!" and "You should've bloody stopped and let me past at the top, you've got to give way to bikes!". The bus driver suggested the cyclist go get himself a copy of the highway code and read it carefully (and some other less polite things ;) ).

The only interesting thing that ever happened to me on a bus was:- a man got on the bus that the (female) bus driver clearly knew and he said he didn't have any money to buy a ticket - he was the last person on and it was a fairly full bus - and she said, in a slightly annoyed voice, "how can you not have any money - you got paid yesterday". The guy responded by taking out a small ring box opening it towards her and said "i spent it on this ... will you marry me?". Poor bus driver woman started grinning and sobbing and told him she'd "love to" - we had to wait 10 minutes for a new bus driver as she was in no state to drive us anywhere. The man apologised for delaying us though :)
