“Please help me persuade Arriva Midlands North to get friendly bus drivers!!!” – emily williams

Description

emily williams

I got on the 33 at Telford trainstation and I said to Muxton please. The bus driver then said thats 1.70 so i gave him a 2 pound coin because that is the only loose change i had on me at the time. He then made a sarcastic comment and said Thanks for the right change luv its not like your obligated to give us the right change. I found that very rude and no reason for it what so ever I dont see the big problem here? It wasn't like I gave him a five pound note. I don't like the way I was treated and i found the driver was speeding too much and made the journey uncomfortable for the elderly people. I didn't respond to what he said and he just chucked my change down for me and i went and got a seat. I think bus drivers should be polite and respectful and I don't see the need for that kind of behavior.
