Bus Station Rigmarole

The bus sits for a few minutes on the bus stand. The lights go on and off. The driver sits in the dark looking out the window at the queue of potential passengers building. Driver gets out of his seat, takes his cash box out of its position in the door and walks the length of downstairs and upstairs checking. Not sure what for, they never seem to pick anything up and haven't got a spare hand to pick up much anyway. Once the check is complete, go back to the cabin and change the destination sign. An irritating driver will sit back down for a quick fag and a peruse of the newspaper. Others will rev the engine and light the lights whilst the forming queue shifts on its feet.

Today the driver was irritating.
