Bus Driver Of Five Years Reveals Rude Comments She Gets From Passengers

A female bus driver has revealed some of the 'rude' and 'inappropriate' comments she's heard over the five years she's been working.

Jodie Leigh Fox, 24, has spoken about some of the challenges she faces on the buses of London - starting with things passengers have said to her.

The mum-of-one told The Sun: "I have many rude customers because I'm female. I've had many inappropriate comments such as I wear 'too much make up' or 'I'm fat' or have 'too much lip filler'.

"However, you just have to let it go otherwise it would effect the rest of your day.

"I also see a lot of drunk people, but I love it because that used to be me. It doesn't really bother me."

Despite having a few bad experiences, Jodie says she 'loves the customers' (at times) and went on to speak about a fond memory with a customer who has a disability.

She explained: "He got my bus every day and then to say thank you he got me a gift which was a little wine set - we've been the best of friends since."

Speaking about a typical day, Jodie said: "My whole day starts around 1pm onwards as I have a daughter so she goes to nursery at half twelve and I start my shifts around half one two, depending on traffic.

"I get to the yard and depending what duty I'm doing I either make my own way using my car or get the work ferry taxi to my start location.

"Each route is different as there are some short and some long routes. My main route was the 15 which started at Blackwall and terminated at Trafalgar Square.

"This took about an hour and half, then we get about 15 or 20 minutes at each end before we set off again."

It's clear to see how much Jodie loves her job and she says that seeing different parts is her favourite thing.

She explained: "I never really got out and about before I became a bus driver and I've seen some amazing places being a bus driver. I also love the customers - at times!"

But, like everything else even the good bits have their downsides, as she revealed: "Sometimes it does get stressful especially in the summer as you're sitting in a hot sweaty cab."
