Best thing's when...

…you see a bus going down a minor street where there’s no usual route, imho, especially when it goes right past your house.

Thanks for comin’.


This is the BEST. Happened the other day near my house while my in-laws were visiting. They were surprised at how excited it had made me. Brought it up multiple times that day, was thinking about it yesterday evening when I saw a bus too.

Only thing better is being on the bus when this happens, the low level thrum of excitement that spreads through all the passengers…are we lost? Is it a new driver? Are we being diverted in some kind of Bus That Couldn’t Slow Down scenario?


was once at a bus stop really early in the morning when a bus, that didn’t normally go that route, pulled up.
The driver got out and was like “Sorry mate, you don’t know where this bus starts from do you? i don’t normally drive the M2s” and so I had to direct him to where his route started. Was weird AND great :grinning:


When you see someone who works in a cafe or a restaurant buying loads of one thing like milk or coke in the nearest corner shop


Especially good if it’s a double-decker and you’re not on the ground floor

Happened to me today.

No matter how old you are you look, point and shout “BUS!”, especially if it’s a double decker, like it’s some sort of miracle.

Bus diversions are a serious matter.
