It reminds me of a trip on Adelaide's most vile bus where the driver pulled up in the layover zone at West Lakes, before even entering the interchange to finish the run. I had to yell out to get him to continue to the point where he was by default required to stop anyway.

^ He may not have seen you. I remember one time as a bus driver, I was near the end of my trip in an 0305 and I was curious to see how well the brakes performed , so as I made the bus lurch forward (I knew there was no cars behind me as I had just rounded a corner and checked my side mirrors for the all clear), I heard a lady go ohhh and there was an elderly woman sitting right behind me.
She said you gave me a fright. She was ok about it luckily after I apologised and explained I thought the bus was empty.

Back to subject, I got to use a Victa 160cc two stroke mower I found and fixed up and it runs like a top. Cuts like scissors after sharpening the blades on my bench grinder.

Lol you probably made her day. I don't think a face plant into the drivers cab would have made my passenger's day or mine (fortunately didn't happen).
I was traveling home in a bus one time and a fellow driver was talking to me through the mirror what a shitty run the 273 was at that time of day etc and gave the the oops look when he realised a passenger was right behind him.
Luckily he didn't say some real hard core stuff. :oops:
