Work and pray

A Muslim bus driver decided he needed to stop for a break. Not for a pee, but to pray.

Trouble is, he had a load of passengers on board the bus, in North London. As he knelt in the isle, the paying passengers were trapped in their seats.

Gayle Griffiths, aged 33, complained to Transport for London about the incident on the Number 24 bus in Gospel Oak last week.

“When he had finished, he just got back up and set off again – all without any explanation or apology. It was truly bizarre, ludicrous and aggravating.”

Yes, anyone of right mind would be similarly irritated. Transport for London say he has been reprimanded. We can only hope he’s not tempted to pull the silly stunt again. When you’ve paid to get from A to B on a public service you don’t expect to be held up while some berk indulges in his superstition.

Ah, the British need to adopt a bit of rudeness for things like that.

If that ever happens to me here in the U.S. I'll be openly mocking his religion and beliefs.
