Persistent Would Be Passenger.
I was driving out of Brixham when an other driver came over on the radio warning the next bus at Eugene Rd heading for Paignton that a person wanted to bring a bike on the bus. Seven or eight minutes later the next driver bus driver said he had refused a would be passenger who wanted to bring a bike on the bus. He also said the person had been a bit abusive. Eight minutes later the next driver got on the radio and asked control if he was right to refuse to carry a bike. Control agreed, we don't carry bikes on the bus. An other seven minutes later the bike and owner of bike were still at Eugene Rd and control stated that buses did not carry bikes. The owner of the bike by this time was very abusive. A fifth bus driver also explained the bike could not be carried one the bus. Before the next bus arrived at Eugene Rd I had arrived in Paignton for my break and I didn't hear if the bike owner had an other try. 38 minutes before the bike owner gave up. What I call persistence.
