Until they start researching the relevant rules and regulations! Then they become a bit scary. I was surprised to see another Whistle blower, actually! Our industry is facing a massive shortage. 

I remember from my time as an Instructor, lots of people thought it would be so easy, anyone could do it. 

If they got through the training and passed their tests, the antisocial and long hours would get them eventually... 

🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

Ignoring the working conditions for now, judging by the standard of driving these days, driving the bus is probably beyond most people

I'm probably the wrong person to answer this because it is a hobby for me. It pays nicely. I only get out of my box to fight for better when nobody else seems to want to! 

I guess it's like anything really; some colleagues see it as just a job, some have a bit more interest in it. 

I took it too far. As I look around me, I'm surrounded by (albeit ornate) Bus and Coach parts. 

Please don't judge me! 😱🤦‍♂️😂😂😂

The ferry van sounds like an issue but as for eating lunch in a crowded room I would personally rather eat lunch outside on my own even if it was raining right now. 

I hope your suggestions get listened to and acted on.

I'll find a link or two that I may have contributed to... 😇

Its probably safer closing the door on the bus and eating your dinner alone. Toilet facilities may prove a problem. The trains all seemed to be empty that run nearby to us. I don't think I have seen a passenger on them since the middle of last week.

In current conditions that might be preferable however a break should, by law, be taken away from the place of work.

I feel for supermarket checkout staff. I feel every time I go in.

I now try to go in one time a week by having a kind lady in the village who will bring my shopping back in the car. I give the checkout person £10 in coins (they have gloves and can wash coins). It is so little to many. It is special for those lovely people.

Think of them. They get pittance yet have to go in there every day.

Very few toilet facilities available, I'm afraid. Local Authorities cut back, and these are the first things to go. If we're lucky, we can use Petrol Stations. Obviously, cafés and restaurants are a no no... As you can read here...
