We recently went on holiday and our bus driver was a miserable old soul. He hooted at everyone and got all worked up when someone got angry when he tried to cut in (he's a bus after all!). He drove too fast around hairpin bends and braked too hard and generally made us glad to be off bus at end of trip.
The next day we got onto another bus (filled with trepidation, I might add) and were greeted by a huge grin from bus driver. She seemed to know all other bus and truck drivers on island and waved to them all. When she went around a particularly tight bend on mountain pass, she would hoot ahead to warn other motorists and when we rounded bend, other big vehicle drivers would actually have stopped all traffic to let her through! She'd thank them with a big wave and a grin and they'd grin right back. Needless to say, we had an absolute ball on that trip!
