Yorkshireman horrified after bus driver accepts £20 note takes fare and returns change
Publican Bernard Postlethwaite attempted to board the 127 from Dewsbury to Wakefield earlier today.
As the bus doors slowly concertenered open, he proudly stepped on waving a £20 note at the driver.
“Wakefield please lad. As only got a twenty though mate.” He proudly declared, winking at the seated passengers.
But to his astonishment driver Trevor Parker, smiled, took receipt of the note, printed a ticket out, and handed it to Postlethwaite along with his change.
“Are you sure lad? Can tha not just let me ‘op on? I don’t want to trouble you by taking all your change this early.” An agitated Postlethwaite enquired.
“It’s ok.” Replied the driver.
“This is me last route fot day.”
Onlookers said that a now visibly angry Postlethwaite then demanded his money back whilst mumbling something about having to pay to get around God’s own country.
He was last seen walking briskly in the direction of Wakefield, firmly clutching his £20 note.
It’s no lie that I like posting these ramblings, but at the minute it’s just not giving me anything back, and as much as I enjoy it, I do it to try and make a little extra cash on side. So, if you’re able, please consider helping me with my booze fund.
