To think that my 6 year old shouldn't need ID to prove she's a child?

Bus driver wanted to charge us full fare for her today, as she doesn't have ID shock

He was a total grumpyarse from the offset, but eventually managed a smirk when I pointed out that his company actually only charge half fare for a child. He was adamant that "rules are rules. Sorry darling" <seethe>, refused to let us buy a child ticket & we had to get off the blinking bus & wait for the next one

DD is only just 6 FFS

So was this guy bonkers, or just a wanker?

OMG how utterly bizarre. Complain to the bus company. Sounds like he's having some kind of breakdown and shouldn't be driving buses!

as far as i know only 11 year olds upwards should carry a proof of age pass, round here any how.

Actually - and I've only just remembered this - a couple of years ago, I complained to the bus company about some other piece of fuckwittage, and ended up getting an extremely helpful response from the chief exec. And I still have his direct e-mail addy. Ha!
