Honest Joe

"How are you?" I overheard a lady bus driver asking Joe, another school bus driver.

"Bloody terrible."

"And how are you, Sylvia?"

"Bloody terrible too." The bus proceeded to rock with laughter.

How refreshing I thought. It beats the usual insipid half truths people tell. 'Notbad, so so, OK and quite good' are cases in point and you usually have to take it as the opposite.

I wish more people would be forthright and say bloody brilliant or bloody awful. The world would be a better place.
