Bang Goes My Credibility Again


The sound like an exploding balloon made the teacher leap into the air.

"What was that?" asked the nervous children. The main door flew open and then would not close properly, flapping in the wind. One of the air gauges dropped dramatically into the red.

I had to lock the door and as the brakes seemed unaffected, it was best to continue gently. We made it.

When I returned to the depot, I was greeted by the mechanic.

"What have you broken now, driver?"

"You're a disaster," said the boss. "This is the second time in two days you've broken the bus."

But this time it was not my fault. A piece of metal had corroded and caused the fault. It was soon fixed.
