Och, not at all Chris. One of his routes is the one that goes past my door. And while I recognise some of the figures he talks about (the Electric Scarecrow for one), it's usually all pretty normal.

Usually.

I concur, Neil. You meet a very nice class of person on Glasgow buses. I once met an elderly gentleman from the Orpheus Choir one time, who serenaded us all with Highland lullabies. Lovely voice - you could have heard a pin drop!
!

Alison - just off to see your bird's nest!

Isn't: "He was trigonometry in brogues." just a wonderful line?


It's all too horribly familiar though.

I'm very sorry to report that Glasgow doesn't have a monopoly on this sort of thing. We've got plenty of it right here in Velcro City.

Hah, cheers, Marion. Aye, he's got a feel for the patter that boy. My problem is whenever I jump onto a 66 on Great Western Road I wonder: "Is that him? And is he mentally sizing me up for a screed on his blog?"

Paul's Velcro City is a real place (Portsmouth IIRC??), so I'm sure they have bampots and bawheids just like that down there. Even if their busdrivers aren't quite so eloquent.

I scoff at your pathetic example of public nuttery. Here in sunny Steel City we have an altogether superior class of care-in-the-community types.

After all, this is the city where a bloke - pissed of course - went home to fetch his shotgun to show his mate... and on his way back to the pub, shoved it down the front of his trousers and blew his own bollocks off.

Nearly every day, I encounter Shouty Football Nutter. Who appears to suffer from both schizophrenia and Tourette's Syndrome, and always wear football kit - even in the depths of winter. He'll be there on the tram, letting out the filthiest stream-of-consciousness abuse you've ever heard, and then will break into a Carpenters' song. When you've heard "fucking flying cart-horse, fucking, fuck, fucking cart horse" suddenly segue into "why do birds.. suddenly appear... Every time you are near", you've heard pretty much everything.

:-)

There's also the nutter who stands outside our office building, ranting about "fucking Scargill 1986" at the top of his voice. A friend claimed to have seen him in the bus station holding a normal conversation with someone, but I have my doubts...
