Help, I think I am a Bus!
Top afternoon transport/machinery smartness here in BS5!
The bin lorry just came down the street which is always secretly entertaining for a quick ten seconds of hydraulic noisy action as it lifts the bins up and over (36 going on 10).
Today however, one bin lorry was followed by a second and then a third! Maybe they thought they were buses as they always come in threes.
The crews were loud and noisy and larking about, and it was quite a caper. The third bin wagon caned it down the street (which is narrow) but seemed to pose no danger to VX52 and his colleagues parked on the road.
Somewhat dangerously I took a picture - the sort of people who normally photograph bin lorries probably only do so on day release from institutions.
You may have to click on the pic' to enlarge and confirm a bin lorry hat trick.
No complaints here about slack collections in BS5!
(D', I *know* you would have found this smart so don't be at me on the comments, bro'!)
