Northamptonshire residents irked by any disruption to their bus journeys over the weekend can blame a lottery ticket, a dozen Stagecoach drivers and a £38m jackpot.Is that ‘sense’? Or merely courtesy?
After learning that they had the winning EuroMillions ticket late on Friday night, some of the 12 bus drivers from the Corby depot gathered to celebrate pocketing more than £3m each.
Fortunately, they had the sense to ring their boss and explain why they wouldn't be coming to work on Saturday.
Spencer, 57, told the Sun that his days behind the wheel of a bus were over.Good for you!
"I'll never work again," he said. "This would have been my 20th year and I have loved it. But I won't be stepping on a bus again now."
John Drew, local manager at the Stagecoach depot in Corby, said he was busy "sorting out the gaps" on Monday morning, but added that it was a "happy issue" to deal with.Well, indeed! There’s now 12 new jobs for bus drivers going, plus all that extra money to go into the economy on luxury goods and services. Who could argue with that?
Oh. Of course.
