If this happened in NZ

If this was in New Zealand he’d be off to a tribunal where he’d;

  • Get his job back for hurt feelings and a massive cheque to say sorry
  • Probably then sue his employer (and the government) for illegally spying on him by watching the video of his stupidity that he chose to post in a public forum!

A Singapore bus driver has been fired after he was caught on video trimming his nails while driving along an expressway. 

The 29-second video, posted on the Facebook page “SG Share” on July 26, showed the driver resting his left hand on the steering wheel while trimming the nails with a clipper held in his right hand.

He then momentary lifts his left hand from the steering wheel to examine the trimmed fingernails.

The page administrators wrote that the footage had been captured a day earlier on board a bus travelling from Singapore’s Changi Airport to the city-state’s northern suburbs.

It is not clear how fast the man was driving at the time. The maximum speed limit on expressways is 90 kilometres per hour (55.9 miles per hour).

“We have investigated the incident and have taken appropriate disciplinary action against the Bus Captain. He was dismissed immediately,” a spokesman for state-linked transport operator SMRT told AFP.

    If only Angry Andy Little was on that bus, he could have tweeted the event. “Horrible bus driver cutting nails at wheel, made me late, driver should be sacked”

    • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

      At least he was not “sleeping” and driving….

    • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

      Chicken Little would have asked for an upgrade as well….

      • Garbageman

        Bus terminals dont have Koru Clubs when the Little fk can piss up on the tax payer and abuse staff so unlikely he would be seen dead on a bus

    • FredFrog

      Little sucks at the public tit. He wouldn’t even be in a taxi, let alone a bus. The little prick would expect a limousine.

  • Bunswalla

    He was probably given 10 lashes of the rotan as well.

    Welcome to the real world.
    He should not have been cutting his nails in company time lol

    Well the driver would be safe in Auckland. From what I’ve seen of Auckland traffic a bus would be fucking lucky to get to 90km/ph, the driver could probably do his toe nails driving a bus in Auckland.
