Work blog turned into "comedy" show

In yesterday's Sunday Times was a story about a rather well known work blog - Blood Bus: A Driver's Blog of Night Bus Terror.

The story concerns the blog being turned into a radio show for BBC Scotland's Comedy Unit.

The show is on Friday, May 22nd at 6.10 p.m. - details here and how to listen if you are not based in Scotland.

A couple of snippets from the article...

Reasons for start blogging about work - a way of poking fun at the passengers whose antisocial behaviour can turn an eight-hour shift behind the wheel into an interminable ordeal.

The basis for the blog - a host of characters, based on real passengers, including drunks, neds, junkies and muppets.

Why keep blogging - I could never run out of stories...There’s always something going on.

The company's view of the blog - "First has no official association with the blog. We do not endorse any of the comments made and firmly believe that the views represented are certainly not indicative of the majority of our employees”.

See All aboard the Bloodbus route to terror and comedy by Gillian Harris for more details.
