A woman who has driven buses for six years in the UK has revealed she’s regularly told she’s too attractive for her job.
A young bus driver has revealed she gets called “too pretty” to do her job and is slammed as “attention-seeking” for wearing make-up.
British woman Charmane Isabella, who posts under @charsbusbanter on TikTok, shared a video on struggles she experiences on the job.
In the lighthearted clip, she acted out customers criticising her for wearing make-up during her shift, with some asking her who she is trying to impress.
However, she then revealed that if she doesn’t wear any make-up people say to her: “You look tired, did you get any sleep last night?”
Charmane, who loves to experiment with hair colours and styles, also added that some people tell her she is “too pretty” to be a bus driver.
When she asks what a typical bus driver looks like, they reply with “old, bald and moody”.
However, passenger comments aren’t the hardest thing about the job.
“So genuinely it is not being able to go to the toilet when you need to go to the toilet,” she explained.
“It is especially difficult for females. It’s a basic human right.”
On Instagram, she said the best part of the job is being alone all day without a manager telling her what to do, but it can get “lonely”.
However, the craziest thing that’s happened to her is someone “pooping” on the bus and “spreading it on the seats”.
Charmane has earned more than 820,000 followers for her bus related content, revealing recently the first video of hers that went viral was about a passenger called Doris.
The “kind” lady gets the same bus at the same time every week, but one week when she wasn’t there, Charmane shared a video of the empty bus stop.
It prompted a flurry of responses from people asking if the elderly woman was OK and quickly went viral.
Charmane also shares clips explaining common bus issues, including why they are always late and the reason you shouldn’t pay with cash.
