I’m a bus driver and I’m sick of people thinking I’m stupid because of my job – there’s a reason I do it

A BUS driver has hit back at assumptions that she's "stupid", insisting she took the job because she loves driving.

Kate Russell stitched a video on her TikTok page as she responded to the question: "What's an incorrect assumption about you people often make?"


"That I’m stupid because I am a bus driver," Kate replied.

"I’m not. I have a BA (Hons) 2:1 in English Language and Literature."

Smiling, she concluded: "I’m not stupid – I just love driving."

People flocked to the comments section to weigh in on Kate's video, with one writing: "A lot if not all bus drivers are more clever than we think."
