BERLIN (Reuters) - A German bus driver threatened to throw a 20-year-old sales clerk off his bus in the southern town of Lindau because he said she was too sexy, a newspaper reported Monday.
"Suddenly he stopped the bus," the woman named Debora C. told Bild newspaper. "He opened the door and shouted at me 'Your cleavage is distracting me every time I look into my mirror and I can't concentrate on the traffic. If you don't sit somewhere else, I'm going to have to throw you off the bus.'"
The woman, pictured in Bild wearing her snug-fitting summer clothes with the plunging neckline, said she moved to another seat but was humiliated by the bus driver.
No one has ever accused Germans of overreacting. This woman knew what she was getting into, though. The German mass-transit system operates with efficiency and precision. Any little thing that isn’t accounted for derails the whole operation. This bus driver probably enjoyed the eyeful that he was getting but had to do the noble thing lest Germany fall into chaos. We know that Germans have a reputation for being prickly but who doesn’t like boobs?
