I have just discovered that taking a bass on a bus is among the worst ideas in the world! I was taking my bass to have adjustments made, and the only way I can get to the town myself is by bus, seen as it's roughly 3 1/2 miles away. I got on the bus as normal, and took a seat a couple of rows back. I had my bass placed between my legs. It seemed like everyone who came onto the bus kicked, barged into or pushed my bass about. Yet when I made complaint to the driver, I was told that it wasn't their concern. Why is it that people see you with a musical instrument and seem to think it gives them the right to treat you badly? Why don't they apologise? PS One thing did cheer me up. A little boy saw my case, asked me what it was and when I told him it was a bass, he asked me if I was going to play on the bus! This made me feel better!
