back to article German bus driver objects to passenger's breasts

A German bus driver demonstrated exemplary concern for his passengers' safety when he ordered a 20-year-old sales clerk to shift her mammary assets or vacate the vehicle, Bild reports. A shocked Debora C of Lindau recounted: "Suddenly he stopped the bus. He opened the door and shouted at me 'Your cleavage is distracting me …

    Where's the knockers?

    With a glint in my eye and deep sense of anticipation I went to check out the life threatening hooters only to be disappointed with a face shot of the lovely lady with not a breast in sight. Thanks for nothing, Reg...

    Mind you, there was a nice pair on the advert for the German eBay site, though. All's well that end's well.

    Distraction Boobs vs PSP

    Boobs are definatly more distracting than PSP bus driver incident.

    stop moaning

    There is always one person who has to moan about the lack of IT angle.

    Yes the register is primarily an IT news site, however, like many others, I am quite happy to read "selected" amusing news articles, and I think this one qualifys!

    I've been distracted by bigger.

    The bus driver needs to learn how to polish the one-eyed gopher and drive a bus at the same time. Problemo solved.

    To Matt, and Richard.


    Are you a true IT Geek/Nerd or a poser?

    Sorry, but speaking as one of the "true" IT Geeks/Nerds, it is important that you sometimes look up from the source code and take a little joy in the humor of the life that goes on around you.

    Its this little respite that helps to put things in perspective and not want to use my keyboard as a paddle and smack one of my co-workers upside the head. ;-)

    And to Richard... One has to commend you on your due diligence in trying to seek out if there really is truth in journalism. I too went to the link, and I have to concur with your opinion. One can only say that while there may be some truth in journalism, there is definitely censorship. ;-)

    Is such a lovely word. And before the language facists get here, I vote that is never ever scrapped.

    I think Matt's use of speech marks implied it was a JOKE.

    Comprehension skills ?

    Conspicuous in absentia. FFS, the first comment was a JOKE.

    Don't worry, Matt

    I recognise humour when I see it, even if no-one else does.

    Went looking for Debora's knockers...

    I wouldn't kick her out of bed for farting, never mind move her out of view.... silly bus driver... there are worse reasons to crash! :)

  14. lansalot

    missing the point..

    I think instead of being asked to move, the situation should have called for some chivalrous gent to stand up, give the lady a hand, and aid her in disguising said "chesticles".

    I for one would not have stood by and watched this lady being treated in such an offhand manner, and looking to nip the situation in the bud, I would have covered them in an instant.

    I'm sure I would have been appreciatively thanked for said action. Who says chivalry is dead ?

  15. Matt


    @Above people who don't get the joke. Y'all just made my day.

    @anonymous, Steve and Ian - lol someone had to.

  16. Rob Sked

    Please can . . . .

    . . . . someone mirror the photo.

    Purely for research purposes.

  17. Rob

    They can't have been that big....

    ... I can't find them anywhere, they must have removed her "jubs" (I too think it is a word that should be preserved)

  18. Kevin Gurney


    I love that word even more than "JUBS"

    I'll use it at every opportunity !

  19. Dillon Pyron


    Did she have an iPhone jammed in there? Work is blocking it. "nudity" it says. But oddly, I can get to Page 3.

  20. Slade


    I dont think theres anything remotely funny about knockers or jugs, and certainly not a ladies bazookas

  21. Thomas Fischer

    Sod the jubs

    She is gorgeous with or without huge jubs. RRRRRRRRRR Scratch me, bite me, drag me over the carpet but call me tiger.... ;)

    Certainly living evidence that in Germany also gorgeous women exist.

    But somehow somebody should learn a bit more german. Nowhere in this article stands that she has huge jubbs. All it says is that she showed too much cleavage but nothing about the size of her jubs. This busdriver should come to London and see how some birds dress here, or how much they don't dress. Maybe his eyes would start to water then. And not to mention the sticky versions of Playboy under his driver seat... But then this report was from the Bild... not any better than The Sun, and tomorrow we see her as Page 3 Girl.

    Unable to judge

    I am unable to give a reasonable judgement from the photo that is now on the site; has it been changed?

  23. Owen Sweeney


    Well, not really. Work filter rates the linked site as pornographic and blocks it. All I can do is dream...

    fantastic story - the double entendre

    For those of you that don't know, Lindau in Germany is all of 10 kms away from the lovely town of Friedrichshafen - the birthplace and home of the Zeppelin !

  25. Dan

    i concur

    it is impossible to judge from the picture. more investigation needed. and for some reason, the text is written in german, thus alienating anyone who doesn't spreken zie deutsch. tittens.

    Prospective boobs

    Well, luckly I was sent the story yesterday from another site and it did not contain a picture either, so a little searching and I found at least one pair that claim to be related:,,2693860,00.html

    Tis a fair pair.

    German sense of humour - possible failing

    Based on how terrible we know the German sense of humour is, is it possible the driver was trying a "witty" chat up line? I'm sure we'll here the same here soon if he was, "here luv, yer knockers are blocking me view, I'll have to stop the bus..."

    On The Buses

    In the 1970s Stan, Jack, Blakey, Arthur and Olive could have made a whole episode out of this story. Benny Hill would have probably done even better.

  34. Neil Anderson


    Shouldn't that be Boobnote?

    It is the german 'Bild Zeitung', of course it is pornographic ;)

    Great to see everyone using the power of the internet to hunt down the 'missing' pic.,Ausschnitt-zu-sexy:-Fahrer-stoppt-Stadtbus_arid,993971_regid,2_puid,2_pageid,4289.html

    It would indeed make a fine episode of 'On the Buses'. Half the comments here wouldn't go amiss in the script!
