My ticket was inspected on the Bus this morning  
I'm flabbergasted. I had honestly thought that ticket inspectors were a myth, having never encountered one before.

They used to show up now and then on buses in the West Midlands. Before that, I hadn't seen one since I was at school, when they automatically used to assume that any kid in a school uniform was out to defraud the bus company!

I remember them from Bournemouth in, I guess, the 1980s...

I remember them!
Takes me back to my days commuting to school on t'bus. And yes, there was usually someone trying to dodge the fare and the inspectors!

I met one a couple of weeks ago, which I think was the first one I'd encountered in 4 years in MK, but before that I regularly used to see them while commuting from Aylesbury to Oxford, as well as commuting to school by bus in the '80s.
