Oh McGrath, bus conductors were worth their weight in gold! In W London we called them 'clippies'. They were often real jokers. I loved it when they sang "'old very tight please!" then went 'ding! ding!' with the bell. And that priceless "Hany more fares please?" (Cockneys took aitches off when they were present and added them when they weren't)
My husband has just left for work and wants us to add 'feesh and cheeps', 'Chreestmas cake' and 'meence pies' to the list.
