Bus driver suspended for simultaneously playing PSP while driving

KGMB out of Hawaii is reporting that a bus driver caught on digicam driving his route while simultaneously playing a game on his PSP and kicking his legs up on the dashboard has been suspended without pay. “He was continuously playing his video game! CONTINUOUSLY!” shrieks the aggrieved passenger, but why so serious: surely this sort of natural multi-tasker is the kind of guy you want to keep around, though, capable of making split navigation decisions while otherwise embroiled in a heart round of Tekken: Dark Resurrection.

I find myself most interested in what game he was playing. Something turn based, I assume, but my heart hopes against hope that he was playing Grand Theft Auto.

    I like to bring a deck of cards and play solitaire on the dashboard.

    This has actually been the talk around the office (I work at a transit company) for a bit now. Notice how the bus driver didn’t get fired? Union reps hard at work.

    Thats pretty bad… I bet he’s even playing ‘virtual bus driver 3: an all new route’.

    That’s assuming that he can really multitask; of course, every asshole in an SUV who’s crawling down the fast lane because they’re more interested in their phone conversation thinks the same. True multitasking? Me smashing in their windshield while screaming about barbecuing their children. (or fantasizing about the same)
