The Bus Journey Blog Why Are We In Such A Hurry To Nowhere? 6th January 2019
I was travelling on my way to Church on the Number 63 Bus from Old Kent Road to Peckham Rye on Sunday. I have decided to start 2019 right, making decision that will impact about the changes to my life. In moving forward to a better way of living, after what happened to me the past five (5) years of hell. I endured at the hands of my former employers London Early Years Foundation www.leyf.org.uk. Therefore, I have been taking stock of happenings around me as part of my therapy and healing. Considering I was thinking of writing a blog about the impact of depression. And how Social Media is playing a big part in spreading and worsening the epidemic, this is a good place to begin.
On Sunday morning I was left agog at how we as human treat our fellow human beings. And in particular those who serve the public in any capacity. By the time the bus reached the Bus Stop at the Peckham Post Office for change of drivers. The new driver was already waiting to start her job. Unlike in some cases when the changeover driver is late. And the bus would be throttling because the changeover was not in place, waiting. Let me provide a scenario for readers to understand what I am trying to convey, writing this blog. By the time the driver done her checks before stating, the bus was empty, excepting us two. I have to make a comment to draw her attention to the fact, to which the driver responded.
There was a conversation as I had to point out that I witnessed a similar situation on Friday on the Number 1 Bus. This seems to becoming the norms for some of us to behave? I am making this relevant to why I am writing this blog. I am trying to get across that in life, we have to live by the rules and norms of the society we inhabit. We have to take into consideration the fact that there are the Rules of Law that govern societies. Therefore, how can we treat each other with such disrespect, when carrying out designated duties? Then we get up and start complaining when things don’t go our way. However, on Sunday I witness people acting and behaving in such manner that left me questioning if we have made any progress in human behaviours?
Now I will have to make reference to my situation, and how I find myself in it. Every single individual went back on their words, after the changes that occurred in my life over a period of time. I returned from attending my mother’s funeral and transferring to Southwark South London to work in July 2014. I had not worked in South London since September 2009 because of the circumstances that ruined my career and put a stop to my dreams. This was whilst I was finalising studies with the Open University email@example.com 2004 – 2008. Around this time my brother was stricken with colon cancer and died a few months later in March 2008. By November 2008 I had to resign work with a nervous breakdown.
Despite self-referring to the NHS Occupational Health where I worked in the workplace nursery, 2003 – 2008. I was targeted for raising concerns www.acas.org.uk/researchpapers. Because of my studies with www.open..ac.uk/ceremonies, I had to adhere to Ethical Guidelines. Therefore, I carried out my work applying my defensive practice in keeping records. But even this was not good enough to help me, once I was viewed as threats to those who failed to adhere to the www.ofsted.gov.uk Welfare Requirements. That’s when the Local Education Authority Southwark Council Sen@southwark.gov.uk colluded with the NHS to ruin my career. The http://unison.org.uk/ joined in with the discrimination and left I stranded on my own. Years later there is no record of the case because the file has been destroyed in accordance with the Record Retention and Disposal Policy.
The establishments and systems are in breach of their own Policies and Procedures as can be seen with https://facebook.com/public/Mervelee-Myers. There are those abusing the power of their authority and given the sanction to make us voiceless vulnerable. That’s why I have taken up Advocacy after I was made a victim at https://www,gov.uk/employment-tribunal/decisions/ms-m-myers-v-london-early-years-foundation-230047-2016. Some are very good at covering up their track records of discrimination, when staff like the Bus Driver is going about their legitimate duty. The Government have been fooled and conned by those who are manipulators. Examples of these individuals, organisations, legal entity, etc. is why I have set up https://goo.gl/posts/XByJv.
I have been learning valuable lessons from my experiences of the last few years after returning to the UK after burying my mother. But of note is the fact of what has been happening since my return to South London. This is where everything that could go wrong happened to me. What I learned the most from these encounters, travelling on public transport is an eye opener. There is evidence that some people want things to be done in an instant. We don’t stop to think about the schedules that others have to fulfil. As the Bus Driver said, she have to do the checks. Is it any wonder that we see on the news and read in print about people who failed to adhere by the laws, legislations and codes of practices and conducts? And thinking the law will not catch up with them in the long run.
That’s when you hear the authorities that neglected their duties coming talking about lessons will be learned. Let me refer to my Fight4justice campaign and why I have spent the past five years advocating on behalf of anyone who experience discrimination at the hands of others. Want to know more and join the campaign? Check Fight4justice/Advocacy https://fight4justiceadvocacy.business.site. This is in honour of those who serve in whatever capacity. But in particular the Bus Driver on the Number 63 Bus on Sunday 6th January. Who took up her duties at the Peckham Post Office? I appreciate you even more because I don’t drive and need your dedication to your chosen job to get me out and about in London. Thanks very much for Sunday. You are an Angel.
