Bus Driver Fired Over Adjusting Mirror

Bus Driver Fired Over Adjusting Mirror

At this point, the whole country is about one senseless regulation away from ending up like fired Pasadena bus driver Margarito Ayala.

Ayala liked to adjust the bus mirrors before driving, so as not to bash into other vehicles or run over pedestrians…

Then suddenly he was told to stop. Only a mechanic can touch the mirrors.

So Ayala called maintenance to adjust the mirrors for him, resulting in a letter chastising him for creating a “work stoppage.”

They warned him once and after the second time he called up maintenance to adjust his mirrors, he was fired…

This story is so insane that it may not be attributable to government bureaucracy alone. The Teamsters Union is going to try to get his job back. Chances are good that this same union was responsible for only mechanics being allowed to touch the mirrors.
