When you work difficult jobs, there's really not much a person can look forward to except their lunch break.
It doesn't matter what you brown-bagged to the office. It could be a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. But when you sit down and start chomping down on that meal, you savor every bite. Every minute you have not doing your job or dealing with the stress of it is paradise.
Now there are some people who handle their break times better than others by sheer ingenuity and creativity. These are the break time heroes: Bold individuals who make the most out of a seemingly insignificant amount of time. This London bus driver is one of those heroes.

All right, maybe you won't go that far, but you know what I mean.

But it doesn't have to be that way. There are plenty of awesome vending machines out there that go above and beyond the stale chips and crusty, white-dust-coated candy bar stereotype.
