Bus Driver with two cell phones – Click above to watch video after the jump

The Italians sure do know how to live. Their vehicles are more beautiful, their meals more delicious and their bus drivers more distracted. Just take a look at the video after the jump to see what we mean.

While jostling through the hectic traffic of Rome (of course it's in Rome, where else?) this particular driver took the time to attempt to set up his email on a new smartphone while speaking to customer service on a second handheld device. That's right, this guy was rocking two phones at once while ferrying a load of people through the city streets.

Now, you may be wondering exactly how the mechanics of such a situation would play out. Our enterprising pilot took to steering the bus by using his elbows. According to The Guardian, the company that owns the bus service has suspended the driver pending a full investigation. Still, it's terrifying to know that this guy is likely still behind the wheel of his personal vehicle. Click past the break to see the full video for yourself.

      Give him a break. Italians talk with their hands.

      How was he not instantly fired? "Suspending following a full investigation"? How much investigating do you have to do.... they must have great unions over in Italy. Watch this guy back on the road driving buses in two months after the media attention is gone.

      He was talking to some technical support, that was helping him to configure the cellphone on the left hand.

        Stonato means out of tune. Maybe it was used in your grandmothers youth or in her part of Italy, but it does not mean crazy nor stupid.
