So imagine you are a bus driver.

You have left the depo at 9:00 AM on the dot!

You arrive at the first stop, open the doors and pick up the 3 people waiting at the stop.

At the next stop 2 Adults and 3 Children get on.

The third stop - and twice as many people get off as get on. 2 People get on.

At the next stop the children get off with 1 adult.

At the final stop everyone has got to get off, the last person on the bus wanted to complement the driver and asked for his name.

What is the driver's name?
