A "busman's holiday" is a holiday spent by a bus driver travelling on a bus: it is no break from his usual routine. By analogy, anyone who spends his holiday doing his normal job is taking a "busman's holiday".

It is so named after coach drivers being paid to drive others to their holiday destinations.[1]
