    Very common

    A. Everday several thugs come to ask people who sell hot dogs for protection money on this street.
    B. It's very common in my country when bus drivers sell bus tickets and drive at the same time.

    Are these sentences natural to say in conversations?

    Thank you so much

    More natural would be:

    A. Every day several thugs demand protection money from hot dog sellers on this street.

    B. It's very common in my country for bus drivers to sell tickets and drive at the same time.
