but the idiots who harass station staff and bus attendants when there's tube trouble (and yes, it was well fucked tonight) *really do* expect them to pull busses out of their arses.|
I know this, because I asked one. She thought she was performing some sort of public service by whining at the attendant, because "people in this country don't complain enough". I replied that if she genuinely expected her complaints to acheive anything, she should direct them to a higher level, ie Ken. Apparently this concept fell outside her mental faculties and she stoppped talking at this point.
I, on the other hand, was extremely glad that I keep a bus guide in my rucksack.
And it also appears that, while it took me an extra hour to get home, I achieved this feat in about half the time it took the SMS I sent to let Karen know of the delay. (It just got here)
