Does It Mean It?


Does this bus really mean what its destination sign says? So much for customer service!

    .not in service /sorry maybe?

  2. Andrew says:

    Patrick, the best way to ruin a joke is to explain it.

    This bus is in time out and it was staying there until it apologised.

  3. Andrew says:

    Or, it was making the point that it is not run by Veolia.

  4. James B says:

    The bus was just upset that the trains got a break over Christmas while it had to work through.

  5. patrick says:

    I should just shutup at times

  6. Im not sorry for reducing traffic congestion.

    I’m not sorry for holding up cars.

    I’m not sorry for demanding more integrated tickets

    ” ” for smashing into Government cars.

    ” ” I’m not sorry for being manufactured in New Zealand.

    Anyone know why NZ Bus buses say “Sorry not in service” but Birkenhead Transport ones say “Special”?

  8. Andrew says:

    Cause that’s how they did it in the ‘sixties! BTL is very old-school.

    Actually, some of their newer ones can say “Sorry not in service” but it depends on the driver.

  9. dj says:

    I like the Airport 380 buses which sometimes use the destination sign “Don’t follow me I’m lost too” when they are leaving the depot in the morning.

  10. Andy says:

    My Granddad would always tell me the story of how a bus almost cut him off and he looked back to see the sign displaying sorry. He genuinely thought the driver was apologising through the sign. Couldn’t bring myself to tell him it was just an out of service bus!

  11. Matthew says:

    “I was just getting ready to apologize!”
