Needs A Ticket Out Of Monday Morning

| Wales | Funny Names, Transportation

(I’m not quite awake yet and getting the bus to town.)

Me: “Single to [Village], please.”

Bus Driver: “This is [Village].”

Me: “Oh… sorry. Single to [Town], please.”

Bus Driver: “It’s okay. It’s Monday morning.”

Getting The Hobbit Price

| Canada | Money, Transportation

(I drive a public bus for a company that covers a large geographic area and several different modes of transportation. Because of that, we have multiple zones costing different fares depending on how far you are traveling, with the lowest adult fare being $2.75.)

Passenger: “How much is it?”

Me: “Where are you going to today?”

Passenger: *confused* “…There and back?”

Me: “…$2.75 sir.”

Needs To Be Coached On Buses

| Reykjavik, Iceland | Extra Stupid, Tourists/Travel, Transportation

Me: “These are your tickets, the bus is right out here—” *gestures to the door with a HUGE departures sign over it* “—and it will be marked with the tour name in the front window.”

Customer: “Thank you.” *the customer walks away, turns around and walks back to me* “Sorry, which bus is it?”

Me: “The bus is right out there and it’s the only one out on the lot.”

Customer: “Thank you.”

(Again he walks off, he walks out into the lot stares at THE ONLY BUS that’s there and then walks back to me.)

Customer: “Sorry, what number will be on the bus?”

Me: “The bus has the tour name in the front window and it’s the only bus departing at the moment.”

(The customer walked off for the third time, walked towards the bus, walked around the bus, and had almost walked off, when the driver caught up with him and escorted him onto the bus.)
