Perfect example today... Bumped in to an ex-First driver in Hereford Bus Station. He said he had heard a rumour a Leicester bus was in the City earlier in the day. To which I said, yes, that one... pointing to the large double-deck bus with "Leicester" written on the side, that was parked about 30-yards away from where we were stood!

Customer - "But it says Worcester on the front" (below the windscreen)
My reply - "there's an advert on the side for Gloucester Quays, but we don't go their either"
Once had a customer insisting I sell them a ticket for Droitwich when I was loading passengers for a 551 to Evesham. He said it says Droitwich on the back. On inspection I found an advert for "Droitwich Land Rover".

I hear on the grapevine the former Worcester 'Jersey Darts', currently working in Cornwall, are to be transferred to Scotland. Which depot or when I don't know.

Hmmm... When they transferred from FMR to Cornwall, 2 of the 6 didn't make the whole journey without breaking down. Cornwall to Scotland could be an optimistic journey! :lol:
