latest bus chatter

Post by bigyetiman » Thu Aug 16, 2018 3:48 pm

We have a very vocal lady get on our bus, she is very loud and always moaning. This morning she is on the phone haranguing the doctors, conversation which we could hear went something like this
" I bought a water sample in yesterday, and I want to know NOW if it is an infection or cystitis so I know if I need antibiotics or not" short silence as the receptionist is probably looking up her notes.
" what do you mean you can't see anything in my notes, I brought it in yesterday and I want the results now, well if you think they may not be back or entered up by the doctor yet, I suggest you start looking for them"
The bus is now totally silent.Then she says
" Yes I do suggest you look for them, and while you are doing it, you may be dealing with a bladder infection which is highly personal so don't you go discussing it with the other receptionists or anybody else for that matter"
That's ok love we all know now, so she doesn't have to tell anybody else.
Shame no one was at the doctors to see the receptionists face whilst this was going on

Ah, but you all weren't supposed to be listening! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
Wouldn't you love a sort of "mexican wave" type thing to go through the bus, with everyone (except the one on the phone!) sticking their fingers in their ears, and going "Lalalala!We're NOT LISTENING!" :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Next time she gets on the bus, ask her if she managed to get antibiotics for her infection "downstairs" :lol: :lol:

If she had an infection with bacteria that grew fast enough for the lab to have results that quickly, I sure as heck wouldn't want to be on a bus with her!!!

I don't think any bacteria would want to infect her either, it would be the kamikaze type She is the passenger from hell.

And the patient from hell - at least you only have her for a few minutes, I pity the staff at the surgery.

He could just join in the "lalalaing"! :mrgreen:

Or! A nice big notice on the bus saying "All phone conversations taking place on this bus are monitored and recorded, for security purposes. please do not discuss anything you would not wish made public." That'd fix 'em! :mrgreen:

That has to be the most entertaining bus anywhere. Can I buy a season ticket?

We have a bus here that takes two hours to get to Lerwick picking up en route. I have to travel on it because I’m not allowed to drive until Jan 4th. It picks up every kind of eccentric known to mankind ( including me, I guess ).

You can buy a monthly ticket Hen-Gen or a daily ticket or a weekly, and you can sample the delights of Tilbury, Lakeside, Brentwood, Ongar, Bluewater shopping centre in Kent. You could even get off a bus in Tilbury and get on the ferry to Gravesend.
I am always amazed at what people talk about on their phones, its as though they think they are in some personal bubble and no one else can hear a word of what they are saying.
Has anyone ever noticed that Chinese people always sound angry when on the phone, it must be the way they pronounce words in mandarin
We also have a collection of strange people that are bus obsessed and travel round on them all day and try to engage you in conversation, not much different to your buses really Hen-Gen.
Got a couple of days off, and at last today had the Battle of Britain Memorial flight go over house, OH was quite smug that she has witnessed this before, closely followed by Red Arrows, Bristol Blenheim and B 17 Flying Fortress (Sally B). God Bless the Eastbourne Air Show, and I will be there tomorrow.
