I think that will be from the chapter, "Terminally Bewildered"
Bit like the girl just after lunch.
"Why didn't the 12.45 "66" bus run ?"
"Yes it did"
"Well it wasn't there when I came out at 1.15"
" That's because it leaves at 12.45, that's the whole point of a timetable"
"Yes, well it needs to wait on Sat-Mon as I don't leave work until 1pm and get to the bus stop at 1.15 or I have a half hour to wait"
" if you live in Tilbury you could get a 73 or 83"
" They stop in the next road and it would mean a 15 min walk which is miles (Really), the 66 stops outside my house"
" You need a time machine love"
"You're not being much help"

Seriously BYM, you should collect all these stories and/or send them into the stand-up of your choice and hear them relayed to the rest of us. Second thoughts, keep them for your book, you could become like James Herriot! I'm sure you could find a way of interspersing these daft episodes against an uplifting backdrop of birds and the natural world, plus all your other interests. Next question, who will play you and Mrs BYM in the film/TV spin off?

Very true Margaid, or perhaps Noddy Holder from Slade, or Billy Connolly. Helen Mirren could be OH
I know the writer of Only Fools and Horses based a lot of the episodes on actual things that happened to him as a market trader, and the chandelier episode happened to a friend of his.
Some of the drivers can also provide their own stupidity as well.
I met OH on the bus by the way. It wasn't love at first sight, she said she thought "what in God's name is that driving the bus" :lol: :lol: :lol:
