Car Park

An elderly couple get on the 14 at the RUH. He’s somewhat reserved and down-trodden, while she’s over-tall and plainly accustomed to getting her way. She’s also wearing a truly hideous coat

Over-tall lady: Is this the one for the car park?
Me: The car park?
OTL: The car park
Me: Not sure what you mean. This goes to Odd Down
OTL: (Rolling her eyes) Yes. Odd Down car park!
Me: (Penny drops) Oh, you mean the Park & Ride?
OTL: That’s what I said, the car park and ride
Me: Right. You need the 41. This is the 14
OTL: But this is the 41
Me: It’s not. This is a 14 going to Odd Down
OTL: I know. The car park and ride
Me: Ok, fine. Why don’t you get the 41 from that stop there?
OTL: (Stroppily) Alright
Her husband: (Conspiratorially, as they get off) It’s OK; she doesn’t listen to me either
Me: Really? Lawks
