he may and he may not be. you would be surprised what can go on within parts of the private sector. the private sector, is not all picture perfect with everything done correctly with no inefficientsies or lazy staff. just like the public sector doesn't waste every penny it gets, isn't full of nothing but inefficientsiees and lazy good for nothing staff. there is a middle ground within both and they both have their faults. but of course you know this.

Not to be cheeky, but... why ask if it says it at the front?

Glad to see I'm not the only one who has had problems with Bus Eireann! Got a bus departing Busaras a while back, had the exact change, ticket machine in the bus, but the driver insisted I buy a ticket inside. I said there's only 2 minutes until departure time, will I make it alright. He said yeah no problem at all. Of course there was a queue but I was no more than 2/3 minutes. I walk out to see the bus leaving!! Ran after it just before it left Busaras and caught it. He then had the cheek to be annoyed at me for nearly missing it and for taking it so long!! I'll happily delay my trips to/from Dublin in favour of travelling with CityLink, and have been doing so in recent years.
