And you folks think I make this up?
“Hello?”

“Yes, ummm, Hello. My name is Joe and I was wondering if you could give me some information. I noticed that on Union Deposit Road, at the entrance to the Twelve Trees Housing complex, there is a bus stop sign. Could you tell me which bus stops there and at what time?”

“No bus stops at Twelve Trees.”

“I see, but there’s a sign.”

“Doesn’t matter. No bus stops there.”

“Did a bus ever stop there?”

“Don’t know. Is there anything else?”

“Yes, where is the closest bus stop to Twelve Trees?”

“That would be the stop on Four Seasons Dr. The #14 bus stops there at 7:15 AM. “

“I looked for that stop but I couldn’t find it.”

“That’s because there’s no sign.”

“O-Kaaay. The bus stops on Four Seasons Drive where there is no sign but the bus doesn’t stop at Twelve Trees where there is a sign?”

“Yep.”

“Don’t you think somebody should move the sign from Twelve Trees to Four Seasons Drive.”

“Can’t.”

“Why not?”

“Because Twelve Trees is an official bus stop.”

“But the bus doesn’t stop there!”

“Might in the future.”

“When?”

“Can’t say.”

“Just out of curiosity, do you ride the bus to work?”

“Are you kidding?”
