This is a question Complaining

I like writing letters of complaint to companies containing the words "premier league muppetry", if only to give the poor office workers a good laugh on an otherwise dull day. Have you ever complained? Did it work?

Yellow buses in Bournemouth
I sent the following email (fo' real) to the Yellow Bus company in Bournemouth after a particularly stressful ride to work a couple of years back:


Dear Morons,

which part of 'rush hour' do you not understand? Having had the misery of enduring a number of your services running between 8 and 9am from Southbourne, I would like to place on record my displeasure at having to share my personal space with a-the public in general and b-loads of sweaty grumpy miserable people with their heads in each other's armpits because your ingenious forward planning department somehow neglected to put a big enough fricking bus on the route. You're the people that I see legging it round Asda at 9.30pm on December 24, amazed that Christmas has crept up on you again, aren't you?

Admittedly, I have made some new friends thanks to your service - to be honest, I have been more intimate with people on that bus than I have been with most of my ex-girlfriends - but it is becoming slightly tiresome. It is only a matter of time before one of us becomes pregnant, dead, or worse.

To aid you, I have come up with an invention all of my own, and have attached a basic prototype sketch of it to this email. I am calling it the 'double decker bus'. It is like a normal bus, but with an extra layer (or 'deck', if you will) added to the top. You may notice in my picture I have drawn people with SMILEY FACES and also added in some EMPTY SPACE. Please forgive me if this is an over-use of artistic license, but hey - it's my drawing and I want to live a little.

Anyway, I have to go now - I've just discovered that the small mexican man who gets on in Boscombe is still in the pocket of my suit and I need to make sure that he gets to work okay, which is more than you twunts can be bothered to do.

Hugs and kisses,

Bappage

They emailed me back to say 'We do not respond to puerile and childish emails'

I responded one last time to say: 'you just did'.

End of correspondence. I never got a refund :-(

Would that have been a number 22,
or had they switched to the 1a, 1b, 1c setup by then?

Yellow busses are a bunch of fuckwits, they really are. It was standard practice to have a rammed single decker all day, only for them to wheel out a totally empty double decker at the evenings and weekends. Considering the prices they are charging these days, you could reasonably expect a stretch limo and a titwank.

It was the 1c
and just after they had changed over from the 22 system. They are brainless twunts almost to a man.

Some single deckers hold more.
Can't say in your case because I don't know the busses used -- but some single deckers have only a few seats less than double deckers (if any) and have more standing room, obviously.
I only know because a friend and I made a similar complain and were pointed at the "Seated" and "Standing" numbers.

the picture reminds me of...
those produced by Robin Cooper in his time waster letters.

Click to you.

The three word
reply to the reply sounds like something you couldn't get away with when you're young, but as you're an adult can do as you please.

You get a click for that, and if I could give you two, the second would be for : "It is only a matter of time before one of us becomes pregnant, dead, or worse." OR WORSE?! What poppycock. Superb!
