I always take more than a curious interest in work-related mischief and this story the other day, courtesy of the Manchester Evening News, made me laugh.
The story concerns an out-of-service bus and how the word "SEX" denoted its destination.
A statement from the bus company after the incident went along the following lines - "This is a bit of festive high jinks that should not have happened and which the company does not condone. We will investigate what is behind this and those involved will be interviewed. We offer our apologies for any embarrassment caused ."
Judging by the comments that have been added to the article few people took offence at the mischief. The typical Mancunian humour included:
- How much is it to old'em?
- But did three come at once?
- Did they need a ticket to ride?!
