I was in Zion National Park. There, to go past a certain point, you must ride one of their shuttle buses. It's a nice system and they run often and the stops are well marked, but signage is only in English. I was returning to the campgroup on the "down canyon" shuttle when the bus pulled into the next to the last stop. Waiting at the curb were about 30 people and there were few seats available on our bus.
So the 30 people start to squeeze their way onto the bus and the oh so patient driver tells everyone they must be behind the yellow line. With much jostling, that is accomplished and the driver closes the door. Before starting to move he announces, "down canyon shuttle, next..." and then from the back a voice with an Asian accent says, "down, No No No" and then something else in a language I don't understand.
Twenty-five people now start chattering and scurry off the bus. The last person off looks at the oh so patient driver who then points to the sign that reads, "up canyon shuttle stops here".
It reminded me of the old Keystone Cops routine where the patrol car stops at a stop sign, 10 cops get out, run around the patrol car and then re-enter the car and drive away -- all in that faster than normal, silent movie speed.
