Vous êtes très aimable Kory, je parle souvent le français, c'était la seule leçon intéressante à mon école, ma femme est surpris quand nous sommes à La République.
Dit-elle, "je pensais que tout était un chauffeur de taxi, pas un linguiste!"
LOL! (or: rire à haute voix according to google translate) )

Sorry that was a hideous attempt - and I deserve un Frapez avec La Poele
Phew glad that is cleared up
Actually there may be some money in being a two bob taxi driver, if you follow L' Autobus C10
Question No: 2014/1214
Poor performance on the C10 bus route has been a subject of much discussion on the SE1 website forum recently, including an incident whereby frustrated passengers refused to get off a C10 which had terminated early at Elephant and Castle in the evening rush hour, instead of continuing through Rotherhithe. I appreciate that TfL are making efforts to improve the service in the morning but it seems a further more large scale review is required. Please ask TfL to instigate this.

There was obviously some bunching of buses going on that evening, so the driver was asked to stop short and turn around to even out the service. It might have been better for the passengers on board for the bus to continue, but the result is that the service overall continues to be badly spaced.
