postponed

16/02/2010 § 1 Comment

Remember when I was talking about following signs? Well, I guess I had a big one yesterday when my bus to Bariloche never showed up. No buses to Bariloche showed up. What was worse was that hundreds of people were waiting for a bus that would never come, the companies knew that the buses were not coming and, instead of informing everyone over the loud-speaker, the companies just let the customers try and figure out what was happening.

Things are definitely done differently, here in Argentina. I still don´t know what happened to the buses. Before getting my time of departure changed, I asked all the different companies if they had buses to Bariloche or, stretching it to Ñeuquen, a city about 300kms away. Nothing. There were absolutely no buses going south to anywhere except the beaches.

Instead of a refund, they switched my departure date to today, same time, same place, same arrival. I hope the same thing does not happen because that would be a real bummer.

Will keep everyone updated.

    Bummer, hope you have better luck today. Maybe the bus drivers decided not to work, partied to hard on weekend??? Only say this because listened to a company which lets the employees decide if they want to work that day or not, or do their job & go home, productivity increase by 34% & rising. Wishing you luck, good thing you’re not on a fixed scheduled.
