Whilst driving with a friend in Ayrshire, a bus passed us going in the opposite direction.
" Look at that, " my friend said. " That bus says it's going to Sorn, and that's the wrong direction for Sorn"
I should explain Sorn is a small town in Ayrshire, which, amongst other things, sports quite a nice castle ( and not much else).
I looked at my friend somewhat quizzically.
" Why do you think that?"
" Well, I know the way to Sorn, and that's not it."
"No, I meant what makes you think it's going to Sorn?"
" The sign on the front"
I shook my head.
" No - I'm sorry. It actually said " Sorry not in service" "
I got out of the car as soon as I decently could.
