It's time for another service disruption, sorry public (yeah right)

The most powerful person in Bermuda isn't the Premier. It's not even the former Premier. It's the chief of the BIU.

It seems as though he's calling for some 'important' meeting that all members must attend, practically every month, without any regard for the people that need certain services.

And in true Bermudian tradition, when the meeting is called for at 10am, groups like the public transportation staff, they stop working at 9:15,... or earlier.

When challenged on why they're suspending service so early, the supervisor, a gruff bearded fellow (former driver, they must've promoted him) rudely replied with "It was on the news. Back by 12." That was his only message, repeated often. No suggestions of alternatives. No suggestions of calling taxis or minibuses. And these were mainly senior citizens and mothers with small children at the bus depot at this time, that he's treating with such disdain. "It was all over the news."

A lovely promotion for customer service, I dare say. Throw in some 'Buy Bermuda', too.

Well, I suppose the supervisor fella already "got his", so check ya later, old-timers.
