Read the story.


A Japanese businessman had a big surprise last Sunday when he got the wrong bus to the airport and missed his flight.

Zenko Kajiyama, 32, went to Waverley station to catch the bus to Edinburgh airport. He had a meeting the next day in London and

he wanted to catch the evening flight. When he saw a silver bus marked Club Class he got on it. Unfortunately the bus was for people going to a birthday party.

The people on the bus helped Mr Kajiyama with his bags and found him a seat.

He thought he was on the right bus until they stopped at a pub and everyone got

off. They asked Mr Kajiyama to join their party and so he followed them into the pub. When he looked at his watch he saw it was too late and that he had missed his

plane. At first he was very worried, but then he decided to stay in the pub. He had a

drink and danced to the music with the other members of the party. In the

end he went back to the house of one of his new friends and he slept on the

sofa. The next morning he took a taxi to the airport and flew to London, but he was

too late for his meeting.
