Was in Auckland years ago, just got off the bus from the airport and this beach ball shaped girl in a bright uniform (tourist helper type person) came up to me and asked if she could help me. I said yes please can you tell me how to get to my hotel? Showing her an out of scale tourist map. She said sure just take the next bus and tell the driver the hotel name, he'll let you know when to get off. I then asked her if it was in walking distance and she assured me it was way too far to walk. I waited about 15 minutes for a bus, got on and told the driver the hotel name. He gave me an odd look. The bus pulled out and then stopped no more than 100 metres from where I got on, here you go said the bus driver. Yeah too far to walk for you you fat but helpful person.
