I was waiting in Valliyur Booking office for boarding. I approached the booking agent since the bus has not reached on expected arrival time. I got the irresponsible answer and said this may have gone through bye pass, since you booked through online and you are the only person here. I was frustrated his reply. Anyway in another few minutes the bus reached the boarding point
