I recounted my version of the Rishikesh story to a bunch of TMers on 
a tour bus that had run out of gas in England on the way tohave lunch 
at Mentmore Towers. Up until I told my story, we had been sitting 
around looking glum, while the driver calmly smoked a cigarette. 
After the 4th or 5th person went up to him and expressed extreme 
displeasure at his behavior or lackthereof, he walked to the nearest 
RAC phone booth about a mile away and someone came with a can of gas 
and got the bus started. If we hadn't bitched and moaned, he would 
have been quite happy to get paid for smoking cigarettes and doing 
nothing. Once we started complaining, he started moving. We found him 
quite amusing, actually.
