Where did all the buses go?

This morning I waited forty-five minutes for a bus to turn up. The live-timer kept advertising buses but none ever actually came. It wasn't just heading towards North Greenwich and Blackheath either, I only saw one going the other way.

The bus stop was completely mobbed by the time a 486 finally turned up, it must have overtaken another one just before getting to us as I was convinced the bus would be too full to stop; but it was nearly empty. Still didn't get a seat though. Serves me right for sitting down and waiting I suppose instead of standing eagerly by the bus stop.
