By really famous, I mean those that touch all our lives, have done for years, and probably will for a long time to come. I don’t mean those flash-in-the-pan starlets on TV etc.
To start I’d like to give special mention to the Bus Uncle. If you’ve ever been in or out of CKS airport, you know the guy. He’s worked for Taiwan Motor Bus Co. since the wheel itself was invented. (That was a Taiwanese invention if you didn’t know). He’s the who actually does his job, making sure everyone knows which bus to get on, where the buses are going to stop, which luggage compartment people should stash their suitcases in and so on. He’s heavyset, overweight, wears glasses, has a terrible haircut, looks generally dishevelled, and takes shit from noone. His voice is monotonous and droning after having delivered the same lecture on the bus system a hundred times a day, six days a week, since the airport was built. That voice carries throughout the arrivals side of the old terminal building and there is no doubt in anyone’s mind that HE IS IN CHARGE. A living legend.
