Default Cherry Picking

A well-respected Supermod escorted me off his premises to the main bus stop.
We perused the timetable which suggested one every 10 minutes.
After musing whether they came regularly or randomly. we discussed what happened in practice: more passengers to pick up, slower the progress etc.
In due course, four buses arrived and doubled-parked in the allotted space for their tea-break.

A fifth approached.
"At least he hasn't got room to park, so you will get a bus".

WRONG

Full marks to anyone who can relate this to GPUto72.

For partial marks: bottleneck joke?
