Being stuck in traffic is sometimes not so vexing. Especially if you are not in so much of a hurry and find yourself in a bus with interesting people, you can have a good laugh.
Another day i was in a bus to town and there was an interesting discussion on classic breakfast. They were talking about how some seemingly respectable men during the day are just drunk disasters at night to their wives and families. That is when i noticed the diversity of the people i was with on the bus. Some people were giggling and chatting with their seat mates, others looked disgusted and others couldn’t care less. They had issues of their own and had no mental room for deliberating on other people’s misdemeanour’s. Amused young people were busy on their phones presumably on a social network updating the world on what is currently tickling their fancy. Then there are always the vocal people who would die without being heard or getting attention, so a certain man started conversing with noone and everyone in his very loud voice. He said that the topic was nonsensical and that the station should be changed in very many words. He was patronising in his manner with tone and body language judgemental and implying that everyone else was inferior. People ignored him and some even shot the disapproving and irritated eye his way. The conductor, out of nowhere, just snapped and told the man that if he had a problem he should alight or buy his own car instead of disturbing people. He also told him that the fare catered for transport only not public speaking and if he desired to give a speech he should become a politician.
The other passengers were in stitches or unsuccessfully trying to suppress laughter. I personally was laughing my heart out. The loud man was in utter shock and just retreated further into his seat and said nothing more.
The trip to town seemed rather short that day. It was a nice way of starting the morning. As i alighted at my stage, i made a mental note to blog about it.
