Recently I was in a bus and I observed that the bus felt alot like one I had been in before. The reason is very simple. In all journeys there are certain classes of people you’ll always meet.
The noisy ones who will always be on the phone. These ones wait till they board a bus before they begin to call all their friends and family members about the latest developments in their lives. If you pay attention, you’ll know their lives in summary.
Next to them are conversation-starters. These ones always bring up topical and controversial issues. They won’t let you have peace all through your trip.
Then there are those who seek to find love. These ones are very particular about sitting next to the opposite sex. They’ll want to know everything about you in the course of the trip.
Another set are the ones that know every shortcut and alternative route. They’ll not let you rest with stories of the many times they’ve plied the roads and gory details of those journeys.
Right next to them are the ones that love to sit close to the window but won’t want you to open it. I mean what’s your aim? To suffocate the whole bus? Why sit next to a window if you don’t want breeze?
Oh, and I almost forgot the sleepers. These ones just start sleeping as soon as they settle into their seats. They’ll inconvenience those sitting next to them and make the journey uncomfortable because they’ll always slouch on your shoulder. In fact, you have to keep adjusting to accommodate their weight and make conscientious efforts if you are to keep their head and breath away.
Which ones did I miss?
