5 types of people you meet in the bus.

  1. The one who comes and stands beside you, and makes all kinds of sad faces in hopes that you will take pity on them and give up your seat.

And you have to pretend to not see them, because you were standing for more than 20 minutes at the bus stop, because you wanted a place to sit on the bus and if they think you are going to give up your seat after THAT, they are very much mistaken. Unless, it is an old person or a pregnant lady, in which case you will give up your seat gladly because you are a nice person.

  1. The one that hogs the seat.

And you have to sit there in the tiny space they provide you, clenching your teeth and cursing to yourself.

  1. The creep who keeps staring at you the whole time and smirking.

You feel like punching his face, or at the very least cursing him, but you can’t. Why? Because you are in public – the place where it’s okay for people to stare at you creepily, but if you do/say something about it, you are a “total bitch.”

  1. The one who comes running from the other end of the bus, as soon as someone gets up from their seat, and pushes you out of the way to sit there even though you were standing RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE SEAT.
  1. The one that comes and asks you if the bus is going to a particular place even though it is written very clearly on the board that the bus is, in fact, going to that very same place.

And since you can’t do anything about them, you settle for are-you-kidding-me looks instead.

      1. I can’t stop smiling on how similar our situations are 😀 One day, I met a girl who was reading Aleph of Paulo Coelho and it was great talking about books & TV series with her. But forgot to get her contact 😀 We never know, what kind of journey we are going to have today 😉

      2. I didn’t ask the girl for her contact 😦 I should be the one sobbing 😀 Just know her name(read first name,which is very common) 😛 Finding someone reading books in bus is very rare, but possible. Wait for your turn, someone will turn up 😛

      3. That will be kind of personal 😛 But, I don’t even remember how she looked because she was sitting in the front seat and we were talking over her shoulder 😉 This incident was like 1 and a half years back 😀 Long way back 😉

  1. Guy no. 4. The audacity I tell you! I also seem to have a problem with women who sit in men’s seats and won’t budge. I mean, I don’t mind standing but don’t make such a fuss when men sit in the ladies’ seats too.

  2. I take the busy commuter train rather than the bus every day, but some of the personality types you describe are the same.

    Having said that, I was a little confused about one thing you mentioned. Something to do with giving up a seat… Hmm… seats… Yes, they do sound vaguely familiar. I think I may have heard of those somewhere before. Never seen one myself, though.

  3. Hahaha this is spot on. I used to have to share a seat with someone on trips who would always say, “I love sitting by you. I need one and a half seats and you only take up half!” But no, I take up a whole seat because I paid for it!

  4. Hahahahahahahahahahahahhahaha
    You cracked me up.
    Even though I don’t travel by the Bus all that often like you seem to do,seeing as my college is only a 7 minute walk from my PG(thank God for that*relieved sigh*), I do have to use a bus every couple of weeks when I gotta come back home. Annnnnd,I can vouch for this. I have experienced this in those far stretched, unfortunate 2 hours.
    Really. The creep factor keeps on rising. The rushing and waiting on your head, I have experienced on the metro though.*widens her eyes*

      1. I do, too. But by the train.:D
        Bus and cars make me pukey. So,I generally can’t enjoy all that much,you see. I am trying to keep my last meal down. And,thus can’t concentrate on my surroundings. *sighs*
        But yeah. Traveling is kinda fun,I agree.:D

  5. Haha. I’ve met all those kinds of people in my daily commute. And there is one more, people who produce a ₹500 note for a ₹6 ticket. Then there is no limit for the conductor’s anger.
