In the last week I have been travelling in the BEST buses.. now don’t get me wrong its not that I have never travelled in a bus.. Paah!! Born n brought up in Mumbai travelling in local trains and buses like eating breathing and sleeping.. they are a part n parcel of life here..
Ok then why did I mention it now.. Duh!! cos this post is about travelling in buses.. (neva knew u guys were so silly 🙄 ) Sigh!! So back to the post.. owing to my exams for the past coupla days I have been travelling in buses and the time spent is almost 1-1.5hrs.. and me being me couldn’t help noticing the types of people around me..
So here goes my observations and the major types of travelers we meet in our journey –
Snoozers – they form a major chunk of the public that travels in public transports, train and buses alike… you know I pity them.. poor peeps must be having lots of khatmals aka bedbugs that don’t let them sleep at night.. so I guess they are trying to compensate the sleep that they missed out on.. the worst is when they fall all over u and drool on ur shoulders in the pretext of sleeping.. ugghh!!!!
VIPs – oh well they aren’t any politicos or actors or even a senior member of any group/institution or whatever.. they are just people who think they are VIPs.. they sit on the seats as if they own the bus.. they keep getting incessant calls that naturally disturb the snoozers and irk the fellow passangers.. they talk on the phone as if they are the MOST imp peeps on earth and most imp they talk loudly for all to hear.. (and peepl call me loudmouth 🙄 )
Watchers – naah naah they are not detectives or spies.. But hell yaa they do act like one 😛 They keep observing people all around them as if each one is a culprit or a possible criminal.. They are the ones who look jumpy, roving eyes.. Everyone who aboards/alights even moves from their seat and this person has hawk eyes on them.. 🙄
Fighter Cocks – as the name suggests.. They are just waiting to pounce on anyone who so much as freaking touches them unintentionally..They generally are straight faced/poker-faced.. Some of them have blood shot eyes as if they haven’t slept in ages.. or are under weed or some other drug.. 🙄
Whiners/Cribbers – as the name suggest all they do is crib and whine.. The weather, the bus conditions, roads, work, kids, spouse, the seat the window the railing.. baamm baamm baamm.. all they do is cry cry cry..
Whisperers – talk so softly u can hardly hear them.. Even a pin can be heard in silence compared to their voices.. Some of them belong to the koochiekooing club.. Who are always on phones/handsfree koochiekooing with their bf/gf blah blah..
School hours – well if you are lucky to travel during the school hours then you get the a whole jingbang of species.. The kids today aren’t naïve/innocent anymore.. You have bullys hidden in them..The whole lot of them buying tickets screaming at the conductor “ unkil mera pehle mera pehle” and jostling each other.. Pulling pushing bags.. Fighting for empty seats.. Poor conductor scolding them with “oi chup karo nai tho sab ko utaar doonga bus se”.. awww only thing left was him pulling his bacha-kucha hair…sigh!!!
Harmless souls – they are the best peeps to be travelling with.. These are peeps who are simple silent calm.. Minding their own business.. Listening to music or reading books.. Staring outside the window.. peeps who see a pregnant women or elderlies standing and make place for them.. Yep saintly souls.. 😀
So which of these are you…
And if you have come across anymore varieties.. be my guest and share the same in the comments section.. 😀
