hi there! yeah, sometimes there are annoying people, they talk to loud as if they are the only person inside the bus, i don't know if they intentionally do that just to get attention but you could do something, there's was one time, i was travelling early in the morning and hoping to catch few sleep since my travel will took me 5 hours, there was this two old fatty guys talking too loud, i really can stand it anymore and everybody was looking at them but i stand up the crowd and talk to this two old fatty guys and they shut up and toned down there voices, i earned a friend cause the lady sitting in my rear thanked me and we get to know each other...eeeyyy yeah!

If I can hear their voices then there is nothing much I can do other than listening to them. I hardly get nervous but I get bored while traveling by bus for an hour or so. That is when I listen to interesting conversations.

I really don't think you can help it. Sometimes, you just ended up listening to them especially if their voices are too loud. It gets annoying sometimes especially if all you wanted was a quiet and relaxing ride.

well, for me.. i cant help myself listen to them if they're quite near to me.. since were in the same bus, and if they are very noisy or they're the only who talk in the bus.. i cant help it but listen.. well, if i can see people talk too much, i'll let them talk. I think its not a big deal for me.

HAHAHAH! This is a good one. I depend on the city bus to get around. I admit there are times when I will let my nosiness out and listen to someones conversation. Sometimes I am amazed at the things people will talk about around other people! It gets really boring riding the bus alone, so this is good entertainement!!

[b]I figure they KNOW I can hear them, so why should they care if I listen? I mean, they should assume I am! So I don't view it as "nosiness." I mean, unless I'm creeping up & leaning in to hear them whisper, I'm not being nosy! Anyway it keeps me from getting bored. Maggiepie "WHERE'S THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE?"[/b]

I like listening to conversations, I even laugh when there's something funny about their topic.

Hi marianna45! Sometimes we cannot help but listen to the conversation of other passengers in a bus. There are times when they speak loudly that you, whether you like it or not, would end up hearing what they say. If I have my iPod, I would just turn the volume up so I won't have to listen to them especially if the discussion in irrelevant. If I can manage, then I would probably sleep.

Hi, marianna45. I will just ignore them. I will act like they are not even there. I will just focus my attention by looking out the window. Or, I will just listen to the radio that is on. I don't get nervous or bored when two people talk so much. I will just ignore them and continue to do just ignore them and act as if they are not even there on the bus.

I do not! And it especially drives me crazy waiting in line or sitting in a quiet restaurant or someplace where you can not get away from it!

it sure is something anybody and everybody within earshot would hear if a conversation happens in a bus. however, listening is a choice. i do listen if they're talking of interesting things. if it's plain gossip forget it .

It all depends on my mood. If i am tired or in a bad mood, it does get irritating to hear somebody converse loudly. But then sometimes it is fun to listen to people converse.

I can't help but hear some bus passengers conversations on the bus. I have heard some very funny things. A teenager called a man Sad Man Insane and he was talking about Saddam Husain. That was years ago but it was highly memorable because of the rhyme. Recently a group of teenagers were chatting really loudly. One of them said he asked a company for 1000 hats and wanted one as a sample. He kept the sample and canceled the order. The company wanted the sample hat back. He said that he was going to keep the hat. When someone talks endlessly and it is loud it can be a bit bothersome. I just put up with such an annoying person. I don't ever have the courage to ask him or her to "be quiet" and to say "shut up" would be rather rude.

I get very disturbed when other people talk in the bus. I don't get involved but I become alert. The last time I traveled in a bus people got so engrossed in a conversation and I noticed a woman being pick pocketed. I never join in their conversations. It is always a relif when I or they alight.

It should depands on what they talk, after all, sometimes some people talk somethings useful. In this situiation, you can listen to them and learn from them. And you can join them if that topic attracts you, right? When they disturb you, you can tell them . One early morning, I heard one girl calling loudly, so I told her and she said sorry. No one is perfect! When you are not satisfied with some things , just find a way to solve them.

[b]Unless they talk of illegal or dangerous things, or use filthy language, I'm never nervous. There are "people watchers" who enjoy nothing more than buying a cup of coffee & sitting at a sidewalk cafe, watching people just for amusement & learning. It's a hobby, I guess. Shrug.... I'm a people listener, I suppose you could say. When I'm in some closed area where others are speaking to one another, since I can't help but hear anyway, I just quietly listen, enjoying their conversation as if it were a radio program or some other entertainment. I see no harm in it, & it stops boredom. The only place where I object is in a theater! Maggiepie "WHERE'S THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE?"[/b]

I'm a quite person and don't like something noise when I was ride in a bus. But that is public places that we can't avoid so just ignore those people talking and talking about anything...Have a nice day!

I must say that when the conversation is interesting and I have something to learn out of it or to find out some valuable information, I don't mind. But if two people are very noisy when talking in a bus and keep on doing it too much, I will try to draw their attention they are disturbing me and others. Or the driver can be of help. If these are of no help, I will change my place or even the bus!

conversation in bus - It is better to learn to enjoy their conversation in bus than to get tired with them.
When I am in a bus, usually, I like to listen others' conversation. You see, as a public place, in a bus, it is unavoidable that there are some people who often talk with each other. Of course,we have no right to stop them continuing talking, so, I tend to listen their conversation carefully. It is better to learn to enjoy their experience than to get tired with them. Sometimes, I really feel lucky because there are still some people who like to "share" their personal experience with me.
