The Horrible Bus experience
January 19, 2012 3:38am CST
Early this morning (January 18, 2011) I took the bus to Siocon. It was pretty cramped and air cooled. So if someone shuts a window, there was less ventilation. And people were smoking n the bus. I know I shouldn't complain, I'm a smoker myself. I just have enough consideration for kids and non smokers in confined places. There were 6 of us riding at the backmost part of the bus and I was wedged in between this heavy set drunk and a father with a very fussy kid who kept moving and moving like a little wild animal. The drunk was leaning heavily on me, crushing me against the dad and the kid. So I gently pushed back. Kids, don't try this at home. Drunks are known to be violent when in their inebriated state. I felt him push back, So I squared myself up and acted as a barrier between him and the dad. To add a little bit more discomfort, I lodged my shoulder against his ribcage. Every bump we encountered must've been hell for him as he banged into my shoulder time and again. That was a 5 hour trip.

What an experience!!! There were many discomforts for one who prefers quiet during the journey.. the kids, if not controlled always prove troublesome.. drunkards are always bad to tolerate, when they are not asleep... Smoking in bus, should be totally banned... That is too risky... I am sorry for the problems you went thruough... Next time, don't board a crowded bus.. Take care...
