Goin' To Work & Comin' Back From Work

Observation of people going to work & getting home after work

[Going to Work]
Scene 1 - the bus
as usual the bus is packed... there's 2 difference
1. The bus is extremely full with people at every corner of the bus
2. some people taking too much space for themselves in the bus... & they don't want to move

[majority would do]
How people rush for the bus??.... like a swarm of bees coming
we know the saying goes "the early bird gets the worm"
meaning here when the bus comes who runs first gets to get in the bus first whether your pregnant or disabled (first come first serve)
but on the other hand... try checking at the back of the bus coz there's a freaking empty one with very little passengers in it... why are you shovering for a bus which is full???!!!
And, When told by bus driver it's full but there's an empty one behind, they scold or they'll give the face "M.Y.O.B" meaning here "Mind Your Own Business"
and the funny part later is they kinda feel stupid when the bus behind moves forward empty... and they go "takda nampak bus itu tadi pun!!!" complaining yahda yahda yahda... stupid isn't it when the bus driver actually told u SO!!!

scene 2 - the bus
what people would do to get the bus stopping inside??...
The BELL...
u know nowadays bell sounds come in a different variety
there's the Chinese one "ni hao, qing kai men" meaning "hello, kindly open the door"
or the ringing sound, the buzzing sound... etc etc... we have it all...
I guess people just love to press the bells...
1. it's like they are deaf or they dun understand the Chinese ring tone??!!

2. morning blurriness the "Oh Sh**!" situation I just woke up and I'm going to miss the stop and I press the bell... when in fact it's like already been press for the 3rd time.. sheesh... which it gets annoying...

3. The attitude of "I DON'T THINK THE DRIVER HEARD ME!" and they press and press and press... when in fact it's like there's still much distant before the bus stop or the bus doesn't stop there...

4. The blur situation... "Where am I ah?" and finally realise reach the bus stop already... and the bus stopped and is about to leave for the next stop and they go... ring! ring! ring!... and sometimes it's too late already too far to stop or not safe... THEY KEEP ON PRESSING... IT'S ANNOYING!!!

5. The "NOT SURE WHICH STOP" and they go press at every single stop coming nearer and go "SORRY WRONG STOP"...

6. The worst kind would be that your leaning on the freaking Post which has a bell and not noticing that they are pressing the bell ... and can scold back....

scene 3 - other vehicles [observed from inside a bus]
yes yes... everyone is in a rush to work...
but why can't you people just stick to your own lane???!!!!

What impatient and inconsiderate people would do to get their way?
{Motorcyclists}
1. They make a new path if they are blocked... breaking the rules going off street...

2. They slick and their ways in between vehicles fast... major cause of accidents

{other vehicles}
"POTONG LINE" where they see an opening they go charging in and LATER trying to fit back in to the actual lane... examples: emergency lanes and bus lanes or lanes that's going to another direction which causes another jam

scene 4 - the LRT
same same with the bus...
it's packed as well but it's constantly available...
WHY RUSH? PLAN YOUR TIME?

situation:-
1. "I'M LATE" huffing and puffing... runs when they hear the train is coming and manage to squeeze themselves in... which results to bags and clothing getting trapped in between the doors or sometimes their hands or butts; falling over people; getting hurt... and sometimes screaming "open the door" when the driver can't hear u or there's non (auto pilot).... really FUNNY

2. The "SMART way" board the opposite train to the station before this one because the Que line is long (long turn)... and hop on back to the actual lane before the others .... NOW THAT'S SMART!!! XD

[Going home from work]
same old routines for the bus, LRT and vehicles...
Even worst with the thoughts in their heads "I'm TIRED so I DON"T GIVE A DAMM"...

scene 5... the cab...
WITH A QUE LINE...
1. minority of people who are impatient and tries to cut ques... so please sound out your voices (it's call public humiliation??!!) if you don't... don't complain or whine because your too shy or too lazy to fight for your own rights...

2. the cab driver doesn't know there's a freaking queuing line or ignorant of it and picks up passengers who cuts the line... so again please sound out!!!

NO POINT OF COMPLAINING TO THE PERSON NEXT TO YOU COZ IT DOESN'T MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE... IT'S JUST GOING TO KEEP HAPPENING TO YOU!!! KAPPESH??!!

NO QUE LINE
people complain other people taking their cabs... STUPID... there's no Que so be smart, and make the extra effort of getting the cab IF there's a disabled person or a pregnant woman please be courteous give it to them... there's plenty more to go... and your not standing on one feet or blind etc etc and carrying a living soul in your body...

wow... that's a really long description and analogy of just taking a bus. I'm sure it'll educate people. Or perhaps bore them to death. Either way, helps society for the betterment of mankind. ^_^
