Room 101 Bus Rant

Extracts from this document...


´╗┐Room 101 After much thought, I have decided that what I would like to be put in Room 101 are certain annoying people on buses. People who sit next to you on an empty bus, people who talk loudly on their phone and people who try to talk to you when you are clearly not in the mood are three examples of this. I beg, I demand, I implore you to join me in agreeing that these people are what ruins public transport for us hard-working citizens.

For the hardworking ones of us, this is the only time away from work and family where we have time to do what we want without having to deal with anyone else. We are not rude. We just need solace. When I am quite clearly listening to my iPod, and my body language definitely says ?leave me alone', why do they keep talking to me? Trying with small talk is fine; I understand that, but to constantly push conversation? Rude. Now, I?m not an unreasonable person, and I have nothing against your average commuter, but these people are what ruin your journey that could otherwise be a pleasant experience.
