On Friday morning, I boarded 854 as usual. It was crowded and my usual seat was occupied so I had to seat at the back (X in the picture below).
After waving to my mum and the bus was on the CTE, I tuned in to my iPod touch to catch up on my show.
When the bus reached the 2nd last bus stop, a hand suddenly blocked the screen and waved. I was like, “What the…!”
Shocked, I looked up and this man was waving and smiling at me (seated at Y). Okay, I am bad with faces and names so I thought he was someone I know, just that I didn’t recognise him. But DEH!!!
He motioned for me to removed my earphones and I stupidly did. He went, “Can I know what show that is?”
At this point, I can’t decide if he was trying to hit on me (I used to get that alot) or was he genuinely interested to know (but I was at some boring part!). So I scowled at him and gave him the death stare. He literally drew back.
I decided to be nice and went, “It’s called, ‘Tree with Deep Roots” and the chinese name is called, ” 树大根深”.” At which point, he gave me this funny look. Like I was kidding him.
WAH LAO! I really felt like punching him.
a) Obviously, you have peeking over my shoulders the ENTIRE journey. Rude much?
b) You interrupted my show!
c) WHAT! The show name is funny! Why are you giving me the “Is she crazy?” look!
URGH! Anyway, he tried to ask some more questions but I couldn’t be bothered. I plucked in my earphones before he can say anything and went back to my show.
Seriously. Weird people on the bus. Meh.
