However, within ten minutes of you starting your journey, it starts pouring cats and dogs. As you get drenched, you can literally imagine the rain gods laughing at you. Mwahahaha!
After struggling to get to the ticket counter, suddenly seeing that the train/bus fare has been hiked, will really piss you off. You wonder what can justify this, as the bus/train is just as dirty and smelly, and there has been no improvement at all to the journey. In your eyes, there can be no bigger crime than this.
Newbies experience failure a lot more, and it takes a great deal of experience before you gain the skills to raise the probability of finding a place to rest you rear end. Maybe, they should create diploma courses for this stuff.
You're sure that you don't know them, and you don't want to either. But, by the time you reach your destination, you have enough information to write their biography.
Either way, conditions are appalling with every sneeze and fart, and your standards for personal hygiene are pushed to the limit, as every second of travel seems like an hour. Once you are at your destination, you just can't wait to get out of that torturous contraption fast enough.
In the stressful environment of a crowded bus/train, the last thing anyone needs is person who is talking on the phone at the top of their voice. This is especially a problem when the talker is a lady whose voice can break glass. You and every other passenger end up staring at each other, wondering who will have the guts to tell that idiot to keep it down.
But because the train stops for very short periods, you are always panicking that you might not be able to get back on, or get off the train when your stop actually comes.
The situation gets even more awkward and a little funny, when there are tiny kids who are staring, like it's the most fascinating thing they've ever seen.
But as always, you are stuck in traffic with other equally pissed-off travelers, and you know that there is enough stress and rage here to set off ten atomic bombs. Maybe, that would be for the best. At least you would be put out of this misery.
