where is my bus !

I had to go to some place the other day and since I don’t have any personal vehicle I decided to take a bus (I didn’t have any other choice but I’ll still call it My decision.. reflects better on my self-respect you see ! ).On top of everything I had no idea of the timing of the bus all I knew was the number of the bus (courtesy: a friend) I had to take and that it was notorious for being off schedule (courtesy: the same friend  ...its kind off funny that the guy didn’t actually knew the timings of the bus but still knew that it usually ran off schedule). So I reach the bus stand with quite some time to spare. I am standing there with earphones in my ears listening to "Rock n roll damnation" by AC-DC. I have heard this song like hundreds of times n even though it’s quite a good number, I felt like doing something else for a change. Observe around a little bit, eavesdrop someone if I have to(I might even get a blog post out of it) Here is what I observed ;

  •  Your average bus stand
  •  a couple of seats (not much people sitting though)
  •  bus schedule chart (it seemed i had quite some time to wait for my bus ...  and who knows if it plans on keeping its reputation  intact ) ..
  • a young couple (newly married I presume)
  • a hot damsel  (I respect women a lot! I really do  ..but this was definitely a damsel )

  • (who else?)... a duo of father n son (a 30 something man with 6 or 7 or maybe 8 year old kid)

well well well! What do we have? here a guy (better call him a hunk ... almost 6’4”, broad shoulder .. is that a Thunderbird i see him riding .. Yeah definitely hunk material) ... seems like he has eyes for our damsel (back of big-boy ... already taken)...

And a couple of more uninteresting looking people (possibly bloggers ...)

let’s start with the couple so I take random steps towards them (keeping earphones in my ears but music player turned off .. sneaky aren’t I ? )

they keep on talking as if I am no threat to their privacy. Now comfortably standing in their vocal zone (or I thought so) I move my shoulders to some imaginary rhythm assuring them of my indifference towards their conversation. The lady actually seemed upset (no my presence does not cause such emotions in girls) she was more mumbling then actually speaking (speak up lady! I got a potential blog post on my hands here) So I move in a little closer (still acting indifferent to their chat .... they too didn’t seem to care) yeah definitely the lady was upset here are a few sentences i heard out of that mumbling (the man was also mumbling .. speak up buddy be a man) but it isn’t rocket science  to make out the meaning.

"I will leave the house next time she talks like that to me"
"no she always does that"
"but she is my mother"
"we must respect her"
" n who am i a nobody ?"
"its not like that"

(Seemed a couple right out of some daily soap ... call ekta kapoor ... i am not even claiming the reward on this one... )

Oh well the bus is here ... (go people get up on it…  Run… Scram…  Start walking if you are not.. then I am)

Number 6A…  where is my bus? ... Well I am keeping my promise.. Showing as if taking a look at the bus's number I got the hell way from the couple (happy 25th anniversary to you two)...I think a few minutes of blank staring at the damsel might get my mind back on track ... what the hell!! The hunk freak (why would someone want to be that tall anyways).. Seemed to have moved (towards my damsel) good for me that damsel didn’t seem to be interested

Back to the mission.. What’s the father son duo upto ?

at least I won’t have to go stealth like before (an effort wasted i call it) on these guys

here goes nothing ..i move in (making it look like i need to check the schedule again ...i know i am sneaky  )
 ohk! the kid is pestering his dad for a new bicycle the usual words

" no I want it now"
" I’ll get u one on your birthday "
"no .. no birthday "
"all my friends have one n i want one"
"ok will get u one at this month’s payment"

cute kid.... has a good vocal too ... (hear that mumbling man ...that is how men talk...I say the kid deserves the bike just for that good vocal) hey the bus is here ..it was about time anyway... 9C  where is my bus ? ... at least the couple got on it (leave mumblers ... give a thumbs up to the mom-in-law from me) where is the damsel now .. There she is

WTF!... they are talking! ..The freak is talking with my gal!...she seemed a girl with class she cant be interested in some freak like him ... (6'4" .. that’s  like an over grown weed)

No! She wont go with you ... you freak (just look at that freak offering a lift to her)

Where is the freakin bus when u need one... There it is  ... good luck next time big-guy that at is definitely her bus ... "girl’s college” written on the bus that’s definitely hers  ... it has to be

No! She can’t leave with him ... how can she.. think of your parents, our culture, at least think of the annual payment you made for the bus ... money doesn’t grow on the tree does it .. go on leave if you want see if i care... don’t come back to me if something happens)

 She left with the freak!

Where is my God-damn bus! 

Oh there it is! (on time )
