It happened just this morning. I had to take a 6.15 bus from Seremban as I needed to be in HQ at 8.15a.m. Reason being? Work. Site visit.
I thought that I would never have the chance to go anywhere else besides just stay in the office and cry:P Well, thanks to the generous one, the "privilege" has been given and I was totally honoured!
When I entered the bus, everyone was looking at me peculiarly. It was as if they were not happy that I was in the bus - a fat new comer with unfamiliar face. But, I couldn't be bothered. What I was concerned about was the trip could save my time through the massive traffic jam. Please.
I asked questions since I was not confident with the my destination. I mean, certain buses stop only at certain bus stop. But, it seemed that the elderly women were not so keen to answer my question. Not only they frowned at me; scowled at me; they also looked at me disgustedly.
So? What did I do?
I asked the driver.
And the makcik who "kerekly" scolded me.
"Eehhhh...jangan kacau driver nieh boleh tak? You nieh ganggu laluan dia! Dia taulah kerja dia!"
Honestly, I wanted to ask this to the makcik,
"Driver nie boyfriend makcik ke? Kenapa marah sangat?"
Aku tetap diam.
