Taking a public transportation on a daily basis is not only good for the environment but also for the pocket. I always take the bus to school every day. I find it more convenient and affordable for a student like me. Well, I don’t drive because I don’t have a car but the petrol costs would eat my weekly allowance and even if I had one, I’m still choosing the bus as a means for transportation. However sometimes I wished that I have one because I can’t help myself from almost dying once in a while when taking a bus!
This morning when I was on my way to the university, the bus seats were occupied except the seat beside me. So a woman around 40 took the seat and there the torture began! In the name of the holy cow she smells horrible, you know the combination of not taking a bath for a year and shit loads of perfumes-yes that’s the smell. The malodorous smell is so strong that it almost made me think that I might not get to school alive and that I should’ve used the emergency hammer and crushed the window and jumped off the bus and spit my lungs out in order to breathe. It also made me think that a biochemical warfare is going on or the bus has turned into a gas chamber. But seriously I also tried to focus my attention to other stuff like music and day dreaming and it didn’t work! The least I could do is to concentrate on not to vomit in the bus and hope that the woman will hop off the bus right away but no she didn’t. It turns out that she’s going to the university too! My lucky day… not!
