So the other day I was catching a bus. I cannot remember as to why I was catching the bus. I was probably heading to work. I imagine that that was indeed the case.
I was catching the bus to get to work. I think.
I was waiting for the bus so I could get to work. The bus arrived and I saw that someone was getting off so I waited for them to get off before I hopped on.
It seemed that the other people waiting at the bust stop did not seem to have the same priorities. One of them hopped on, saw that the person was getting off, paused for a brief moment and then walked past them. Then everyone else waiting walked passed the person trying to get off the bus, leading to them having wait before they could get off the bus.
Since when the fuck was it that people thought that the best action is to, instead of waiting for people to get off a vehicle, walk on and not let them get off until there’s space for them to get off the vehicle?
Where did people’s manners and patience go?
The fuck is wrong with these people?
I know it’s not a big issue, but it’s not that hard to be polite and show a little bit of respect for your fellow person and let them exit public transport before you decide to get onto public transport.
It is not that hard.
Now that I’ve said all that, I think I do know what is wrong with people who think that this is an appropriate action.
I think that people want it both ways. They want to be able to be as selfish and willingly oblivious to those around them so they can benefit themselves, regardless of how much of an inconvenience they make themselves whilst also wanting people to kowtow to them so that they themselves are not inconvenienced.
I have a suggestion for people who think that this is okay. Just one. For now.
How about you show a bit of respect for your fellow person and realise that you are as small and insignificant as everyone else on the planet?
I know that it’s pointless ranting, but this kind of behaviour really pisses me off.
