During our Human biology class, two quite good looking senior female students came to our class to invite us to a party that is held tomorrow at a local pub. They were selling tickets, of course. I don’t mind that. They need to raise money for some events to be - like the greeting of “fresh meat”. I don’t know what they need to expand so much money, but hey, it’s their money.
What ticked me off was the argument that we should attend so that we can dance and meet each other. The same chick was few hours earlier on the bus next to me. Didn’t look like she wanted to meet me, or dance. Granted, it was the bus, and space for dance floor was a bit limiting.
Which takes me to my next point. Why do people need excuses to meet new people? Why do you need to go somewhere, pay money to get intoxicated in order to meet new people? Take off your iPod and talk to the person next to you. Plenty of people on the bus, and most people are usualyl silent, unless traveling together. In my opinion, that’s really sad - just shows how close and anti-social we really are.
Another bus observation. I can barely retain myself not speaking out. When I board the bus in the morning, it’s almost end of the line - about 15km to go, so the bus is usually pretty crowded. There are always a few seats left, though. So people start boarding, me included, and some will move to the window side (while some are already there), and a lot of people keep their bags on the seat facing the hall. And what’s interesting, they rarely move it. They just play dumb and hope that you’ll pass them. You need to explicitly ask them - hey, can you take your motherfucking bags into your lap… please?
I never asked them if the seat is free (the mother fucking bags, lady, move them) - I just stand and mind my own business.
And we’re suppose to go to the army, carry guns and die for these people? Fat chance, amigos.
I have been contemplating of bringing some comedy to the bus - by taking a megaphone and asking the person with the bags to please move them so I can sit. I would also have my pepper spray handy.
