I hate people who think they are the only ones sitting in a company bus. This girl on a seat behind mine was playing Enrique’s ’Be with me’ remix. Also there was this stupid Radio Mirchi playing in the bus where RJ’s talk far more than they play songs. I asked her to please put on her earphones. She stared at me blankly for 5 whole secs and said she doesn’t have any earphones; and she refused to stop playing the song too. I mean how bad can it get? That gave me a headache for an entire hour in the morning.
Ladies and Gentlemen, let me introduce you to the most irritating, obnoxious, rudest and meanest people of all in Pune city. And this is from my years and years (ahem) of experience.
Please applaud for the Rickshaw wala’s of Pune. They are the ones who think they own the city. They refuse to start the meter, they refuse to show you the charge card and they argue with you on the top of their voices.
I went to this really really really really crowded Laxmi Road yesterday evening. As I was about to park my bike, this rickshaw coming from the opposite side blocked my way so that I couldn’t turn my bike to park. Although he was coming from the wrong side of the road I politely asked him to back off his rickshaw a little so that I could park my bike. He flatly refused. He started shouting and arguing in a loud voice. We held up the traffic for at least 5 mins. Finally someone broke it off, chided the guy and some how arranged for me to park my bike. The guy mouthed some bad word, which I couldn’t quite make out, before leaving. I showed him my middle finger much to the amusement of a very elderly gentleman standing on the footpath. He was sweet enough not to give me any hard looks. You know the ones elderly people give that says, ’oh my god, today’s generation.’
I am so fed up with the weather. It is very very very cold (by Pune standards) in the morning and the evening, but it is very very hot in the afternoon. This drastic weather change is taking a toll on my health.
I just realized my manager is very selfish in his own quite little way, the kind which harms others.
Last week I had to go to the office at 10 in the night and my manager arranged a cab for me. But after a recent cab incident, where a girl was raped and killed by the cab driver, obviously I said I need a security guard with me. That’s the protocol anyway, I need not ask for it. But he refused. He said nothing will happen and he’ll take responsibility if anything does happen. What do I do with your fucking responsibility asshole if something happens to me?
Obviously I was in a bad mood when I wrote this. I am okay now, I think.
