Have you ever noticed how the weather seems to influence people’s mood? Well I have and that’s not a scientific fact. At l east were I am people seem in a better mood when the weather gets warmer ( thank goodness, if you ask me… I know you didn’t, but that’s how it is.)
It seems to give them a whole other outlook on life and not complain so much except for when they travel on the underground and then the action starts. Truly an event in it self.
There you sit feeling like you are in a sauna and the beads of sweat rolling off everyone’s face. Not a pretty sight to behold.
Then someone gets the idea to open a window ( truly a crime indeed). Then the action starts.. the first one starts with “it’s drafty “ and shuts the window, next its open again someone says it’s too cold, even though they look like they could pass-out from a heat stroke… it is simply too cold!!!
Another person gets on the train and opens the same window…if looks could kill.. that is their death because now someone shouts at them for opening the window and wanting to let some fresh air in. It seems like fresh air is dangerous nowadays. ( I bet you didn’t know that? If not just travel on the public transport in my city, and then you will know.)
The whole time I just sit there and enjoy the show and wonder what will happen next???? Sometimes I would love to ask the people “ what do you have against fresh air?” Maybe it’s better not to know the answer. I haven’t decided yet.
Though the other day I said something “ this is better than TV” to the person sitting next to me. They did not appreciate my humor, and asked me if I was okay… I thought to myself “ you idiot” , but instead just smiled at them which annoyed them more then the person opening the window. I knew that was borderline, so kept to myself the rest of the trip.
Another person sitting across from me started to complain about it being too warm in the wagon, but wouldn’t open the window because they were worried that there could be a retaliation from some passengers, so decide against the idea. Because those around him said “opening the window would cause cooler air to come into the wagon and could cause injuries”…. Don’t ask me the logic behind that, but it was definitely an original sentence.
Somehow, this opening and closing the window and of course complaining has become a national pastime on the local transport in my area. Which means when out and about make sure you have your own air conditioning system with you so as not to upset those near you and cause an argument.
Enjoy going on public transport!
