The More You Talk
… the less I hear.
This stupid woman annoyed me on the bus on the way home from work. I wasn’t really sitting to the side of the seat. I was sitting somewhat in the middle, with my bag and coat sort of hanging off me and hanging down the side.
The bus had stopped in front of a train station where a lot of people were getting on. Before I even had the chance to shift over so someone could sit, this stupid woman, on the phone, talking loudly in some foreign Asian language I could not decipher, literally plonked down on the seat… or what was visible of it.
She pretty much sat on my coat and half my bag. Bitch.
I know I didn’t move over. But it’s still stupid of her to literally bounce her ass down on the seat when my stuff was clearly there. /angry
I yanked at my coat that was sitting under her rear end, and I had to yank it a second time before she realised she was sitting on my stuff. Still on the phone, she finally moved and got her rear end off my stuff.
For the thirty minutes she was sitting next to me, I was very annoyed. She was on the phone most of the time. Normally this wouldn’t have annoyed me but she was talking really loudly. Listening to This Abyss by Armor For Sleep, I turned up the volume until it nearly hit its maximum.
Ben Jorgensen screaming in my ears was pretty satisfying, until I realised the control I had of his voice wasn’t much use when this woman was talking louder than he was singing. How rude.
I wanted to tell her to kindly fuck off, but that wasn’t an option. I was pretty relieved when she got off.
The bad news is that I’m still sick. :( My cold seems to have become worse (my nose more runny) and yesterday I lost my voice and when I spoke, it came out as a tiny whisper. I can talk now, but my throat still aches. 😢 It still feels like there is an amphibian raging at my sinuses.
Anyway, in other news, I’ve been posting a lot of photos on TwitPic lately, so I decided to get a DailyBooth account instead. Follow me if you have one! :) And follow Lilian too. /bounce
I’ve deactivated my spam plugin for now. I have a feeling it might be eating up people’s comments that are not spam. I’ll see how it goes for a day or so.
Things have been a little bit rough at home, but I don’t want to go into detail. I don’t really like writing about my family so much, because I don’t like being negative and I don’t like saying negative things about them. These things happen. I basically got into a number of arguments with my mum over things like my sleeping patterns (which I promise I will fix these holidays, I swear, they’ll be fantastic by Feburary!), computer addictions (self explanatory) and lack of participation in house chores (that one gets an excuse me? because honestly, I do a lot; my brother and dad barely do any!).
So that’s that. I might be putting up a new layout on the weekend… not too sure. I have a little bit of extra time this week because my work days have been shifted around. :)
