(inspired by Karen Cheng, whose blog was introduced to me by Zheng Joo)
Stepping on the train, I nonchalantly answered a call from Joan before spotting a seat next to an elderly old man in a blue shirt. I plonked down on the hard orange plastic seat, thinking that it was a really good seat, for it was next to a pole that I could hang on to if the train lurched too much to the left when it stopped, and there were two pretty harmless looking guys and a tudunged lady sleeping with her mouth open on the seats across from me.
Boy, I was so damn wrong.
The tudunged woman was really funny to watch, though. She'd snore loudly once in a while, drawing smirks from the people in the carriage we were in (me included). She honestly looked a little like Puan Kalsom, my Kajian Tempatan teacher when I was standard six, whose house, we were told, got broken into by a toyol
. That's an interesting story for another day.
The guy across from me - let's dub him Asshole A - was kind of thin and tall, with shaggy black hair falling loosely around his ears and a sort of fat chin. He was wearing a light blue-and-white striped polo shirt, dark jeans and battered, mud-splattered beige Converses with light blue laces. Talk about color coordination.
The guy sitting next to him - Asshole B - was the opposite of Asshole A. He was fat, short and his stomach was bulging from underneath his once-white polo tee. He had a mouth that I was certain could fit at least 2 McDonalds' BigMac burgers in, and a really loud pasar malam hawkerlike voice. He had really revolting shoes - they looked somewhat like Crocs, minus the holes, and they were leather. Can you say, fugly?
Both of them were talking loudly in Cantonese. When I sat down, Asshole A looked at me from behind his framed glasses. So did Asshole B, but I didn't really care, because it's usually normal if someone looks up at you when you sit down across from them.
I pulled out my iPod and plugged the earphones into my ears, but I didn't turn the music on yet. As soon as they thought I wasn't paying attention, Asshole A nudged his fat friend and they both smirked at me and said in Cantonese,
"Wah. Got iPod some more wanna sit train."
"Ya loh," his partner agreed.
Such utter stupid nonsense. Does it mean that i'm not entitled to the use of public transport if I have an iPod? Is there a fucking sign anywhere that says people who own iPods aren't allowed to board trains?
I gripped my iPod nano so hard (thank God the body's made out of titanium), it was all I could do to not throw it at them to wipe the smirks off their faces.
The both of them kept smirking at me periodically until I got off at the Taman Bahagia stop.
ASSHOLES SHOULD NOT
BE ALLOWED ON TRAINS.
Asshole A, I hope you get choked to death by a pair of iPod earphones one day.
Asshole B, I hope you get bigger and bigger until you can't even fit through the doors of the train we were in just now :)*****************
