Part 1 of Why me -4
I am telling you, this is like the worst thing ever…It seems fate wants me to get more and more embarrassed everytime
So, today R’s bus is late…super late..remember how I told about the 5 minutes gap between her bus and mine..well that 5 minutes are past and her bus is yet to be seen… see another bus of her school pass by and then I call up her bus conductor..and he is like oh R’s mom..come ahead come ahead…her bus broke down today and I am in another bus..so I pick up R, her bag, her waterbag, my bag, my umbrella (remember kajol in that DDLJ scene where she is running behind the train with her truck load worth of luggage!) and I run…The bus is ahead and they say that we will go..you go and catch your bus…..I see my bus coming on the other side of the road..I give R to them in their arms and then run across (thankfully there are no vehicles on the road) and I wave like crazy to the driver..he gets bugged and shows me his hand asking me to move aside…
He thankfully stops and when I get in the whole bus is looking draggers at me
DONT DO THAT AGAIN one lady tells me
I am a bit confused…what I ask
dont stop the bus in the middle like that…its not possible for us to stop for every one like this…
I get all red and my insides feel very weird..I felt like a six year old who gets scolded for doing something really really bad…I felt awful…I am like okie sorry…I felt so awful..and I am still feeling bad because the whole bus thinks that I am some kind of an idiot..everyday I have a new place to get in and then I seem to be troubling everyone..Gosh! I am really feeling low
and if this is not enough…go on to part 2
Part 2 of Why me? – 4
I get into the office, punch and then start taking the stairs…I sit on the 3rd floor…I am climbing climbing still thinking how I will face the crowd of the bus tomorrow, when I see the Head of Operations and Corporate Affairs (old man about 60 or so!)climbing the stairs..I am in no mood to be polite so I just pretend to look down and walk up..then I open the door of the stairs and something tells me that its not good to not say good morning so I look back, say good morning and then keep the door open for him…(He sits on the third floor as well)
He looks at me surprised and says have you changed your place?
Him: oh okie
and then starts to walk up the stairs..
I should have stopped at that na..but nahi RM is the nani ma of the whole wide world
RM: arent you going to come to your seat
Why the hell does it matter to me..he may want to go for stroll early in the morning..but like I said nahi..I am the nani ma na
Him: Errr…this is the second floor na
looks around everyone is staring…
RM: OH SHIT!
Yes dear blog..I shouted ‘oh shit’ in front of a man who is several years older to me and about 1000 designations higher..
He was shocked and said very politely ‘excuse me?’
and no I didnt even stop there
RM: arey no excuses, I think I am going crazy
He just walked away from me a bit faster!
Why me God, why me???
