Bus people

It is common knowledge that I’m a Lagosian to the core; not like I don’t like the quiet and serenity of the country states but somehow when I’m back to Lagos; amidst the hustle and bustle, I still feel a sense of sanity when I’m back to Lagos. I like the shouting, car horns, silly innuendos that go on in conversations, the terrible customer service sometimes as opposed to the eager to please ones of the country people – I don’t condone it really but it just makes Lagos, Lagos – it’ll be a great deal to change this but it seems those “who don’t make it enough” have their anger thrust at those who have it made; especially the small young professionals as opposed to the over the counter sales person who is struggling to hit it big.

Why the preamble, as usual I like to study bus situations and lagos generally, and you wouldn’t believe me if I told you that all these talk is just to talk more about what bus life entails (Can’t wait to get my car soon though but for now I enjoy this life). One thing about me, I enjoy every situation no matter the emotion in it, I like to see the funny side of things; let’s talk bus people –
In the bus, exist a large community of people, divided into;

Activists: this sect believe in fighting for the rights of people, they are the ones who will ask if the conductor gave you back your change (balance); or if the person who was meant to move for you has done so – always looking for an opportunity to speak up without it turning into a fight. They usually work alongside the ♧ Troublemakers: who happen to be our next point of call a.k.a fighters. They fight for whatever cause and look for trouble incessantly – they turn any little thing into a fight and make sure the peace of the bus is nonexistent – escalating small nonsense into big wahala.
Next are the ♧ Political party members, theirs is to wonder and ponder about the reasons why the country is still where it is. Failures of the government, and how the country is meant to move forward. I get tired of this particular group of people because their arguments are tiring and very often exhausting.
The ♧ Financial directors like to be the ones who account for the bus fare in the absence of a conductor. They hassle the sleeping ones for their bus money, and complain about the lack of change; all the while giving account to the driver.
Instigators work alongside the trouble makers and activists, always look forward to bringing up an issue to deliver gladly into the laps of the troublemaker.
Blessed are ♧ the Peacemakers for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Keeping peace since the 0000 BC
The Passives and the Jesters belong in the same category; a sect just watch on, sleep or listen to their playlist while the latter exist as comedians to bring cheer to everyone on a gloomy day.

I love making a distinction between these people because it’s fun to watch them. I term myself the observer. a.k.a Watch Tower
