Travel or Blah blah blah…

All bags packed. Final sanity done to make sure nothing is left back. All To Do items checked! And there comes my train, I go and check the passenger chart just to make sure my name is there, hell no, checking it to try my luck and see whether there is any 22 F sitting in my bay next to my berth! Shouting Yay inside my heart, I see a 21 F on the chart and I walk fast towards my berth just to see a cute girl sitting next to the window and giving a smile seeing me with the huge bags which I am carrying with a lot of difficulty. And I get settled down and practicing my pick up lines inside, look up and she says Hi!



******************************BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP*****************************


Arghhh, it was another dream which never comes true! Yes, I have traveled many times in almost all modes of transport from Bus, trains to flights but it never happens. You know, it never happens. I know many of my friends are so happy that it never happened with me. I am equally happy that it never happened with you bastards!! 😀

Never a girl of your age or a little younger never travels right next to your berth. You hear stories of friends of friends hooking up with girls or girls hooking up with guys whom they had met on some travel but damn that guy or that friend is never you! Call it Murphy’s law or Just Your Luck but you THE TRAVEL never happens.

Call it frustration or call it being jobless (Being Vetti ;)) I was just sitting on the couch sipping a bear trying to classify the co-travelers whom I usually meet on my travel.

Group: 1: The I don’t give a Fuck type!

These people are more common on Bus travel or train travel. They are the people who usually don’t give a fuck what you think or what you feel. They will be the über cool travelers, who the moment they enter the train, change to their dhoti’s or lungis and will be roaming around in their vests (baniyans!). They yawn right on your face (gets worse when they have not brushed or the travel is for more than 24 hours). They eat like they have never seen food before. They talk loud on phone. They keep playing music on their Carbon mobile so that none else sleeps. They keep their slippers over the fan and they never switch off the lights! Good air travel is faster, depriving people time to change and be comfortable,  else you will get to meet these cool people there too!

Group:2: National Snoring competition winners!

Yes, I don’t think I need to elaborate on this one. Any mode of transport, you can see for sure some person who snores. Who snores to bring the entire roof down. Who snores in DTS effect and you feel like there is some kind of surround sound so that you keep hearing it. They follow a pattern as well in snoring, after all, you feel they must be some national award winners in snoring. Sometimes, it reduces and you try to doze off they increase their decibel. There you lie down without sleep, wondering why there is no Olympic event for snoring!

Group:3: Senior Citizens!

Now don’t bring a frown on your faces. I know it’s the age but still accept it guys, it’s hard to travel to with old people. The only F, if there is any F near your berth in the passenger chart, will be 50 or 60 years old! They either keep coughing or they keep wanna switch off the lights even if they are off or they keep doing the sshhh or they have a bad cold! Yes you help them and all that stuff but seriously its hard every time to travel with Senior citizens who want to exchange their seats or who wanna help them with their luggage.

Group:4: Crying Babies!!

And this is one common thing which everyone will hate. I mean everyone except the parent of the baby. Sometimes it feels like as if the baby is just there staring at you, waiting for you to fall asleep and just when you are about to get into deep sleep the line between being awake and sleeping then the baby cries. It cries so hard that it desperately wants you to get out of the pleasure of sleeping. And it turns out every time the baby wins. Next time, I am going to walk up to the baby and say I give up, you kids win. I am not sleeping in my travel anymore. The worse part, the cry war begins if there are more than one kid, each trying to out beat the other in decibel levels!

Group:5: The Rest!

Apart from the above prominent one’s the other miscellaneous ones are like the Window starers, the Washroom users (I mean frequent use, really frequent), the nonstop nonsense makers, the XXL’ers, the girl whom you wished didn’t sit next to you and the girl that you wish will wake up from her sleep.

There maybe many more types but I feel these are the most annoying and standing out types!

To all those lucky bastards out there I give a fuck!

  6. Good one Raak…everyone can sympathize with u on this topic,coz travel is unavoidable!My least favorite fellow travelers r (1) when im travelling alone, the ones who try to strike unnecessary conversation when I’m tryin to listen to music or sleep (2)when im travelling with a group,the ones who keep shushing and complaining!!!
