A scene at a bus stop

The Borneo Post - Good English - - News -

A bus stop hums with life and ac­tiv­ity. At peak hours there is a mad rush. School and col­lege stu­dents, of­fice go­ers and oth­ers jos­tle with each other to get into the buses.

All sorts of peo­ple can be seen at a bus stop. Some are im­pa­tient and look at their watches at ev­ery other sec­ond, other are wor­ried and fret. But there are some who wait pa­tiently. They even smile at oth­ers. Stu­dents stand in groups and talk.

It presents an op­por­tu­nity to watch hu­man na­ture. At most of the stops peo­ple try to stand in queues but as soon as a bus comes in, the queue breaks. Ev­ery­one just pushes and jos­tles. There is a lot of con­fu­sion then.

At peak hours peo­ple try to board a bus whether there is any space in it or not.

Trav­el­ling on foot­boards is very com­mon. It is very dan­ger­ous. But it does not de­ter any one. Pick-pock­ets have their day at such hours.
