Bus ~ 巴士

The shuttle bus was hot. Way hotter than the weather outside.

“Darn! The air-con is down! It’s so hot and stuffy!” someone standing behind me complains.

“Never mind, it’s just a short trip.” another said.

And through the whole 5 minutes trip, complaints of bus being hot and stuff came from that someone.

Thankfully I reached my destination before my tolerance for the broken human gramophone gave way and a comedy is staged.

As I alight from the bus, I saw the bus-driver taking advantage of the few seconds break he had before starting to drive the bus again to fan himself. I couldn’t help but to signal to him about the temperature of his bus and send a thumb-up encouragement to him.

There are many times where we only remembered our own discomfort, complaining about the situation, how bad the service is or how bad is the performance of that service staff.

However, just how many times does one see that while one is uncomfortable or the service level lapses, as they will sometimes, there are also efforts put in?

I think there are many times we do need to carry a mirror with us.
短程巴士车上好热。远远地比外头的气温还热多了。

“唉呀!冷气坏了!又热又闷!”站在我身后的某人抱怨。

“没关系,短程的,一下子就到了。”另一位答。

结果,短短五分钟车程就一直听到那位某人抱怨热了又抱怨闷。

还好,就在我对人型破损留音机的忍耐力未到沸腾点的时候,我到目的地了。

下车的时候,我见到司机先生在几秒钟的空档时间给自己煽点风。忍不住就给他打了个手势,为他加油。

很多时候,我们是记得自己的不舒服,抱怨自己的情况与服务有多糟或服务员有多差。

但我们又有多少次在自己觉得不舒服或服务水准差的时候,会想想别人也处于不舒服的状况,或是认同了服务员的付出与努力呢?

我想,很多时候,我们是需要时时在身上自备一面镜子的。
