Honestly with what just happened, I deserve a PhD in Bus Hustleology. Abeg, no yab me. 😌😌😌 But wait, what is happening in this Lagos? The traffic has become a giant Hydra swallowing up everyone and everything.
Anyways, back to the gist. So, I have been at the bus stop for over 40minutes waiting for bus to come. Time to time, I’d look over and count the people waiting with me. The bus would be a 22-seater bus. I counted about 35 people before I got tired. I called Myself, sat myself down and gave myself a lecture. Over forty minutes, and no bus. If you miss the next one woooh, ti e ti ba e. So, I positioned myself well well like person wey wan catch bush rat.
Immediately I sighted the bus from afar, omo I no dull am. I ran towards it and looked for a way to get as close to the door as possible. I’m short so it’s sort of an advantage. But then the entrance is high, so super disadvantage cos with all the pushing, climbing would be hard.
As my guy open door, omo see rushing, pushing, squeezing, strangling. I was just squeezing myself in any available space. No be me go sleep for bus stop. As soon as I got close enough, I crawled-jump into the bus, gbam! As in, I entered the bus on all fours. Please don’t laugh at me. Iz nor a funny something. 😒😒😒 I didn’t have a choice. The bus was already filling up fast and doing tush girl will not help my situation.
I managed to get up from the floor of the bus without being trampled and finally secured a seat. By the time I weighed the damage, there was mud all over my shins and knees. I know I have bruises somewhere cos my legs are paining me die but looking at those who missed the bus outside gave me comfort. No dull am next time. 😋😋😋Even though we will still sleep In traffic, at least I have assurance of getting home before midnight. 😫😫😫
So, with all my slaying today, this is how my day ended? Bruises, pain and coated in mud. How can I be a lady when Lagos has turned me to a bus crawler? Chai. Thank God it’s Friday indeed.
PS: In case while reading this, God is touching your heart to bless me with a car, please buy me power bike instead. Danke. 😌😌😌
