When a person falls asleep next to you on the bus
Happy Monday, all!
We had some interesting discussions this past week via comments on what happens when you write what you’re thinking about instead of what you mean to write, but like Tim showed us, people also SAY the wrong things and it can lead you straight into awkwardness (and make you pay for someone else’s gas.. err, petrol). And like Venom and PCC mentioned, it can be difficult to have people speaking around you while you’re trying to write. We’re all getting signs made: “If you see me writing, please no talking”.
Anyway, my morning commute was awkward this morning, and I think it was karma doing its thing. You see, last week, I was laughing in the bus because some guy was falling asleep on a young girl sitting by the window. She kept adjusting herself trying to wake him up but the guy was knocked out! It was hilarious!
But then this morning:
What do you do when they begin to lean on you?
I nudge them the other way, though I once did let some old guy lean on me. Oh and one time I pushed a guy too far and he almost fell.
What about when you reach your stop?
Waking them up is a little awkward, especially since they’re super confused afterwards.
Has this ever happened to you? Are you the sleeper?
