Today I got into the regular bus to work. It was non AC.
It was unusually crowded, so I stood at the front next to the driver and the engine. After a few minutes, my feet became very hot. There was too much hot air coming from the engine which heated up the entire place. I was restlessly waiting to get down at my stop.
Then I noticed the driver. With one towel on his neck and one on his lap, he was continuously wiping sweat from his face.
It is just 10:30 in the morning. This chap had the whole burning day ahead.
The mindless, insensitive traffic made the situation worse for him. After all, he had to keep his cool since there were so many lives dependent on him.
I want to remember this the next time I am sitting in my AC car and getting angry on any bus driver indulging in a slightly annoying driving. Truly, road rage can be better managed if we kept in mind the situation of every driver and not just our own convenience.
