Stupid old man!

I feel like I want to screem in the bus yesterday to stop the old man from talking.
I was sitting behind this old man when the conductor bus (a women) approached the man asking where he's going. He hand the girl RM1.50 for his fares and answered 1.50...the women keep asking, where he's going... and the man keep saying.. 1.50! the girl asked again.. and again he aswered 1.50..thats iretated the girl.. and asked again, .."yalah.. tapi pigi mana?" (yeah but where are you going?). The old man rise his voice.. can't you see my "topiah"?(a cap wear by muslim pilgrim).. why I have to lie to you?...

The girls says "no.. I just asking where you're going, why its very hard for you to answer?". Than she asked me where I'm going, I said I stop at Ampang Point. She look back at the old man and says, "see, I ask him the same question. Thats not so hard to answer." The man keep talking non stop saying.. why do you have to ask?. are you a police?.. "suka hati sayalah"(I do whatever I like).. you think a "haji"(a holly muslim man) will lie to you? bla bla bla bla bla...

Its went on and on and on until I reach my stop. He can't keep his mouth shut! Oh God! why a simple thing can go such unecessary mouth war?! A man claim to be "haji"... he don't seem to act like one!.. he doesn't set an example to others... He's more like a mad man to me! where's the spirit of "sopan santun dan berbudi bahasa"? In my head, I imagine bashing the old man head with my umbrela.. god forgive me for such though... Its only in my though.. hope I don't turn into a mad man running "amok" in the bus.

Taking a mental note: put an earphone and turn on the mp3 at max volume.
