I live in the suburb of Almaty. Usually I leave my home at 9.30. It takes me about 10-15 minutes waiting for the bus. My first destination is a railway station where I get another bus to my office.

 I prefer to get a taxi if it’s available, but at this time it’s difficult to get the taxi to the railway station cause people usually go to work before 8.00 am. 

So I have no choice than to go by bus there. To tell you the truth, It’s not a comfortable one. But at least I am always lucky to get a seat there. Some things about that bus irritates me really. One is that the driver drives too slowly at first half of the road and the last part he goes too fast and at the bus stops he ask people to get out of the bus as quickly as possible. Especially it’s not suitable for the people with children and for old people because it takes some more time for them to get out of the bus. The second thing is a very loud music, which is playing always. Frankly speaking you could slightly name those sounds a music really. That "music" really is getting on my nerves and I guess on the nerves of my neighbors, sitting nearby.

After that little trip to the railway station spending around loud sounds of the “music” I am very happy to be in another bus, which is comfortable and with an intelligent driver in it. If I have the seat there I usually fell asleep for a while.


Thank you for your attention!

Thanks for sharing, Alexandra!

Some people tend to play music in public places - sometimes it's too loud or too noisy.

I've been in your shoes before. Irritating bus drivers are really the brunt of society, but I guess people are at their mercy.
