1.GAME OF DEPOT
would’ve already had a dull and exhausting day, and the wait for the bus to go
home will not help your already dampened spirits. Oh wait, it’s when fate
decides to play “GAME OF DEPOT” with you, where in most of the buses are either
going to depot or to a different destination. The Sun also decides to join in
to add a game of “HOT and SWEAT” to complete your daily perspiration quota!
2. ANGELS AND DEMONS
When the bus to your
destination arrives, you are overjoyed and almost not notice the sea of people
oozing out from every visible orifice of the bus. Then comes the dreading
pushing and shoving, all the while thanking your god Mundakanniamman that all
your belongings remain intact and not be stolen. Just when you think all hope
is lost, you are pulled into the bus by few Angels in the guise of good
Samaritans! (remember Galadriel coming to pull Frodo in time of need ? ).Before
you could say “Thank You”, the same people start stamping your feet with their
troll like feet . Demons ..I Tell ya..the whole lot of them!!
3. THE AUTOMATIC
MTC buses can be attributed to the
mysterious phenomena of “AUTOMATIC DISPLACEMENT”. No matter where you stand in
the bus , after some time, you will find yourself at the exit. And this cycle
repeats again and again till you finally get down the bus.
4. AMUSEMENT PARK
have the potential to give you roller coaster like feel. Buy a ticket and sit
back to enjoy the “Humungous Hump” , the “The Pothole Bone Cruncher” and the ever famous “Sudden Jerk”! Water
rides are available during rainy days only.
Chennai MTC buses nourishes hundreds of freelance
graphic designers by providing them enough space for them to showcase their
artistic talents . “Raja loves priya ” followed by a heart symbol that resembles
a kidney are some of the examples of such budding talents. Occasionally you
will find a vivid description of their love lives as well.
6. MISSION IMPOSSIBLE
The Holy Grail of MTC Bus travel! Finding an empty
seat in Peak hours. As soon as someone vacates a seat, people make a grab for
it like a pack of hyenas descending on a dead wildebeest carcass on the plains
of Africa! At least the Hyenas smell better! Also an unspoken rule. If a seat
is empty and no one is trying to sit on it then its either broken ,spat on or a
chewing gum is stuck on it or All three of them together!
7. LAW OF WOMEN AND CHANGE
The law of
women states that the empty seats reserved for either men or women in a mtc bus will always belong to women no
matter what and if questioned the reply will always be creative expletives .
The law of change states that the change can be neither
created nor destroyed by but can only be transferred from us to the conductor .
The inverse of this law never holds good during the peak hours.
8. THE IMAGINARY SPACE DELUSION
No matter how crowded the bus is, conductor is
always of the impression that there is space inside the bus that can
accommodate even more. This delusion on his part often leads to “Po
Ullara..nerya edam irukku par…po ulla!!”
9. THE DROWSINESS SYNDROME
No matter how crowded the bus is, the rhythmic
movements will always manage to take you the land of snory slumber often
resulting in missing your stop.
10. THE SEARCH IS COMPLETE
At last when you do find a vacant seat to park your
rear end and give your aching legs a well deserved rest, you hear the
conductor’s whistle and soon realize that your destination has arrived and its
time to get down. No issues..there is always a next time!
