Thank you very much for your reply!
I understand what you say about teenagers. And to me it's okay for them to be loud. (god know I was at that age...lol) They need to manifest
themselfs and find their own identity and that comes with a lot of "acting big". It's also this behaviour with which I'm not concerned. (well
maybe if it's really really bad but in general not)
I'm much more concerned with adults who behave in an anti social way. That behave like the entire world is theirs and you are in their way.
I also want to get back on the bad service thing. I also try to treat people likewise. But sometimes....
I want to tell you about something that happend to me a month ago. I was taking the bus from my mothers house to Utrecht (major city big
trainstation... so I needed to get there to get home). While we were driving 120 km on the highway the busdriver got his cellphone out and started
text messaging and taking pictures of himself
He missed a turn because of it and had to drive another route trough Utrecht missing practicly all stops except for the final one. One lady got out
just before the final one and asked why he didn't take the usual route (from her position she didn't see what he was doing behind the wheel). He
said he was taking the usual route. The lady apoligised for her mistake
and left the bus. When we were at the final stop I walked up front and
"sir could you please not use your cellphone behind the wheel anymore. It is against the law and you could hurt a lot of people when you loose
control of that bus. Also you wouldn't have missed that turn if you hadn't been using your phone"
He started to reply with: "i didn't use..."
Well I didn't let him finish that sentence and I repeated the thing I said above with the addition that I saw him doing that with my own eyes and
that he didn't have to deny it.
The reply was like the ones you sometimes get.... total silence.
I believe the correct reply (especially from an adult) would be to apoligise but he didnt.
Now my point is at least 5 more people in that bus saw what I saw. But none of them spoke up. I just wonder why people do that. Because if nobody
mentions to that man he's doing something wrong, he will just keep on doing that.
Anyway... I made a huge reply again too...lol... I really should be of to work soon so I better start getting ready.
