I was on a bus heading home from work one afternoon, feeling tired, and little dizzy, when I realized that I am smelling something unusual. When I turned my back I saw this taxi driver sleeping, with his shoes off, and feet hanging to the vacant opposite seat of his.
Wow, it was like his extended living room. I forgot my hunger and was a bit irritated but I don’t want any trouble so I just took a picture of him with my blackberry. At least I have this pic until now, something for me to remember. Lol!
The Roads and Transport Authority of RTA here in Dubai are strict when it comes to comfort and hygiene for commuters. Surely this was just overlooked by the driver himself who is supposed to be responsible. I’m sure the driver saw this man on his tv monitor in the driver’s seat. (Dubai RTA Buses are equipped with cameras inside) If they (RTA) could also put stickers inside the bus telling about this kind of bad habit among some commuters.
After 35 minutes, I reached home still wondering about that *&^% taxi driver. Whew! What a smelly feet day it was!
