Have i come with a tag "You wanna sit in this seat?"


On the way back to Bangalore from Chennai, a girl was sitting in Coach C2 Lalbagh Express and was talking in phone with one of her friends. There came a blushing young lady who asked "We have come for our honey moon. He is sittng there and my seat is here. Do you mind swapping the seats?". The girl promptly responded, "No problem" despite of the fact that she wanted to say "Yeah I am single and I have come alone so i can sit where ever you want me 2". After couple of minutes, there came another lady who requested "We have come with our new born baby and it would be too difficult to manage the baby all alone. If you dont mind can you sit over there so that I can have my hubby be seated with me". Again despite of the fact that she wanted to say "Yeah I am single and I have come alone so i can sit where ever you want me 2", the girl sat in the pointed place.

After settling down in the new place, she continued the conversation with her friend in the phone again. There came two old ladies, who said "We are elderly people and we have come alone. She is my sister. It will be comfortable if we can sit together." The girl jumped out of the seat and asked "Whats your seat number please?" Both the ladies said "Thank you so much. God bless you!" in unison. One of the lady said "There is a lot of change in the present generation. They are unlike us". Friend on the phone said "Please tell them that you will also get married one day or the other and you will also have your honey moon and you will also become old and tell them you will handle them at that point of time!"


Wondering if the girl has come with the tag "You wanna sit in this seat?"

Haha...I would have travelled about 15 times from Chennai to Tiruppur..Here are some of the excuses I was given to giveup my lower birth seat;

" குழந்தையோட வந்திருக்கோம் சார் அவன் அம்மா கிட்டதான் படுத்துப்பான்..மேல படுத்தா கீழவிழுந்திடுவான்..இப்படிதான் ஒருதடவ.....”

ஒகே..

”தம்பி. என் wife னால மேல ஏறி படுக்கமுடியாது.வயசாயிடுச்சு.நானும் ஹார்ட் பேஷண்ட்”

ஹூம்..

“ தம்பி..நீங்க இளவட்டம்..எனக்கு வயசாயிடுச்சு”

சரிங்க

“ சார், கைக்கொழந்தையோட வந்திருக்கோம்..பெரியவங்களும் வந்திருக்காங்க”

அப்படிங்களா?..புரியுதுங்க.


and the list goes on...

Single'a travel panna indha problem varum. Some parents want their baby to have the "window seat" so that their kid can have a nice view outside. It happened to me many a times.

Vasanthan said...

This is the reason why i don sit in the metro trains. of possible i avoid crowded modes of transport.

Sriram said...

most of the times, people are pleased to oblige when asked politely. lol at wat friend said in the phone.

Being male & single, we always draw the short straw with comments like:

"jawaan beta. avan adjust pannipaan. onnum prechanaiyee illa!"

from one of the comments - classic this:

“ தம்பி..நீங்க இளவட்டம்..எனக்கு வயசாயிடுச்சு”
