GRANDMA WAS A BLESSING

Have you ever tried to observed people around you while you are waiting for something and for a reason that you don't want to be burned out. I guess this has been one of my stress reliever sometimes. Just this evening when I was inside the train heading home, the lady in my left side also standing was so talkative, she was in her 50's (I am guessing). Along with her is a woman maybe her office mate. What about them? Why would I not notice them, grandma was shouting over the boys trying to get in to our area. Grandma's line was " stop entering here, don't you see ladies compressed already in this side? maybe you want to take advantage of us here, that's why you there are pushing yourselves in our area. Well, the benefit of grandma's confronting men passenger was a big relief to me. As our area was not that crowded, I could still breath freely and could move my legs and hands as well.

At the back of me, where also a lady stands. She was also with a friend, and what makes me noticed the lady at my back is that, every time she would talk and would laugh, her pony tailed hair is swaying against me. At first, I tried to keep a distance from her, but she seemed to be unaware of that. And when I cannot hold it anymore, with a low voice, I called the lady's attention and there you go the discomfort feeling from her pony tailed hair was addressed. In front of me was all ladies seating, they were maybe at my age also. I wonder why no one bothers to give grandma a seat. Oh I realized,the four lady seating in front of us were also a group. They would smile every time grandma would make a scene. I was just glad that no one answers back the moment grandma was talking to them.What a colorful scene I have witness inside the train.

I had this experience once when me and my brother was on our way to the province for the holy week and there were plenty of passengers but since we were there early we got ourselves a seat. suddenly an old woman was standing right next to my brothers seat and my brothers who's too gentleman (which is annoying at times) gave his seat to that old woman and not minding that the woman will take off the same place as us..so, for like almost 2hours my brother was standing the whole time and I gotta deal with the old woman who leaned her head on my shoulder which pissed me off..big time! but lol, as if I can complain..she's an old woman and I'm younger..guess I have to deal with that. so, what I did was to really just go with it =))

the reason I did not complain is that, I don't want my grandma or my mother to undergo such thing..^_^
