So there’s this Chinese girl on the bus talking really loud to her friend in Canto while everyone else is being quiet and resigned. It annoys me but I want to figure out which aspect of it is the source.
It’s not that she’s speaking another language, since she is probably talking about something inane and she had the right to talk in whatever language she chooses. It’s not because she’s a girl because I’m equally annoyed when guys talk on the bus about equally inane things. It’s not that she’s young either because old deaf ladies talk on the phone all the time.
No, I hate this girl because she’s making public space her private space. It’s rude. I have to hear her even though I don’t want to. I can wear headphones but I feel sick so I don’t want to right now. So instead, I will type this post, put my phone away, close my eyes, and wait to GTFO.
