As the bus left the rank and turned towards Gaborone West at the Phase 2 trafic lights the following conversation unfolded.
Guy in Red Jersey(behind me): Is this Gwest)? They say Maikano CJSS is 1.3Kms away from here.
Guy reading The Voice Newspaper (to my right): Did you say G-west? Nna I am distracted by the young girls in The Voice.
Guy in Red Jersey(behind me): Laughing. You will be left behind and then you’ll get lost in the city.
Guy reading The Voice(to my right): It’s the first time to take a bus to Francistown and have it pass through G-west. Is the driver drunk or what?
Man with child(in front of me): You guys must be from the villages, you are so noisy and inconsiderate, keep your voices down…(as his child continues to eat pie and is restless in the bus)
..The 2 guys keep quiet for a bit although they are shaking their heads in disbelief..
..the bus journey continues and as we approach airport junction about 10mins later, the guys start again..
Guy reading The Voice(to my right):The last time I was at the airport was three years ago. I am sure it has changed a lot
Guy in Red Jersey(behind me: EE.Thats because you prefer buses and trains. You must fly one of these days. (about 4 passengers nearby burst into laughter)..RED JESRY’s phone rings and he answers..’Did you ask where I am at ? I am in Gaborone, where did you think I was at?’
WOMAN IN BLUE BLOUSE as she eats some chocolate and chews like a cow on heat..’ Aish, you know all these people in this bus need Jesus. They are loud and conceited. Its a problem!’
MAN WITH CHILD: (in front of me): responding to BLUE BLOUSE..’ Hey , you have a point mma’ as he continues to scroll his phone.
GUY READING VOICE (to my right): Yho, let me sleep a bit this is going to be a long journey.
GUY IN RED JERSY (behind me): after finishing his phone call..’Ahh people can be tiresome, this person asks me where I am at yet she knows I am in Gaborone travelling to Francistown.
..the conversations slowly dies out as the bus approached phakalane, and I also mind my own business by listening to some music..
