Sit down, ignore the person next to you, if they talk give short-one word replies to discourage conversation.
But the most annoying ni wale hawaweki simu silent/vibrate...millions of whatsapp messages zinaingia na huyu jamaa ako na annoying message tone !!!!

I HATE public transport! HATE! Kwanza sitting nxt to a man ni shida tupu! Kwanza if its long distance you will regret it! REGRET!!! Thank God these days there are flights to everywea. Because I've suffered! No matter what I would do, vaa sura ya job,read a book, look annoyed. Men must just be sumbua. I think I just have a motherly disposition! Nakwambia a cab driver has cried on me. Heh! Another young man told me his gf was impregnated twins by his best friend while he studied in Australia. Wueh! Vitu nimeambiwa. Acha kuongea kwa simu. Pouring their heart out to me. Anyway,I thank God I hardly ever use public transport anywea bcz I was suffering! All manner of characters! Perverts,pickpockets, even tout and driver want to fondle you. Nakwambia MATATU ni shida. I don't even want to remember! But I have some good memories of a gentleman paying for me after being pickpocketed.And another lady who tetead me, makanga alikataa na change yangu. That girl shouted at the kange akatoa pesa. Others maybe wanaona I have too much money, they shudnt rudishia me change. Mwingine alitoroka na change ya 500 . I used to carry a book and have headphones ndio nisiskize hiyo ushenzi ya classic fm. One day I sat nxt a young guy, anajaribu kuniongelesha,I jifanya I can't hear juu ya headphones, unajua alinitoa earphones? Ati, am talking to you!!! Sasa akaanza kuniuliza juu ya kitabu. It was about maumau women. I think men take a mat to be a brothel! So I had a strategy of seating nxt to women or older men. If evn in your own car,theyll disturb you, sasa wen ur in public transport ndio ni nini hawatajaribu? Na usifikirie its Kenyan men. Ive Sat nxt to muzungu men,Congolese,Nigerian,Tanzanian but Rwandese and Ugandan men they don't sumbua women in public transport! Saa hio ndio unajua urembo ni liability, anyway yalio pita sI ndwele. Although I still occasionaly use mat,once in a blue moon,if I can't get a cab, like out of Tao at rush hr but Im always apprehensive! Cabs nayo is another story, a cab driver female elderly, just fell apart, mwingine akashikwa na cop obstruction akaitushwa 5k, I had to tetea her, mpaka huyo cop siku hizi ni boyfriend yangu - maybe ni Pamba. MATATU giving you hell overlapping wen ur in ur own car.Anyway, you grow a thick skin.
Continue sitting next to old men, I hear that they have sticky fingers:D:D:D wanashika vitu bila aibu!

the words Alone and Lonely are worlds apart.
Adeudeu you annoy me each time nikisoma one liners zako hapa. Tuangushie hekaya. Kwanza maliza the one you went for a goat eating ceremony with 200 shs and you were a guest of honour na vile hukujua. :D
Alafu I wanna take this opportunity to thank you for e-introducing me to freestyle. You tagged me to his music and we are now beshtes possibly for life. Infact natokea Naks in Dec to visit the family and remind myself of the raves I attended at Egerton Uni back in the day. Uziwa vilivyo.
Sasa chapa hekaya.

Let me share the torture I went through last night on my way home from the office. I have always been against people speaking in loud voices when picking calls, especially in public transport, until I met these two ladies yesterday. Munasema @GeorginaMakena hawa walishinda.

It was just a normal day in the office. In the evening I took my walk and boarded my usual Kenya Mpya. The lady in front of me on the queue had a tablet which I suppose was her phone too. She looked decent and I was planning to sit next to her and hear her story of the day.

Inside the bus, she sat next to the window, so my only option was to sit next to her in the middle of a three sitter, but something told me (that inner voice) to seat a row in front and avoid her, she might think I was stalking her. The journey started, the bus jacked off showing symptoms of failing before we reach our destination. My hopes were high, we did reach safely.

It started with this lady on the queue receiving a phone call in the bus, she was the only person speaking. When she spoke, I was sure that the driver heard her, because I saw the conductor looking and searching for the hornbill. The conversation was too loud, I was forced to listen and that's where I discovered that she had hooked up with her cousin, another hornbill. That makes them two, seated behind me.

She called her mother to notify her of their meeting at the bus station and one helping the other cut the queue. The cousin talked with the mother and after the call they had a laugh that was very irritating. She even ordered a Kgas for her mother in a similar manner and this time she was even louder. I could see other passengers looking behind and laughing.

Deep inside I was irritated, burning and wishing that I had not left my headphones at home. I believe that I had met a woman who was totally opposite what I liked, wale unaona unajipea shughuli. This made me think about men who get married without first putting their potentials in various tests- haswa hii ya umbea.

When I thought that the drama was over, they stated a conversation. This time everyone in the bus was quiet and I bet some were sleeping. The only person who they were competing with was a lady behind them who was probably taking an order of "mbosho."

They talked about a guy who had more money but could not find love, the boyfriend to the first hornbill who was also in the Kenya air force. This part was hilarious, she said, "Anaweza funga macho na afikirie kitu yoyote na atabuy," man hizi umbea za Thika road ni exaggerated. All along she was exposing the history of his boyfriend and another guy who worked in PrimeBank in public.

This time as they were talking I was thinking of ways I could distract myself because hii umeffi ilikuwa too much. I almost stood up and slapped each one of them na niwashone mdomo. I could hear other passengers clicking cause they were talking like golddiggers and ratchets.

The two ladies on my side were ashamed and embarrassed. One of the hornbills approached the lady seated next to me and said that she knew her from somewhere, but the lady refused to be associated with her. I laughed deep inside, Ata mimi singekubali umeffi. Jana nililazimishwa umbea kutoka Nairobi hadi K-road. Thank God Ktalk rescued me, so I zoned out. The respect for senior villagers has now diminished in our society.


Do these type of ladies exist in life? I am also wondering, what is the etiquette of taking calls or talking in public transport? Enlighten Me Please!
Wewe kuja kwenye niko and you sit next to the 'Shame of Africa' aka Manaijo in the bus. The women especially. They talk so loudly in Ibo or whatever. They have deep voices like men and convos always make them sound like they are fighting. Vvvv embarrasing as everyone huffs and puffs. No wonder their men cannot get enough of soft spoken Eastern/Southern African beauties.
