One ke? My pet peeves while traveling plenty na...

-Driver who isn't paying attention.

-Driver answering calls while driving, not using signals, cursing other drivers, engaging in race with other cars and any general disregard for road rules.

-Someone eating very odorous things in a bus, sometimes noisily and with so much relish. Eggs, egg-roll, suya, opa...etc.

-People that will pay for 2 tickets and you see them entering with 4kids. They turn you to involuntary nanny. You can't even say no without looking inhumane or like someone who wouldn't/doesn't have kids.

-Obstructing my leg space with nonsense load, while the owner balances in Seat 1 or 2.

-Playing gospel music or any music at all. See, don't assume we are all of same religion. Some of us are idol worshippers. Some of us want to listen to our own music, with our headsets.

-Passengers that wanna talk without respecting boundaries. They want to know where you are going, why you are going there, where you will be staying and when you will leave.

Pheew...

If you mean public transportation, my number one pet peeve when I was in Nigeria was co-travelers who loudly provided minute by minute updates on their phones talking to unknown persons and letting them know all details of the monitoring.

I was wondering, isn't this the function of gps and stuff, why not just provide these "fake travelers" with special trackable phones so they don't have to loudly let people know they "are onto them".

Lol, no one can tap current from me like that. I can't remember the last time I travelled interstate via buses. Even when I did, I never experienced such or probably didn't notice.

Most times I drive, other times I buy up two seats. They give me that "you think you have arrived look".

Kilo kan mi? grin

1. I hate seeing a passenger eat boiled eggs. I thought that I was the only one that hated the smell of boiled eggs, until one day I boarded a bus. During the journey, na so one babe just bring out her eggs to chop. Next thing, I was feeling so irritated...na so driver begin para...dey vex o. The driver had to stop... told the girl to come out and finish the eggs or she throws all away. The driver told her not to even think of farting grin

2. I don't like sitting close to a talkative/noisy passengers: I meditate, think, reminisce most times when I travel.

The people that believe that their transport fare entitles them to make noise while discussing politics, annoyingly, most times they do not sit together but have to talk over other people's heads.
