Rant of the week no. 3

Those vain, self centered, arrogant, supercilious, selfish and somewhat misanthropic idiots that sit there on public transport calling everyone in their mobile phone book and then talk in a very loud voice... for 20 minutes.

 

 A somewhat personal rant on the stupid things that go on in Hong Kong

 One of the rudest most selfish people I have ever met

One of the rudest most selfish people I have ever met

Just about everyday I have to travel on a mini bus to get to my local train station, it takes about 20 minutes and I use the time to plan my day and watch the world go by.. in other words, a bit of quiet time. 

This all went to pot the other day when this (and I hesitate to use the term) lady sat down next to me and proceeded to make 7 or 8 phone calls in a very loud voice, she would make a call, yabber for a few minutes, end the call and immediately make another call and she had a voice that would make the Queen break out in hives.  

It takes an awful lot to make me lose my cool but this lady really got on my nerves and I was feeling very sorry for the entire bus load of passengers who had no choice but to listen to her inane chatter... I gave her a death stare, no effect at all so I took this photo, this got her attention but she simply turned away and continued her conversation.... I then spent the rest of the journey dreaming of smelly socks and gaffer tape and possible uses.

The vast majority of Hong Konger's are very well mannered and very polite and seethe quietly so as to avoid confrontation, they would not have said anything to this lady even if she talked for an hour.

This lady.. well she needs a couple of lessons in social manners, I am now wondering where I can get an air horn and if I have the misfortune to sit next to her again then I have the perfect response to her distinctly anti - social behaviour. 

End of rant no. 3

 


I do personal walking tours around Hong Kong, I am on the streets every day and I have a somewhat interesting perspective of this wonderful city I have called my home for 37 years. My private walking tours are perfect for visitors who want a detailed overview of Hong Kong prior to exploring on their own and for people who are only here for a day or two who want to make the most of their limited time here.

Many clients book me for their first full day in Hong Kong, they get to see the best that Hong Kong has to offer + a crash course on our wonderful public transport system and then they go exploring for the rest of their stay armed with step by step instructions and recommendations from me....

I am available at very short notice, I get many last minute bookings and may well be available even if you arrive in Hong Kong without making plans! so please check my calendar, if it says I am free then I am available to do a tour!! Simply send me a message for a prompt reply

...oh, and if you book a tour then you are booking a tour with me, I do not employ other guides.
