THE MAN ON THE BUS
This is a story about a man who travels every morning to work. He's focused on getting to work and doesn't want to be distracted. Every morning the people at the bus stop and in the bus make him very angry. He wants to say to them, "Shut the hell up!" and, "Get the hell away from me!," but he can't. He just keeps to himself all the words that are being thrown around him outside the bus and inside the bus. He tries to interpret what he thinks these words mean to him, but gets fed up with how stupid and how illogical the world can be.
As the days go on, he continues to interpret in his mind of what people are trying to say. Not saying anything, he just listens to conversations before he gets to work.
Until one day, a very charismatic African-American man approaches him trying to make a conversation with him. He tries to ignore him, but, he cannot help hearing what he has to say.
The words that come out of his mouth are filled with emotion. He's intrigued by the stories he tells and the wisdom he gives him. In years of waiting and waiting for the bus and being on the bus, he has never come close to friendship with anyone until he was approached by this man. He finds what this African-American man tells him to be very inspiring and thought-provoking. With thoughts flooding his mind on how stupid and how illogical people can be, he begins to rethink those thoughts he had about the world. He comes to see that the world is a whole a lot different than it was before.
