Random Bus Journey

Published by at 3:29 pm under Blog

Click for larger imageSitting upstairs, at the front of the bus, heading home from work on Friday evening, there are two kids – maximum 16 years of age – discussing how old they are now. They’re look a little like Goths but with a splash of colour and a smile – are they emo’s?

They were reminiscing about primary school and when they first met in first year. They’ve been together for 18 months and lately Emoboy’s mother has begun to have problems with Emogirl. They suspect it’s because 18 month ago she may have thought it was a little crush but now she is beginning to realise that they are ‘destined to be together forever’. He is angry at his mum for having a problem, because ‘she has no right o judge him’. She had him when she was aged 16 and has no right to lecture him about his girlfriend and anyway he won’t be as ‘stupid and naïve’ as his mother to make such a mistake. Yes, he descibes his own birth as a mistake – how much more teenage angst would you like? Deep stuff.

Just before I get off the bus, she makes him promise her they’ll be together forever. He promised!

    Hey, leave me any my girlfriend alone. We *will* be together forever! She lives next to the shop where I get my premier league stickers so we can’t break up or i’ll have to go to another shop.

    Or do emos collect premier league stickers?
    Or is there some sort of bad music/poetry sticker book… I’ve just had a brilliant idea, I’ll make millions.

    jesus Darren, that’s some spying you were doing! Were you typing as they spoke or just recording them on your phone?

    @GM Ha! She won’t feel the same when she’s 17, nevermind 32.

    @Anto You could be on to something there. Although, instead of stickers, you could have Top Trumps cards – but you’s have to have them laminated with sharp edges.

    @Darragh They’re teenagers. There could have been a full marching band between us and I would still have heard them.

    @Phil *silence*

    @Grandad It’s funny ’cause it’s true!

    @Lette Dear Emo Kids, I have read your problems and I can see the only solution is to shut the fuck up!!
