Cabin berth

Excerpt from an incident which took place last weekend, when i had gone to my hometown with a friend, to attend a common friend's wedding !!!

----
"What the &*@# !!", i almost blurted out, when they said that i had NOT booked any tickets on their bus. I had booked the tickets weeks in advance, and they had called me yesterday to confirm my tickets.

I took out my mobile and showed the evidence in the received call list. The guy just smiled sheepishly and said "SORRY".

This word ought to be banned from the english literature !!! at least you won't have people saying "Oh !! I am reeally sorry that i pissed you off .. you see, my friend needed these tickets badly"

Desperate times call for desperate measures !!! I would go in the Cabin.
-----

The structure of the buses which take me to my hometown are quite simple. There is the all-famous cabin, no bigger than a study table, where one driver sits, the other driver sleeps (they work in shifts) , a third guy keeps the driver company, and where guys like me sit/stretch/sleep.
Behind the cabin, the passengers sit on the many rows of chairs, which can be pushed back for a comfortable sleeping posture. There would also be a movie playing, that one can watch before going to sleep.

There were four of us in the cabin, besides the three drivers.

Having said that (and having sat in the Cabin for lousy 8 hours), let me tell you about the unique 'features' of the cabin:
  • A very good view : Of the road/buses/lorrys in front of you. Enjoy a STIMULATING time while your driver plays carmageddon.
  • Air conditioned : For heating, move your body forward so that you are sitting over the engine. For cooling, move backward to enjoy the chill air from the windows.
  • Cushioned seats : You will never feel anything ( Numb )


You feel so refreshed the next day that you drop right to sleep !!!
