Bus Goblins & Book Signings

Okay, so what is this all about then?
Well, let me tell you.
I don’t know if many of you take the bus regularly, but I used to and let me tell you I attracted all of the bus goblins!
These bus goblins are the people that have zero regard whatsoever for your personal space, they sit too close to you, hit you with their shopping bags, play their music way too loud, or chatter away on their mobile phones when all you want to do is sit and chill on your journey.
I’ve had so many bus goblin incidents: (here are a few)…
I had the man that randomly sat next to me and swung his legs over my legs and left them there!
(I can tell you that did not end well for him).
The man that kept jumping up and down to open and close the window.
The drunk man that told me his life story, while breathing his beer breath all over me (it was 7.30am), and a man that showed me the tattoo of his Lambretta scooter – this tattoo was weirdly placed just above his crotch – nice! Not!
But the chatty bus goblins? It doesn’t get much worse.
These are the goblins that chat utter nonsense to you, when all you want to do is get home.
I once had to sit and listen to a woman tell me all about her hallway carpet. For twenty five minutes! Eh?!
So, when contemplating what to write in my books (see previous post) I thought back to my bus journey’s and to the clever people that were sat reading a book – nobody ever bothered those people – ever!
So, yes, books are definitely the first line of defence against chatty bus goblins!
