Was your Kashmir trip similar to your Kanyakumari trip or was your Shimla trip similar to your Ooty trip?
I don’t think so because for travelers like us each trip is a new experience altogether and these trips bring new types of people. Now that co-passengers are a major part of your trips, they can make as well as break your ideal trip’s idea.
Have you ever tried categorizing co-passengers? If not, this article is just for you.
Here are 11 types of co-passengers you’ll meet once in your lifetime.
LIFETIME GYAN PASSENGERS
Yes, these types of passengers do fall in the category of our elders. Since the beginning of our trip they start by giving us sermons. Be it studies, career, relationships, marriage or family planning, they talk about each and every aspect present under the sun. Whether you’re interested or not you have to hear that.
Yes all the way looonnggg. ?
ACTUALLY BENEVOLENT PASSENGERS
These passengers are actually considerate towards you. They will share their own experiences as well as will ask for yours too. They give you your due space and maintain healthy boundaries as well. And if you get lucky they might exchange their lower berth with yours upper ones or could give you the window seat on board. ?
These are the most insane ones and you often find them in trains. They are so courageous that they can travel without tickets with their entire family for free. Then they look for someone who can sponsor their snacks on board. Beware folks. ?
DON’T MESS WITH ME PASSENGERS
These are the most dangerous ones. Mind you stay away from them. They make the rudest expressions on their face and can punch you hard if they find someone up to mischief. They are clearly no nonsense people. Also these are the first ones who stop us from singing and dancing on our journey. ?
They are the ones who light up our monotonous journey. From “Bol Radha Bol” to “Babydoll” they have all songs on their tips. You can name the song they will name the movie and if you name the movie they will utter a dialogue. That’s cool. Matter of memory, bruh.?
And there is always this group which is very much excited about their own destination that even you want to join them on their trip. There is always a group like this which gives you a virtual trip to the much discussed place that the travelling troupe is visiting. Don’t lose track, stick to your own dream destination folks. ☺
AWAY FROM THE REALITY PASSENGERS
Away from the mainstream passengers these type of passengers sit in a corner and grab their favourite read (novel) or they depend upon their headphones lost in their world and thoughts. They have nothing to do with you or your existence and you are quite invisible for them. ?
PASSENGERS INTERESTED IN WHATEVER YOU DO
So now we come down to people who like to look at you when you smile, when you eat, when you sit, when you adjust your bag, when you sleep, when you actually make an eye contact, when you don’t directly look at them and even when you breathe (not really?). They are like those CCTV cameras which watch over you 24*7 and appear expressionless. No happiness no sadness totally blank. ?
PLAYING CARDS PASSENGERS
These passengers have a great capacity to gamble. They often start with tambola but ends up with playing cards. They not only entertain you but also teach you different games that can be played by cards, rummey, teen patti to name a few. And yes this skill of their helps them to make new friends. ?
Well they always have a curve on their lips. A big and broad smile always on the go. They smile to such an extent that even Laughing Buddha would be complexed. Yes, they do make your surroundings positive. But after a certain time it might irritate you? Ever happened??
FOOD SHARING PASSENGERS
And this is my personal favourite category of passengers for a foodie like me loves to eat food of different places. These people share their home cooked food on board with you and also show heartwarming hospitality and treat you like one of them. “Aare beta aur lo na” is a sentence that is music to my ears. Isn’t it? Agree won’t you??
So these were 11 categories of co-passengers that you might have come across once in your lifetime. So next time when you travel just analyse which type of co passengers you are travelling with. Also see for yourself in which category do you fall into?. ??
