I hate the smell of burnt Karma in the morning...

Kilgore: You smell that? Do you smell that?... Karma, son. Nothing else in the world smells like that. I love the smell of Karma in the morning (...)
Apocalypse now (free version)

The bus driver had just finished the first round and was at the beginning of the circuit again. He let everybody in, shut the doors close, started the bus and drove one meter until he had to stop at the red traffic lights. A person outside approached the bus, asking him to open the doors. First, the bus driver tried to ignore him, but later he denied with his head. The pedestrian made an involuntary movement of frustration, really mad at the bus driver, burned some Karma, mumbled something like "fucking gobshite", regreted his bad thoughts and language and walked one meter back to the bus stop. Five seconds later the lights turned green and the bus driver continued his journey. The pedestrian found a seat, opened his moleskine and began writing

The bus driver had just finished the first round and was at the beginning of the circuit...

I don't know if the most disturbing part was his bouncer-like attitude (little persons that consider themeselves important when in charge of insignificant duties), his momentary excess of righteousness or more likely the fact that he actually decided to start the bus, drive for one frigging meter, stop the bus at the lights and let me down to wait in the cold for the next bus. People as stupid as this man should not be allowed in society.

And this episode has left me either with very little Karma to burn or completely out of it. What now?
