Too Much Noise in Train Station

Viewed 1262 times 2014-5-30 13:00 |System category:News| waiting, station, little, train

I was waiting in the train station and longed for a little nap. But as I seated myself, I heard terrible noise coming in all directions. In front of me was a grope of women. They had hum of chat, murmuring and mumbling, chuckling from time to time. Beside me, a young girl sucked an ice cube into her mouth, crunching it loudly. At my other side, a boy hummed to himself as he played his mobile phone.The hum liked the sound of bees, making me get goose bumps. Who annoyed me most was a fortyish man with short, pressed hair, a pencil mustache, and a neatly pressed brown suit. Everything about him suggested a carefully dressed authority, but he lost his temper and snapped irritably at a young boy who was wearing a V-neck sweater, khakis, and sneakers, wearing an expression of open dismay. The young boy was crying for a tasty ice-cream, but the man refused it and burst into a storm of abuse, hooting in a loud high-pitched noise.

When I was wondering whether I could still take a little nap, some children full of pep ran over to me, screaming and giggling. All that clatter drown out the drowsiness in my eye, and put me in a sour mood.
