What people say about life in the street was hard, proven yesterday, and I became one of the witnesses.
I was taking angkot to a beauty center near Ragunan from my home. It was a hot day. The street wasn’t full, nor empty, unlike work day. When the angkot approached to the Jatipadang intersection, it lapped a small bus (Kopaja). Succesfully doing that, abruptly it was hit from the back. The kopaja hit the angkot I was in.
Then, it can be predicted. The angkot driver was mad and got off the vehicle. While checking the damage, the kopaja driver shouted unpleasant words toward him which of course evoked his emotion. The angkot driver challenged the kopaja driver to get down but it was useless. Shortly they were invloved in fierce arguments. It was as hot as the day, causing people sweat alot and angry easier.
The angkot then continued the route. The driver said that he would take a revenge to the kopaja driver, which happened having the similar end terminal, accordingly Ragunan. I was terrified within the vehicle and said to him” Sabar ya, Bang. Sabar”. I suggested him to be patient. But I didn’t know if he took it. Like I was clueless if the fight would really happen after that in Ragunan.
Oh yeah, it was really hard there, life in the street.
