Stuff I hate about Bangalore

Posted by Sowmya:) on April 29, 2014

1. Horrible traffic- Flouting traffic rules, driving on the opposite side, incessant honking, etc can drive even a Chennai auto driver insane…and that is something! I actually had a guy honking at me for not moving on the ramp of a mall parking at 11 pm. Does he really think that is my choice of hanging out? Obviously there is a car ahead and I can’t move. Why else would I be on the incline for 10 minutes?

2. One Ways – All roads are one-ways. To reach anywhere, you need to go in circles and circles…..and still you end up on the Exit side of the building instead of the Entry…and you start going in circles again! The worst thing is you pass by your desired location and there is no way you can take a u-turn and return. You need to go across the entire city to get back to square one.

3. Customer service – Here, it means the customer has to do the service. Shrugging, blank expressions, rolling eyes are all acceptable form of customer service…..especially if done in slow motion. I routinely fill my bags with the billed stuff at super markets because I lose patience with the snail pace of the guy at the billing counter. I order two hours in advance to get stuff at my desired time. Worst is if I can’t find something on the aisle and need to ask one of the retail store executive…..total nightmare!

4. IT – You just have to be working with an IT company if you stay here. Else you are a second class citizen. Landlords don’t like to rent out. They do rent out but eye you very suspiciously. Neighbours don’t know what to talk to you. And you need to have a lengthy explanation always as to why you are not in IT and still live in Bangalore

5. Airport – They make it so hard to escape this city. Cos the airport is near Chennai or maybe Hyderabad rather than Bangalore. Just takes forever to get there. And I have at times, paid more for the cab to the airport than for a flight ticket to Mumbai.

And I have justified each one of these with these little words “just look at the weather”.
And NOW….what’s left really?
