2 bus passengers wage a battle of nerves: To close or to open the window?
Two bus passengers quietly fought over who gets window rights as they opened and closed a bus window in a back-and-forth battle.
The exchange was filmed in a bus in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia, on May 25. The clip started with a woman closing one of the bus’ sliding windows above her. A man wearing sunglasses and a baseball cap sitting on an elevated seat behind her suddenly reopened the window.
Without saying a word, the woman promptly closed the window again. Undeterred, the man agaim reopened the window. The woman closed the window again, but this time left her hand on the glass to keep it closed.
The man tried to push it open, but couldn’t find a handhold. He managed to pry the window open again by letting the friction from his palm stick to the glass which allowed him to push it open. This time it was the man’s turn to lock the window open by placing his hand on the window frame. Doing so prevented the woman from pushing the glass closed.
When he thought the woman had given up, he pulled back his hand to sit more comfortably. Seeing this, the woman quickly took the chance and closed the window again. This whole exchange would repeat itself in silence for the remainder of the four-minute-long video uploaded on YouTube channel ViralHog.
Unfortunately, the passenger filming the fight cut off the recording before a clear victor could be established. YouTube users who saw the video were left frustrated for the lack of a proper conclusion, but had a good laugh nonetheless. Some even thought the encounter was a good recipe for romance. /ra
