In this tough economy of ours, the hustle is real and as such, many wise folks have decided that they will not come and stay in the house and allow hunger to finish them. Instead, some have resorted to very ingenious ways of making use of their talents to earn pay such as riding on the religious inclination of the citizens of the nation.

Ladies and gentlemen, below are 16 things that anyone who has been in a commercial bus with a preacher can relate with:

1. When you wake up in the morning, hoping it will be a lovely day ahead

    I find bus preachers very annoying. I bet a lot of people do too, but nobody wants to be the “winch” that tells them to shut the fuck up, so we just ignore them and suffer in silence anyway. Thank God for headphones sha.

    Bus Preachers…an inconsiderate set of people. Somebody would be hoping to catch some sleep to augment the 5hrs daily ration, then one man with bad english and mouth odor will start screaming and spitting on fellow passengers. I just want to sleep, read, think or just enjoy the quiet before another stressful day begins fothermocker!

    Thank God for noise-cancelling earphones.
