列車將稍為延誤五分鐘…

網路圖片。

起初聽到「列車將稍為延誤五分鐘…」,會心平氣靜地想:五分鐘而已。

然而,當這句話在月台以兩文三語無限loop地廣播,還老實不客氣兼亳無悔意地說著:「不便之處,敬請見諒…please accept our apology…」

明明平靜的心情開始被煩音搞得焦躁。中秋日間忙著工作,晚上還要跟親戚做節,已經累得半死,莫非大西北居民連中秋也逃不過給港鐵玩弄的命運?

接下來,排在你後面的小孩嚎哭,煩音繼續loop。為了逃避煩音,不理會會聾的風險(反正我在學手語),我把降嘈耳筒的音量上調,聽著張敬軒嘗試看書分散注意力。

月台開始悶熱,額角開始滲出汗水,喉嚨開始乾,想喝水,但又怕不知要困獸鬥多久,只能輕輕呷一口水濕濕喉嚨。天啊,水為何這般熱?大概是剛才趕著走在公司裝水時裝得太多熱水了。
