168. On the bus, Buenos Aires

Bus driver (46):  Would you put your head back inside please!

Singing passenger (41):  Who – me?

Bus driver:  Yes, you!

Singing passenger:  Was it sticking out that far?

Bus driver:  Yes!

Singing passenger:  Sorry mate, didn’t mean to be a nuisance…  (half under his breath) …they should install a headmeter…

Later, to new female passenger who has just sat down beside him

Singing passenger:  Sorry that you'll be forced to listen to my singing, but apparently because of possible accidents they don’t let me stick my head out of the window to sing out…
