The woman has tightly tangled curly hair. She strikes up a conversation with a woman she thinks she knows. The woman glances up but keeps her attention firmly on her newspaper. The woman with the curls keeps chatting, oblivious to the fact that the other woman is ignoring her. She shifts her laden pushchair into the aisle, standing in the way and repeatedly telling the driver that she wants the next stop. The bus brakes and her pushchair rolls away down the bus. As she rescues it she continues all the while her one-sided conversation with the unresponsive woman.
