挤尼玛个鬼挤: Fucking your mom, squeeze to become a ghost!

司机,把空调打开撒: Driver, turn on the air conditioner for a while.

我要吐了: I am vomiting!

XX路有冒得下的,冒得走滴啊: Anybody is getting off at XX station? If no, we will leave now.

往豆里走撒,豆里那空,都尼玛挤到门口挤到: Go inside, inside is empty, why fucking all squeeze to the door!

嘿老资,勒多人,我等下一趟算了: I am scared! So many people! I prefer to waiting for the next bus.

信邪,老资在后头等他在前头停,老资在前头等他在后头停!Unbelievable! When I wait for the bus at the real, it stops at the front; when I wait at the front, it stops at the back!

尼玛,跑得老资汗直希滴: Damn it, I run so hard that sweat trickles down the face!

小常识:公交站牌在前方五十米处: Notice: The bus stop board is located 50 meters ahead.

司机,开哈子门吧: Driver, open the door, OK?
