Ignorant Bus Riders
Another thing that really bothers me is when people have a shopping bag or purse that they think is entitled to its own seat on the bus. I do not have a problem with people doing this when there are a lot of seats, but when people are walking down the aisle looking for a seat, put your damn bag in your lap and let them sit down. A similar tactic is when someone sits on the outside seat when no one is sitting in the window seat. Again, not cool, move your ass over and let someone else sit down. Who knows, you might actually get to have an interesting conversation with someone. At the very least, you are allowing someone to have a more comfortable ride.
The previous people would never make it on a 61 or 71. Someone would just tell them to move their ass the hell out of the way!
Finally, I hate the people that wait until the bus gets to their stop, then decide they need to ask the person in the aisle seat to move because this is their stop. Come on, you know when your stop is coming up, have the curtsy to get up a few blocks before so the whole bus is not waiting for you. Then, the best part is, these people get up to the front, and only then do they start looking for their fair or pass. They slowly open their purse or dig through their pockets to try and figure out where the money/pass is. People, you've been sitting on the bus doing nothing, the least you can do is have your fair ready by the time you move to the front of the bus, don't hold the people back that have their pass in hand and are ready to get off the bus.
Finally, I hate the people who feel like thy have to scream into their cell phones in order to have the person on the other end hear them. I don't mind people talking on the phone on the bus but one thing I can't understand is why people just can't understand that the person they are talking to on the phone will be able to hear them just fine if they talk in their normal voice?
These are my top issues with people riding the bus, what are yours?
