    I hate when people sit on the outer seat on the bus when the seat by the window is free and they don't move in even when the bus gets really full :lolwut:
    Oh, that doesn't bother me - prefer windows anyway. I will ask them for the seat, though ... but not before any of the others.

    They're rude to make people feel bad for having a seat - I'll wake them up, but lots wouldn't.

    And I can't learn to drive.

    What do you mean there rude to make people feel bad for having a seat? How do you know they wouldnt move their bags if the bus was full? and also whats wrong with falling asleep on a bus? loads of people use it as their everyday transport and you cant help where you get tired try waking up a narcoleptic person.

    Because lots of people think like this - oh, it seems mean to wake people up. My route is, at most, an hour long and they can go straight back to sleep if they're that tired ... but only a few people will wake them up in the first place.

    And they might, but should be doing it the minute people are looking around for spare seats.

    I see your point but I would only wake them up if there were no other seats available. I don't see the point in being needlessly confrontational.

    Remember, this is the same person who calls security when she sees someone with 11 items standing in the "10 items or fewer" queue at the supermarket. :lolwut:

    This is pretty tame compared to that.

    If there's other seats available then its a bit like you're just doing it for the sake of it and seems a bit unreasonable.

    But if there are no other seats available then I would ask them to move it. It's not like they've paid for an extra ticket for that bag.

    The way people behave in society just pisses me off a lot of the time - I like to fight back in my own way.

    I move my bag automatically off the seat next to me if somebody gets on and there are no other seats... the only reason it's next to me rather than on the floor is for extra leg room.

    I have long legs. I like one leg to be able to stretch out into the aisle. sitting at the window on buses/trains is a nightmare, with your knees mashed up against eh seat in front, every judder sends a bolt of pain from your knees.

    I'm one of the offending people who sometimes puts my bags on the seat next to me, because by the time we get to the last stop, they all smoke, and sorry but.. it stinks.

    You'd wake someone up if there were other seats available? If I was having a bad day and you woke me up because of that I'd honestly hit you in the face. Of course it is "unkind"... Idiots like you really irritate me.

    THIS.
    I'll probably never understand that.

    As for the thread, it's not unkind, although I would just leave people alone if there were other places to sit. I put my gym bag on the seat if the bus is somewhat empty, just because it's too big...
