    This black man once told me off for staring at him on the bus.

    I was honestly only daydreaming in his direction, then BAM, all of a sudden he's in my face saying angry black man stuff and I'm like oh Jesus he's really black, I'm probably going to die now, but it was cool in the end, I'm not sure what I said but he laughed and stuff.

    Now there's this uneasy truce between us but I'm still to scared to sit on the back row of the bus, that's where he sits because he's a real badman .

    No, never. It's socially unacceptable and creepy.

    Edit: Ok, maybe once to ask the time or something or a random passing comment, but nothing more.
    that frog is AWESOME

    on topic, I've never heard more anti-social behaviour, and round here ASBOs are a dime a dozen! what happened to the friendly bus Brits?

    Every now and then you get the annoying chav with a cap perched on his head who gives a cheeky little wink and a creeper stare.
    I feel like smacking them across the head with my umbrella.

    I never initiate conversation with strangers on public transport, the only time i've ever done this was when we were sitting behind a well known ex professional footballer on the way back from an England friendly. If he was an average bloke i'd probably have left him alone.
    Was it Chris Kamara? :awesome:

    I've chatted to a few people on public transport and exchanged contact details, not in a fanciable way though, just because we started chatting and found we had something in common and had a good conversation. I LOVE random convos so as long as you weren't a bit of a dodgy weirdo I'd be glad!

    On public transport i only get the old men that strike up conversation, they're lovely
    Not public transport but i walk to college everyday and there's about 5 people i pass on the way who all say good morning and stirke up a very quick conversation, i live in a pretty crap area so it's nice to get the occasionaly nice randomers

    One time I was on the (very packed) bus and some old guy sat next to me and asked me how old I was (I was 17) and then he said "we can't get married then" and then he went on to say, "I shouldn't be talking to you" :eek:

    People have started talking to me on the bus before - I don't ignore them or anything but I just find it awkward as my bus is really quiet and everyone turns round/listens to your conversation
    But I've had a few drunken conversations too

    I met one of my friends on the train, we spoke on fb and met up properly, hard to believe the convo starter was about a podcast

    I've had weird men approach me which isn't nice but I also made friends with a girl on a megabus journey when our coach was delayed for 3 hours because of snow. And we're still in touch now! So public transport isn't always full of creeps.

    A small child decided I was some kind of bus God and asked me where the bus was every 10 seconds at a bus stop once...
    And a random old lady on a bus once told me I had beautifully coloured hair.

    Old people always talk to me on public transport. That is why I always try and get a seat as near the back as possible.

    Nope, would love to meet him though. I'd probably shout 'UNBELIEVABLE JEFF' at the top of my voice.

    I've never spoken to a stranger on the train unless it's to wake them up when I've heard them state their destination when buying a ticket and they've fallen asleep.
    And nobody has ever spoken to me.
    The joys of headphones.

    Well I was on this bus one time, and a fat 16yo girl came and sat in the seat in front of me. She was a bit chavvy and after a while she said "I am not going to bite you" in an attempt to get a conversation going. My stop came 30 seconds after this and I ignored her until the end:creep:

    I don't want to have a child and become one of those chavvy teen parents who spend all day at train stations with prams, smoking. :grr:
    I couldn't agree more; it's painful enough just seeing people like that.

    No, never. I'm always the only person on the bus. :sad:

    No. Creepy old people sometimes try and talk to me, but that's about it. Why, do you have a story you want to tell?
    Be glad! One time I was on the bus when some teenage children decided to start making some form of music video! :facepalm:

    Needless to say, I felt like dying. :dry:
