    Ill start:

    - at stations with barriers, people getting off the train forcing their way through both sides of it when your train is about to leave.
    - People who act drunk
    - people with bikes/animals blocking the doors
    - this guy farted last night and it was one that you had to hold your nose for
    - people who put feet on the seats when the trains full

    You can tell I hate it by now
    Sweaty people in summer.
    Sneezing and coughing people who do not cover their mouth.
    Lots of people.

    It annoys me when people take up more room than they should, especially when you can tell that what is going through their head goes a little something like this:
    "If I sit with my legs really widely open, everyone will think I have a massive **** and therefore cannot shut my legs, this will get me girls. Oh and while I'm at it, I'm gonna keep 'accidentally' touching you, and when I stand up to leave I will 'happen' to touch your boob"

    Bus drivers who drive slowly when there's no reason.
    People who stop the bus then someone else stops it 300 feet further down the same street. -_-
    Fat people who take up more than one seat to themselves. (I really think they should be made to pay double.)

    When trains wait for ages at a station with the doors open. Hordes of kids getting on a bus. Fat people who spill over the armrest onto me. People who sit next to me when there are neighbour-free seats available.
    I lol'd! You make it sound like they're made of liquid :laugh:

    When there's a can or a bottle rolling around from the front to the back of the bus. :unimpressed:
    Or when someone spills a drink and it rolls around everywhere and leaves stick trails.
    Or when people eat KFC and leave the box with bones all over the floor and on the seat, and it stinks and looks gross and attracts flies in the summer.

    -When I used to get the train to Victoria for school my sister and I would get touched up by a pervert and it was difficult to get away from him because the trains were so full people everyone was invading eachother's space.

    -I hate it when I sit next to a smelly middle aged balding guy, they smell worse than tramps.

    -The new London Overground trains are made like the tube so when people stand their genitals are in your face. A guy was standing in front of me and he wasn't holding onto anything, thinking he was so macho aand his genitals hit me when the train jerked, I was so embarassed bu he seemed to find it amusing.

    -Stupid year 7/8s listening to dire music.
    - Mothers travelling at rush hour with snotty kids who don't stop crying, a lot of the time they use the pushchair to hit people and end up blocking the gangway.

    I can't stand it when people just stare at you, fair enough there isn't much to actually look at on a train but I remember being stared at by several older members of the public because I had my iPod on with headphones. I'd glance over every 30 seconds or so and they'd just glare into my soul!

    -People who use their baggage to take up another seat, or just sit on the aisle seat, pretty much blocking anyone from sitting next to them.

    -People who talk too loudly and are pretty much shouting- I had some really scouse women chatting with her husband the other day, pretty much yelling at each other on a half-empty train.

    - People who are carrying way to many things. A man sat opposite me the other day with about 5 different pieces of computer in boxes, it took me about 2 minutes just to get out of the aisle, he kept hitting my leg with these big, heavy boxes as well, and he was speaking Afrikaans which was just irritating more than anything else.

    -People who bring their bikes on trains- I mean come on, you've got your own transport, can't you just cycle to wherever you're going? They are so inconvienient its unreal!

    -I got on the train as normal the other day, and an entire class of school children got on the same carriage. Almost all the seats were taken when I got on, which was unusual, so I just stood up, the next station, an entire class of kids and their teachers got on and stayed there for a full 20 minutes and got off at the same time as me, they were screaming, shouting, and whenever the train stopped they flew about 200 yards down the carriage. Not to mention, there was someone next to me who I genuinely think may have **** himself, he stunk of dung!

    -Don't even get me started on those peasant boxes called buses.... XD

    Oh it was a scary experience, coming back from manchester i think, and they were a couple of boys acting really drunk 1 in paritcular, we got on the train and wow they came on as well, but the police as well. And the police gave them a big lecture and they got off the train.

    Looks like everything's been covered :lol:

    I generally won't bother sitting down if i know it's gonna be busy cos i hate having to squeeze past people to get off or blocking them off lol. I hate when you're sitting opposite somebody and they just stare at you for the whole journey. Was gonna say people who eat but i do that, only when there's nobody around me though. When you can hear someone's music despite them having headphone's on, i'm always really self conscious about how loud my music is as to not annoy the hell out of everyone else. Never had a problem with paying the bus driver with notes/ the wrong amount though

    Going down the stairs on a bus. At both the top and bottom, you have the awkward moment where you don't know whether to move or let the other person go first.

    Not annoying as such but you do think "**** you all" when boarding a full bus knowing you have to stand (and move on and off the bus whenever a pushchair wants to get on/off).

    Overhearing teenage dramas. When you hear a girl moan about what was said by her crush on Facebook or a boy moaning about what a girl said in college, you wonder how these people usually cope.

    Chavettes.

    They are FAR worse than chavs, their music is louder and they speak in this frustratingly annoying way. Thats why i plug in my music and just ignore everything going on every morning lol.

    -When people bring their bikes on to trains and take up loads of room, especially if it's full.
    -People who stand up like 5 whole minutes before their stop...it's not going to go without letting you get off, idiots.
    -When you get to the platform and the door shuts as soon as you get there.
    -The way trains only come to small towns once an hour. I live 10 miles from my sixth form centre, if I miss my train, I'm screwed.
    -When people you don't know sit next to you and the train isn't full.
    I've had a guy demand I took my bag off the seat next to me so he could sit down
    The bus was half empty

    :mad2:
    I know what you mean about the wide legs thing.

    Obviously as a man, I can't relate to the "accidental" boob touch but if I was a girl and that happened to me, I'd "accidentally" kick the guy in his imaginary massive ****. Seriously, everytime I read these type of threads, there are always some stories of a girl getting touched up, haven't seen any incidents of it IRL thankfully.

    Urgh. Id've refused and politely told him there were many other seats available.

    People can be so annoying.
