No. I'd have done the same. A seat is for someone to sit down on, not for them to leave their bags. Put them on your lap or between your legs on the floor.(Original post by TheSownRose)
When I get on a bus I look, as you do, for two adjacent seats free. Failing that, I'm forced to pick someone to sit next to. Imagine I can see a seat that is beside the aisle and open to sit in, and another seat that is any of the following three:
1) Next to the window, and the person is asleep.
2) Next to the aisle, has bags on it, and the person is asleep.
3) Has bags on it.
I will wake the person up and/or make them move their bags (politely, of course) rather than take the open seat.
The way I see it, those people put their bags there and/or fell asleep to put people off of sitting next to them - they shouldn't get away with it, when other people are respectful with seats on a bus. By all means put your bags on the seat there are five people on the bus, but if it's a busy line, it's just not good.
Is this unkind of me?

If people want to sleep undisturbed on this bus/public transport then they shouldn't sit in the aisle seat instead of the window seat. If they do this then they've no right to complain, should of sat in the window seat, shouldn't they?
I actually have that problems on planes a lot, people booking an aisle seat and then getting pissy when I dare disturb them from their sleep so I can go to toilet/whatever. If you don't want to be disturbed during the flight, don't book a fricking aisle seat, ********. I'm not holding it in/sitting still for 8 hours just so you can enjoy a nice little nap.

I understand the bag thing, but maybe the people are genuinely asleep? And why would you need to wake them up to sit next to them?
