Today when i went on the bus it really stank so i sat down and held my nose.
I was feeling a but nauseous before that and the smell just made it worse.

There was only a family on the bus and a guy sitting at the back.

The family got off after two stops. At this point, i couldn't take it
and opened the window closest to me. After 5 min, i heard a bang and the guy who was sitting at the back slammed my window closed.

I looked at him in shock and he wouldn't give my any eye contact. He was fuming and swearing.

I wanted to open the window again because i was suffocating and on the verge of vomiting but i was terrified because it was only me and him on the bus so i just sunk lower into my seat.

What should i have done?

What if he had a weapon? I've been threatened on the bus before

Would it have been possible to change your seat, to some place away from him?

Get off the bus and wait for the next one or probably walk? Idk.

Honestly, if it was as bad as you say it was how would you just sit their and take the smell in??

Surely if the smell was that bad he would've smelt it and realised why the window was open?

I don't know. He could have just asked. Why are people so rude

Yes, but i think he got mad when he saw me holding my nose. Probably thought i was implying that it was him.

He may have had a bunged up nose, maybe like the equivalent of having a bath plug stuffed up your nostril so he couldn't detect the smell
