    Down in Brighton on a train and it was like sardines on a Friday night, wasn't on for long but it was horrific how we were all packed in so tight.

    I remember ages ago on the way home from college there was a wasp flying around the bus and people were freaking out like ****ing numptees. Just swat it away if it comes near you, what's the f***ing point of running up and down the gangway :rofl:

    It was a Saturday evening and I was travelling down to Bolton with my partner to visit a friend and instead of driving, we took the train for a change and everything was fine on the Transpennine train but when we got on the train from Preston to Bolton, there were these 'chavs' for a better word sitting a few seats behind me and my partner. I noticed they were laughing and mocking our accents on the platform but I ignored it and I didn't realise they were sitting near us until they started shouting abuse at us.

    At first it was digs like "haw scum, let us hear your accent again" and we just ignored them and then it was more taunting and mocking what we wearing and called us a derogatory term for Scot. I can't remember what it was now but I asked my English friend what it meant and she told me. Then they said if we didn't turn around they would attack us and one of them threw something at my head, I think it was those balls you can make by wrapping lots of rubber bands around together, I only saw it for a second after it hit the floor and rolled away.

    There were people in the carriage too but they didn't look up or bat an eyelid. The journey wasn't long but I had never felt so unsafe in all my life and it took everything for me to not react or snap but thankfully we got off the train and they stayed on it.

    When I was living in turkey , I had to get the local bus to work called the dolmus (it literally translates into English as 'stuffed'). It was like the size of a camper van and they crammed on as many people as physically possible . In June it was 50 degrees so u do the maths haha. :laugh:

    I also remember traveling down to London few years back and was in an empty carriage and a bloke who must have had appalling hygiene decided to sit right next to me.

    I was pressed against this hot girl's boobs on the train once. It was unpleasant because she had terrible BO.

    Did like the boobs though.

    -My school bus crashed when I was in year 9. The double-decker I was riding T-Boned a driver backing out. He was fine, but his car was not... We had to leave and get on another bus...

    -A tree branch smashed the entire front window of another double-decker and sent glass everywhere, I was never cool enough to sit on the top deck though.

    -The Northern Line in general, you could torture someone by making them ride that at rush-hour, I am stunned that people are just OK with it...

    Drunk guy on the bus sat right next to me on the way home at night. Kept asking me personal questions and there was two teens on the bus just laughing and smiling. Parred him off loads of times though.

    I told him I worked at a supermarket currently and he kept taking the piss but I told him I'm going to work the NHS and he shut his gob then.
