    I travelled on a bus today, for the first time in my life, to see a friend. There was no train route, and a cab would have taken too long. I reluctantly got on the bus, with complete weirdos.

    The seats had an ugly pattern and I dreaded thinking who else had sat on them and what their hygiene was like. The other passengers were a mixture of loud, inconsiderate, unfashionable, fat, ugly and just stupid. People got on and off at every single stop, despite some stops being about thirty foot away from each other. People were faffing about with change; why can't they get this or their bus card/app ready before they actually get on the bus? The bus was dirty, had litter and graffiti everywhere and was cold. There were chavs playing awful music, shouting and taking up too many seats. I'm never getting on a bus again; how do people do this everyday?

    Not all bus journeys are the same. Allso pattern on the seats usually varies between regions, since some regions are operated by different bus companies.

    I like bus journeys, since the seats are very comfortable, depending on the route I take there will hardly be any disturbance, free wifi and great scenery at times (in Nottingham that is, and sometimes in Swansea).

    buses are not bad. I repeat: they are NOT BAD.

    it just matters about the people who are on it. and there is a reason for why there are stops: so people can get on and off it. just deal with it.

    I have one, but it was a situation where the bus would have been 'faster', as it was a very unplanned journey.

    As above. There was someone on the bus called Courtney who was arguing with some other chav about who owed who the McDonald's meal they were about to have.

    I used my eyes; it's not my fault if the truth is 'rude'.

    I haven't been on a peasant wagon for ages but they're not that bad you know.

    My only problem with them is children and mothers (predominantly) who can't control their "perfect little jimmy", even when he was kicking the seat of an elderly lady.

    I have a solution for you OP - GET A CAR!

    It's ugly to distract you because of how unhygienic it is. I don't hate buses but don't need to take them constantly, not every bus journey is the same tbh. Sometimes you get some great gossip about Jimmy and Catrina up the tree.

    Every experience I've had with buses hasn't been great... Mostly because they're never actually there and I've been waiting in the cold for 45 minutes for an every ten minute bus service..
    I'm more of a train person anyway

    I know the feeling!!!!!! I only use buses in my hometown but even then very rarely. I tend to put headphones in and shut myself off from the world for the journey.

    My headphones did not stop the graffiti and litter, knowing the seats were unclean and the bus repeatedly stopping and starting because of people who couldn't possibly walk thirty feet.
