    That all sounds like a you problem.


    "dreaded thinking about who sat there before" - unless you're at home that is true for any seat anywhere.

    The rest of that nonsense is just you being annoyed by a grouping of people. How do you spend time in any crowed?

    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.
    What time did you get on?

    It also heavily depends on which route the bus takes...

    I only travel to and from work, so it's not a big deal at all.

    No screaming kids, no push chairs, no chavs, just working people.

    I got on at 4pm, so peak time for kids going home, and chavs who have nothing better to do. I don't think I'll take another bus journey; at least on trains there's a first class carriage and everyone is quiet, plus everything is clean.

    I always do, but this was an unexpected, time-dependent journey and the bus was right there. Never again; I'll risk being late if something like this happens again.

    If I may, might I suggest headphones? I have pretty bad anxiety especially with buses, but I can tune it out by focusing on my music. Perchance something similar might aid you?

    Somewhere in South East England. This experience will never be repeated.

    I had headphones in for the second half of the journey. Thery still didn't blot out the mess, unhygienic and uncomfortable seats, and the bus constantly stopping and starting.

    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?
    WELL ARENT YOU A RICH SPECIAL COOKIE?

    People get buses out of necessity and its pretty ridiculous that you're judging everyone on the bus as ugly and stupid. If you're so great then you should have just waited for the taxi or hire a chauffeur whatever you stuck up ****s do

    For what it's worth I'm in the South East as well. I think that's more a matter of just the wrong bus, I can't imagine all of them being that bad. Maybe ours here in Crawley just aren't that bad hygienewise.

    Idk man, best of luck to you.

    I do think it's unfair that middle class people who have just by accident of circumstance have ended up having to use the bus, have to share with the proles and underclass.

    An idea could be that Waitrose could supply their own minibuses or something for cardholders. Or maybe a horse that you could ride from place to place like a Boris bike.

    Now we're talking. They could have a cup holder for each seat for the current free coffee for cardholders, and enough room to read the free newspaper properly.

    Waitrose? I think you'll find OP is above that peasantry and he's waiting for Harrod's to expand across the UK for a tuk tuk service
