    Surprised you could fit in the bus with that large sense of entitlement

    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?
    Jesus Christ I deal with that kind of herd everyday. I get up early every day to avoid them!

    OP seems to be one of those people with a special condition who get triggered by certain colours and patterns. I'd recommend that you check it out.

    What did you expect? 'how do people do this everyday'?' I have no choice but to get the bus, but for sure I would rather drive or so but it's cheap and gets me home. Plus not everyone who goes on a bus are weirdos, but it's for everyone so.

    Some of us sometimes cannot avoid using buses, especially when tube workers go on strike or when you do early shifts starting at 6 am. I try to avoid travelling on peak times though, tube trains are the worst at that time of the day :rofl:

    How to get on a bus?

    Just use your feet and step inside. It's not that hard.

    I have to get the bus regularly, and I have to say you do get a bizarre mixture of characters on there, as well as a number of... odours.

    But yeah, suck it up.

    PLEASE dont take this the wrong way but it;s a mixture of modern society being crap and you getting irritated pretty easily.

    For example i definitely agree i HATE people playing crappy modern music at top volume at the back of the bus (especially the year 7 school kids :l they can't shut up for a single second about who they apparantly raped last night > )

    but things like your sense of hygeine is a bit more sensitive than usual. Doesn't matter too much but most people can handle it easily. Also some of us (like me) are forced to travel to secondary school over a longish distance by bus

    btw nice profile picture plus i hope you had a good time at ur friends

    Cab would take too long, so you took a bus?

    What.
