    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'.
    the Truth that you see is from the perspective of a self obsessed egotistical person who doesn't give af about others. unfashionable? fat? ugly?

    seriously? you're just being a ****head towards others for no reason.

    Im so sorry that your majesty was forced to go on a bus with normal human beings. clearly it was a great offence to you, and those people need to be punished for looking like themselves. its such a crime.

      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?
      People who use buses mostly cant afford their own car or motorbike. They are also likely too lazy, fat or just plain unfit to use a bicycle. These are not going to be pleasant individuals. Usually just riffraff going across town to see their dealer.

      Buses wouldnt be so bad if they didnt stop every 10 yards. Again this is bus companies catering to people too lazy to walk an extra few yards so will put too many stops in place.

      What is also particularly annoying is they dont run buses on Friday and Saturday nights from the city pubs. The bus companies would make a killing off it as taxis are ridiculously expensive. Bus rides would be easier when your pissed aswell. Would make going out at night easier.

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

      What.
      The bus was just pulling into the stop, it was freezing outside and I needed to get there quickly. I thought by the time I'd waited for the cab then been driven to the destination, it would have taken longer than to take the bus, as it was only a 2 mile journey. Sadly, I was wrong and I've learned from this mistake.

      I must take a bus to school due to the travel time and the only issue is the degenerates who are at my school who share the bus. But i must laugh and agree with the OP in some way, if you get on a bus in the wrong area and or the wrong time you en up with issues.

      My issues are:
      Full of smelly old folk
      People eating soup
      Long travel times (pinnacle of inefficiency)
      uncomfortable seating
      and if the heaters are on they turn into a BO box

      Imagine a bus stopping to let people off! :eek: How inconsiderate of the other passengers, they really should have just waited, got off at your stop and then walked. :sadnod: I mean it's not like they paid for their ticket the same as you did or anything.....
