I'm busing this week, and yesterday I didn't get my normal middle higher up seat, so my head was at bag level.
I was smacked in the head with one bag and one guy stood facing me...and his junk was right there. I had to turn my head to the left so it wasn't right in my face (literally).
Ahhh, bus life!

I take transit often and I know it can be annoying. I don't want to seem rude, so I would try not to sniff and hold my breath while occasionally pretending I'm scratching my nose so I can breath something to avoid the smell. If it's really bad and I'm not near my stop, I would get off.

I know, just terrible. i once asked the transit driver if he could maybe use a spray to control the body odour this one particular day and I was told it was not the thing to do and that it would just make the person feel bad.

That's just one reason I ended up with a car. Urgh, buses. The heat can be so unbearable! other people make it so much worse.

So sorry for you, I never take buses, I hate public transport. I love driving my own car.

I fake that the next stop is mine and move towards a door, but I'm really moving to a new spot or seat.

One time I went to see a movie with my husband and there was a spare seat beside us. So this big black guy sits down, but he's an arm spreader, and I like to have a little bit of the arm rest.
Hubby offered to switch, but I didn't want to move because I was worried I'd look racist. >_< How often do we get in uncomfortable situations for politeness sake?

Sometimes people have no choice BUT to take public transportation.
When our newer car (7 years old and a month away from being paid off) was rear ended & totalled last year, we replaced it,
My car was older and with over 280,000km on it - THAT was the car that should of been replaced, but unfortunately it died in the fall.
We were relying on only requiring one car payment, so we just opted for me to bus every 5-6 weeks when I have my 9-5 shift. Otherwise, we car pool in together, as it's easy to drop Husband off at his work, then he buses a short distance to my office after he is done (he ends at 3,I end at 3:30).
So I bus not out of choice, but necessity. Would I love to have a car for those weeks we don't car pool? Yes. It is just not the logical choice when we really only "need" it one week once in a while, to sit in the driveway otherwise.
We chose our home based on eases of highway access, and vicinity to a major bus route just in case we ever did have to bus to/from work.
