Public Transportation Etiquette


So today I was taking the GO Bus and some girl stuck her smelly toes in the space where my arm rest was. Talk about gross!!! The bus was completely quiet except for people listening to music and she was sitting behind me so I didn't ask her to move. Instead, I kind of poked her toes with this plastic bag and she would move it back a little then up again 10 minutes later then I'd put the plastic bag there again. I couldn't wait to get off the bus.

Has anyone else had a bad public transportation experiences and did you ask the person to stop what they were doing?

Talk about bad public transportation experience.
I bet you all has got a story to tell. It really depends on their intention and how annoying they are. Most of the time, they are just bad manners. I hate the ones who put their feet on other chairs in TTC trains. Even having their feet on the side of the seats in front of them are annoying as hell. Thats why I prefer to not sit at the third seat in the row along the windows. I have many more TTC stories to tell but I am still trying to get a girlfriend here. haha
One of my funniest TTC story has got to be the time when i was checking out this girl's awesome cleavage. I was thinking that the chances of me seeing this girl again is probably close to none. So I didn't care much and kept looking.
And then suddenly, she slapped her hand on my lap. My immediate thought is, "Shit!! I am in big trouble now. She is going to oust me the big perv."
Then what she said gave me a relief, "Do I know you? Did you go to A.Y. Jackson?"
And then i remember, "Oh yeah... I remember you too."
Turns out that she is my high school classmate.

umm.. it's kind of creepy that you're checking out her chest...

You can say that

What she was wearing was quite revealing too.
Well i have to say that it is probably not really appropriate to check her out that much. But at least I didn't check her out that way when we were grade 8.

You need to stop that

I'm just going to assume you are a somewhat clueless innocent guy here Hunter, but I have been reading and not saying anything and someone needs to tell you. Don't talk about how desperate you are to meet someone. It makes us all feel uncomfortable. Don't tell us stories about you disrespecting some poor woman on the subway just because you didn't know her by staring all pervy at her cleavage the whole ride. I hate when guys do that to me and consider it extremely disrespectful. Don't tell us you only want to date white girls or that you are jealous about those of us with a sex life (the Diva cup discussion... gross by the way that you would want to participate in that one). These kinds of statements don't endear you at all and in fact is makes me and possibly others feel really uncomfortable.

You can very quickly cross the line from clueless innocent guy to creepy pervy guy. We have all given you our best advice and yet you don't seem to be taking it.

I know that I am ruining it for everyone and trying to delete my account. Only I can't find that option.

Yes, this is very creepy. Disrespectful and creepy.

Glad I wasn't part of that

Agreed. I don't respect men who don't look me in the eye. It makes me feel violated.

ew, I dont usually take public transportation, but i was on the TTC one day, and this dirty man had a cat. The cat smelled so horrible, and at first it was fine but then he put the cat on the seat, took out a cat hairbrush and started bushing the cat! After the hair covered the seat, he took the hairs ( in a ball) off the brush and he just threw them on the floor. Mind you, im allergic to cats so i wasnt happy!
