more than your allotment

Thursday, August 28, 2008

i was reminded of why i hate riding the bus. i havent really needed to for 2 years now and now that im reliant on public transportation to get me to work/school, i remember why it sucked so bad back in high school. im not the smallest person in the world so i make full use of my allotted square on my seat on the bus. i CANNOT STAND when a person who knows they take up more than that alottment *PLOPS* down next to me. why could you have not chosen to ride in tandem with the 90 lb teen-aged girl a few seats away? simple math says that is she uses about a little more than half the square and you require roughly a square and a half, you both would be more comfortable. what sense does it make to overlap your wide hips w/ mine? all that elbow in my rib cage is not appreciated nor welcomed. i should be allowed to charge your ASS rent! this has been a rant brought to you by Antithesis....

Aw man. The story of my life right here. ALL people LOVE sitting next to me cause I'm small and it SUCKS. There is a way public transportation riders... whether you take up more than your allotment or not, to sit without touching me and I suggest you all figure it out. Otherwise I will kindly get up and move to another seat and not feel bad about it.

LOVE THIS RANT!!!

LOL.

I can't remember the last time I rode on public transportation but, thinking back, I can remember the feel of an elbow in my rib cage.

Funny post, Ashley.

Haha, I see that all the time on the train. Once there were 2 people that each needed both seats trying to cram together. I imagine it was a very painful ride!

I would say the same thing to myself when this woman would always decide to sit next to me when there were size 2 women sitting by an empty seat. I guess I will never get it.
