The Woes of the Vertically Challenged.

Posted on Thu, Jan 14, 2010 at 6:46 PM

Here is my bitch. I am short (5 ft), I understand the world should not cater to my height, however, I should not have to put my life in danger every time I board a crowded bus. If the bus does not have the hanging grey handles I cannot reach the bar to hold on and so I am left to the mercy of the sway of the bus. Yes I can hold on to the poles. but they are only located near the doors of the bus, and when the bus is crowded I cannot guarantee I'll be anywhere near them. I feel my gripe is not unreasonable and I'm sure anyone who I have fallen upon while riding the bus would greatly appreciate it if more of the buses had those hanging grey handles or any form of handle more suited to those of us who are vertically challenged.
