Share the seats?

Posted on Wed, Jun 25, 2014 at 2:02 PM

So I get the same bus every day during the week at the same time every morning. I'm currently in university and require all my texts throughout the day. Because of this I have a large, not obnoxious bag, that I put on the empty seat next to me. The bus gets maybe half-full by the time we get to the main terminal and I'm lucky to not have to transfer.

Well three stops before the terminal the same two middle-aged men who always stink of smoke, and usually blow their last puff into the bus doors, get on. One of them is now continually asking me to move my bag. At first I would ignore him and he'd go away. I'd make it look like I was listening to headphones but last week this old pervert actually tapped my shoulder and motioned at my bag. The bus was half-full, no window seats, but there were many other places to sit. I told him this and he cursed at me under his breath. I told him I was offended by his stink and not to touch me again and I'd rather stand than sit next to him. This was met by several hushed laughs toward the back of the bus. He then went up and said something to the driver. He quickly sat down in the first seat and kept moaning and groaning and half talking to himself.

I will move my bag when someone actually needs the seat but not so some pervert can try and get a closer look at me. And honestly shouldn't reeking of smoke be considered not scent-free? -Can't wait two more years
