This is a question Public Transport Trauma

Completely Underwhelmed writes, "I was on a bus the other day when a man got on wearing shorts, over what looked like greeny grey leggings. Then the stench hit me. The 'leggings' were a mass of open wounds, crusted with greenish solidified pus that flaked off in bits as he moved."

What's the worst public transport experience you've ever had?

I do it!
I regularly travel with a toddler on Virgin trains, and we almost always use the quiet coach.

Why? Because it's the one in which he's most likely to be quiet. Two year olds don't (or at least my two year old doesn't) like noise any more than the rest of us, and in a nice quiet coach he'll almost invariably settle down with a book, or small piece of paper, or whatever's amusing him on the day. On the rare occasions when he doesn't, and decides to make noise, we go next door.

The real art of travelling with a small child is finding the table-for-four which a snotty business person is trying to keep to themselves (aisle seat, laptop in front of them papers all over the table, luggage on the seats opposite), smilingly take the "vacant" seats and watch the bugger squirm.
