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?

the incosiderance of tube users
i was on the northern line going from waterloo to leicester square in one summer evening, for beers, when i pregnant lady got on at enbankment, at the other end of the packed carriage. i noticed her, so did everyone else.

but no cunt offered her a seat. and i was at the other end of the carraige. what could i do?

then i did something. god knows how i didnt get stabbed. i hollered really loudly, "excuse me love!! HELLO! YEA YOU, PREGNANT LADY, YOU CAN HAVE MY SEAT IF YOU WANT!!" she smiled as no other wanker had offered. but no one would move and let her through to sit down.

i lost it. i got up and literally barged through the carraige and took her hand, smiled and said, "come with me love" so she smiled and followed me. i sat her down, and loudly complained about the "FUCKING SELFISH CUNTS WHO CANT EVEN OFFER A LADY THEIR SEAT." she whole heartedly agreed and was secretly laughing at my sheer guts at insulting the whole carraige. we spoke for few minutes too, and she was a lovely lady.

she thanked me and i was on my way. made me feel great.

please offer the elderley, pregnant, retarded etc your seat. i know you paid for it but come on, its common courtesy. is it just me or does anyone else agree with this?

I think anyone with a degree of common decency agrees.
The tube does turn ordinarily nice people into total twats, though.

I did yesterday
to an old guy who looked as though he'd fall over as soon as he got onto the train. He looked really shocked and kept saying thank you over and over.

This concept does not exist in Switzerland and practising it here makes people deeply suspicious of, but doesn't stop me.

To certain people who can't help the situation they're in, I agree.
But becoming pregnant is a choice the pregnant woman would have made. Why should her decision affect me when I've had no say in the matter? She would have known what she was getting into, and I would expect this to apply to me if I were ever that stupid or selfish enough to decide my decisions should make others give up seats although it's not their fault.
