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?

Wrong bloody bus
If I ever need to go to Newcastle I jump on the bus rather than drive (I hate trying to park in Newcastle). This involves getting on the express bus and arriving 30 minutes or so later after a nice ride up the A19.

One day we took my cousins up to Newcastle for the day. Now it so happens I was on tablets that had a very definite diuretic effect. I went before we left the house, and again before we got on the bus figuring 30 minutes is a piece of piss to hold onto my piss. Now, did I mention there were two express buses to Newcastle? No? Ah well, I didn't know at the time myself.

We boarded the bus and set off. 20 minutes later my bladder started screaming at me. No problem if I was on the bus that goes straight down the A19, big problem when the bastard is going through Durham and a million little villages to get to Newcastle. It took over an hour to get there. By the time we were approaching Gateshead I was sweating, cursing, and all but ready to just pee myself to stop the agony of a bursting bladder.

I managed to hold on till we got to the bus station in Newcastle, ran for the loos, spent a minute looking for a 20p bloody coin, only to see someone coming out the automatic loo as I ran to it. The door shut and I had to wait another bloody minute before I could finally pee. Never abloodygain will I go on a bus when I'm on diuretic tablets.
