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?

We appear to have returned
And to celebrate, a story from some friends:

Some friends were once on the train down through England to see Metallica play in Milton Keynes. Why so many big bands play in Milton Keynes I don't know, but that's where they were headed anyway.

So about half way down through England, they are sitting on the train when all of a sudden it gets very noisy, and then the train starts to slow down. Slow down to a crawl.

So they eventually pull into the next station, and all go to get off the train, as apparently it is no longer in use. The reason?

One of the doors had blown out while the train was going at full speed. If someone had been walking past, they could well have got sucked out the door.

They then had to wait in the station for about 2 hours until another train turned up to get them.

They made it to the concert though, and it was amazing. I was jealous.

I was once standing on a platform, in front of the yellow line. A high speed train went past, and I was sucked off.

That was a great journey.
