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?

Giving your seat to elderly people on the bus (btw: why do they travel during rush hours - shuldn't they be at home drinking coffee / stroking their cat / reuniting with their long lost son / writing memoirs) is a nice habit. I usually do so - my parents were decent folk and brought me up decent. But every once in a while I can't be bothered to stand up. That's always a mistake. I've been:
-poked at
-commented ostensibly by a group of five nuns (particularly spooky)
-'accidentally' hit with an umbrella/flower pot
-sat upon
-traumatized in many over ways I can't remember. Because it was traumatic.

I'm the same
and half of the old sods don't bother to say thank you. I preferred it when they couldn't get free travel before or after a certain time. That was when the bus drivers called them "twirlies". As in "Am I too early?" Say it out loud for best effect!
