Aside from the elderly, the disabled, children and pregnant women, the seating on public transportation is pretty much first come first serve.
I am proud to say I am one of the lucky people who get on the bus when it first starts its route. This also means that usually have my pick of seat. However, this also results in glares from the late comers who either have to stand or sit next to the window seat sitting people.
Probably one of the more awkward places to sit are the seats facing towards the aisles where your main view is an ass or a crotch of your fellow passenger. So, no day dreaming allowed.
But as I sit in my sort of comfortable seat (I am on the seat facing the aisle and have a view of the groin of the guy in front of me who is busy looking at his iPad. He better not fall on my because I don’t plan on being polite)… I can’t help but feel the irritation of my fellow passengers. Their jealous energy burns my brain as they awkwardly sway and jolt back and forth and pretend not to care.
And to that I say:
Too bad, so sad.
….Meanwhile I’m just trying to avoid eye contact.
