>A friend of mine told me he hates the bus because people always make you feel bad when you just want to sit down. All of the single seats get taken, and then people act as if you are invading their space when you have to double up. It’s not like I’m trying to sit at your same table in a restaurant. It is for this reason that today I kept moving past the old woman that had her Bartell’s bag on the open seat and sat down next to a normal-looking guy busy playing on his cell phone. My intuition was correct because as soon as a woman wanted to sit down on the blocked seat, the old woman gave a heavy sigh and forcefully moved her bag to her lap. At the same time an ambulance was passing by and the crazy old bat dropped her bag on the floor and covered both ears with her fuzzy blue gloves.
