Transit LosersI have a serious problem with Transit Losers.
They come in many forms, but I have itemized the top three idiots:
- Seat Savers: People who sit on the aisle seat, with their bag/backpack or imaginary friend taking up the other seat. Most of them stare straight ahead, ignoring everyone who passes by. Not such a big deal when the bus is near empty, but hugely aggravating when it is near full.
- Space Hoarders: All the seats are taken, so the remaining people must stand. Then some idiot stops halfway down the bus or train, with 20 or more feet behind them while the front of the bus is packed tighter than a sardine can. These losers seem deaf to the repeated from the driver to "Move back please!"
- Door Clogs: People who stand right next to the exit/entrance doors, but don't actually get off the bus/train. Here in Vancouver, we have the SkyTrain, which has 2 doors. Frequently people stand right at the doors, so that when the train stops at the station, only 1 or 2 people at a time can get off/on the train. Causes major congestion and bustling. In some cases, people trying to get on can't do so before the train leaves.
