The cutting board one is a stunt but I still love it.

Seen some crazy things on the bus. I like to play a game I call "Spot the Tweaker". It's pretty fun, but you can only play it on the "easy" difficulty setting.

My favorite sport in the world to watch is BART surfing, where shiitake faced people attempt to stay standing on the BART (a very lurchy commuter train).

I take a bus that goes for about an hour with no stops two days a week. The other day a busker got on and proceeded to play really, really bad bowdlerizations of famous songs with the lyrics all changed to things about mother earth and protecting the planet. After holding us captive for an hour, she told us all loudly how we owed her money for enjoying her music during the ride. It was awe-inspiring.

(Also, she had the most aggro vibe ever.)

I like to watch Subway Surfing too! It's always the tourists/subway noobs that take their sweet time looking for a handhold or sitting down, and when the train starts moving, they inevitably go flying.

The ones I can not stand are the early morning preachers.

Still, I'm pretty sure I've been on train rides very much like all three.

The butt-pole one is pretty hot, if you ask me.

Yep, it is super funny to make fun of a woman's butt and position on public transit.

Sometimes I complain about commuting by car and then I remember it could be so much worse, especially for a grouch like me! Bad traffic is the pits but it would be so much worse to have a butt in my face or have to listen to someone evangelize!

Aisle seat snobs are the bane of my existence. They are an ongoing pet peeve of mine.

I especially hate when you try to get in or out of the window seat next to them (after braving the withering look you get for even daring to ask to sit there), they actively refuse to get up to let you pass, instead just drawing their legs together, as if I, my asparagus, and my bag are all going fit through the 5 inch space between their knees and the seat in front of them. In situations like that, I feel no remorse whatsoever when they get a facefull of my backpack and/or butt as I'm trying to squeeze past them.

usually I'm ok with public transport, but this morning I had a handbag in my face for most of the trip AND the girl just coughed on me. Without covering her mouth! I could *feel* it!!

I'm kind of lucky. VRE is pretty quiet in the mornings. When my new job starts, I may be driving all the time. Either way, it's only 20 minutes, so I'm lucky.

YES! And this always happens on the express train that is packed!

This annoys me soooo much! I usually go out of my way to make sure my bag and/or my butt annoys them as I try to squeeze past.

I'd rather stand than deal with that. In fact, I'd rather stand than be stuck sitting next to anybody. Not particularly fond of having strangers touch me. And you never know when some ginormous guy might try to squeeze in next to you.

ETA: Or stinky homeless people! It's especially bad here in the middle of summer when it's 115 outside.

Thread title is misleading. I commute, but I've never peed in my car seat and left myself a note about it, or chopped onions while riding my motorcycle to work.

I sat in pee once on the subway on my way home from a PPK meetup! (The one where we met at Hot Beans--I was grateful it happened on my way home, rather than on my way there.) True story!
