An open letter

Dear People who think that their purse/briefcase/grocery bag deserves its own seat on the bus, not matter how full the bus is,

You are wrong.

Ah! But what if your briefcase or purse is pregnant?

When I used the bus, I used to punish those people by finding them and asking if I could sit there. Sometimes even if there were other open seats. They can't really say no. Fuckers.

You know, you guys should find a way to punish these people. Ooh, I know, you should put a bomb on a bus. Then when the bus goes over 50 mph, the bomb arms itself. Then if the bus slows down and goes below 50mph. It blows up. Then, you...oh, right.

I used to do this on the Hampton Jitney bus from NYC to the Hamptons. I would also pretend to be asleep so that someone had to muster up the audacity to ask me to move my bag.

In my defense, this was a two hour bus ride in a bus liner that was so much awesomer without fat dudes touching my elbow.

perhaps it's not that the person thinks their bag deserves a chair, maybe they just don't want to sit next to you. well, not YOU exactly, but someone they don't know, strangers are scary. or maybe it is you, who knows.

But see, what bugs me is that people do this when the bus is so overly full that many people are standing up. I mean, one hopes that people would give up their seat to an old person who was standing, but I've seen people who wouldn't give up their shopping bag's seat to an elderly passenger. That's just jerk.
