it smells like dust and moon light
What is your main method of transportation, FAF?
Public transport's for poor people
Nah, not being of legal age, my city of residence being quite large, and the lack of a semi-decent transport system forces me to be driven around by my parents in either of their cars.

I ride the world-famous rattle-trap public bus system of Cleveland, or I walk. Americans are really funny about seating on public transit. Like, you'll get on a bus, and exactly half of the seats will be filled because everyone spreads out as much as possible so they don't have to sit next to someone else. Some people even do this asshole thing where they'll sit in the aisle seat and stick their backpack or whatever in the window seat, and then even if the bus fills to capacity and people are standing in the aisle holding onto the metal handholds, they won't move. And then sometimes the front of the bus will fill up completely with people standing when there are three or four open seats in the back. But I guess it's better to be crammed like sardines into the front of the bus than to have to sit down next to somebody you don't know.
Odd, I'd say that without the sarcasm. :vM. Le Renard said:But I guess it's better to be crammed like sardines into the front of the bus than to have to sit down next to somebody you don't know.
Oh, I think it's just silly mostly. It's probably an artifact of the wide-open spaces Americans have become accustomed to. You know. Everyone has to have a house with a lawn and a backyard and a side yard, so we all stay away from each other all the time, and hence when you ride the bus you still want to stay away from everyone. The funniest thing is that it appears to be subconscious, like everyone just has this unspoken order given to them to not sit next to someone else if you can help it, and so every time you get on the bus you see this spacing-out behavior happen. Call it 'American bus entropy' or something.
