My Public Transit Woes <p>Public Transit makes me uncomfortable at times. I don't use it very often, but when I do, I always run into certain passengers who fall into specific categories of "that's just SO wrong in so many ways!". Here's my top Eight: 1. Funkadelics: there's a putrid, raunchy stench rising from their bodily crevices which they are completely unaware of (or maybe they are and just don't fancy the use of soap and water on an on-going basis) 2. Queen's of England: they decide that they've had a long day of shopping and deserve to take up 2 or 3 seats for themselves and their lovely shopping bags (I mean, at least offer to move your stupid bags if you see an elderly person or a pregnant woman approach!) 3. Yippity-yaps: not only are they yapping away on their cell phone, but they are being extremely loud and obnoxious too (trust me--we don't care to know why Larry left Miranda standing at the altar or why you are having a bad&nbsp; hair day!) 4. Unbearables: nose-pickers, belchers, and&nbsp;bomb droppers&nbsp;(nuff said) 5. Lack Lusters: they are hacking/coughing up a storm, blowing their nose every 30 seconds, and their eyes are bloodshot...clearly you are too sick to be out and about! Take your butt home and stay in bed! WE DON'T WANT YOUR GERMS!!! 6. Nosey Nellies &amp; Pervs: either one's constant staring is enough to make anyone feel uneasy! Can't you see, that I can clearly see you staring at me??? GEESH!&nbsp;7. Questionables: those who you see shamelessly munching away on fries, a bag of chips, even a burger...do you not know how many disgusting germs are found on Public Transit? The mere thought of scarfing down a tuna sandwich on a packed bus/train terrifies me!!! Ew. 8. Uppitys: they walk through the subway stations and onto the public transit with a certain air about them...noses touching the clouds, maybe even a little smirk on their face. They behave as though they are better than the rest of the passengers...NEWS FLASH: Buddy, you are riding the same bus/train&nbsp;as the rest of us! We don't care if your bmw is "in the shop".&nbsp;</p> <p>Obviously, there are no real rules when using Public Transit, but I'd like to think that the above considerations are examples of "what not to do".&nbsp; If you happen to be an offender of 1 or maybe even more of these categories, then I'd suggest you take a good, hard look in the mirror the next time you plan to step foot on a bus or a train...but, this is just&nbsp;a suggestion&nbsp;and you don't have to take it!&nbsp; But I can almost guarantee you that you will make a few enemies if you continue with such behaviour!!!&nbsp;</p> <p>(Side Note: I realize the below picture is not that of the Toronto Transit Commission, however, I liked the composition of it and decided to use it anyway)<br /><a style="display: inline;" href="http://aznesq.typepad.com/.a/6a0133ed842a55970b013480b82f1c970c-pi"><img class="asset asset-image at-xid-6a0133ed842a55970b013480b82f1c970c image-full " title="Subway" src="http://aznesq.typepad.com/.a/6a0133ed842a55970b013480b82f1c970c-800wi" border="0" alt="Subway" /></a></p>
