People say life is the thing, but I prefer reading*
 

MySpace

One of my many pet hates is having my personal space invaded. I cannot stand it when a stranger gets too close to me but it always seems to happen to me, particularly on public transport. I'm relatively short, and only a tiny bit overweight, and I always keep all parts of me and my belongings on MY side of the seat (unless it's particularly quiet and I can get a seat to myself).

Unfortunately this seems to attract larger or more statuesque persons to come and sit next to me - I can see them as they get on, looking for small people and eyeing up all the lovely space they can hog - and I end up crammed up against the window, unable to move my arms more than half an inch without touching some part of the Larger Person. This prohibits necessary morning distractions such as reading the Metro and fiddling with my iPod, unless I'm happy to have my elbows in between folds of someone else's fat. Which I am most definitely NOT.

I do stand by what I said the other day about enjoying taking the bus, but on this morning's journey I wanted to shout OH MY GOD KEEP YOUR FAT ARSE OVER ON YOUR SIDE WOMAN!

Buses....
There is obvioulsy a whole new world out there on the buses that I am just not part of; so close & yet so far. What is it about travelling by bus that makes it such an "interesting" experience for you? Can't be for the value for money, comfortable, speedy, pollution free journey & quality "me time" experience into work can it? Oh no, sorry, I must have dozed off there for a moment. What was I saying? Oh yes, "interesting" & "buses...No, too late, it's gone. Sorry.
