• The Bastard Who, While He Admittedly Walks With a Cane, Sat Next to Me in a Priority Seat on the Bus

After weeks of loathing South London and all of its godforsaken boroughs of hell, I was just starting to admire central London as we approached a lovely view of the Houses of Parliament.

Then this old sonofabitch who smelled like booze, has long hair and a long beard and long fingernails, and basically looks like a hobo, ruined my moment by parking his crusty ass right next to me. I mean, maybe he’s just a hip old guy who thinks it’s cool to look like that and plays a lot of classical guitar. But nonetheless, why do people do this? Why do people get all cozy up on you when there are empty seats everywhere? I even had to move my bag, which I was using to occupy the empty seat next to mine to illustrate to the bus that I do not like strangers cozying up to me in my space.

Yes, he walks with a cane. Yes, I was sitting in a priority seat for disabled people. Yes, I am not disabled.

But you know what? Let me get one thing straight here: There was an empty priority seat in front of me, closer to the door, and another two empty priority seats behind me. I don’t care if he walks with a stupid cane. If he really “needs” a priority seat, there were three other options besides the one in my space.

I wouldn’t have even minded it if he got all territorial and told me to get up so he could sit down because I am selfish and lazy and not disabled. If he had given me a chance, I would have gotten up and sat in some other seat outside of the priority area altogether, and then everybody would win.

He completely ruined my bus ride.

    Maybe he’s just an old bastard tired of youths sitting in the disabled/old people section and this is how he retaliates. By making you uncomfortable.
