This leads me to some small complaints about the metro bus system.
- Why are the busses so crowded? As you can imagine, I have yet to figure out how to knit while standing on a moving vehicle. This means I can only actually knit on the bus when I get to sit down.
- Why are the seats so small? Apparently the average person who rides the bus in the city is not skinny (maybe if they were, they'd ride their bike instead... unless they're afraid of traffic, like me), and does not fit in the seat provided. This makes knitting awquard, as I don't want to accidentally poke anyone with my needles.
- Why are people so rude? I understand handicap people, people who talk to themselves, and grossly obese people needing two seats, but on a crowded bus, why would anyone else be so selfish as to take up two seats? I asked a man with several bags today if I could sit down, and he said he had too many bags. That is crap. I've ridden the bus with obnoxious baggage before (physical, not emotional), and know how to contain my stuff in my own seat. Really!
