Where would you rather they sit?
Sounds like me when sitting on abus with friends (of course, when I'm by myself I sit in a sensible seat above the axle or right up front :wink: )

I mean a person takes up the whole back seat on a busy route like the 950 Data.

Back in 2014, I was on a bus trip from the Perth Convention Centre all the way to school. That bus was a high floored bus. I sat at the back section of the bus on my own and realised that I have been pressured from a group of mates. They wanted me to put my hand out of the window but I told them not to do this kind of stupid things. It annoys the f*** and having to tell these blokes off. I wanted them to stop doing this kind of behaviour but they continue to pressure me a lot.

Some baboon today wanting to go to Lobethal got on the T840 instead of the 864F they needed to transfer to the 834. Meant the 864F had to wait in Crafers for the T840 for around 10mins, when it was already running 10mins late. The 834 in question was at least 21mins late to Lobethal, and would have had to wait for the (now very) late 864F in Verdun. Plus the detour on route 834 sending it through Charleston, around 10mins out of it's way.

There was this weirdo on a 174 I went on today. As I boarded, he was asking for $5 but in a strange way. He kept repeating $5! $5! to every passenger that boarded, even little kids with their parents.

Was this guy drug affected or something?

If 20 people give him $5 then he's just scored enough to buy a point of cold.

This weird elderly man (with a heavy ethnic accent- you know, one of the Mediterranean region countries) brings supermarket trolley onto an STA Bustech bus at Maroubra Jcn, doing a 397 into town.
Driver tries telling him this is not on. Man ignores him at first and stands there fiddling with his shopping bags. After some persuasion, the man starts slowly transferring the bags into the luggage pen before taking the trolley back outside, holding up the service for nearly five minutes in total before the bus departs.
A few days later this same man is just outside Maroubra Coles helping himself to donated tin food left in a charity container, with staff yelling at him that he is not to take the food. He eventually relents and I overhear one staff member mentioning how this bloke is always acting weird. Funny thing is he looks quite unassuming in appearance.

Saw a teenage woman alight with jeans on that were ripped as high as her thighs! Looked like they were imposing as underwear! I've seen plenty of 'examples' of this clothing, but this is taking things to the extreme!
