There is nowt of you. You make me look like He-Man
some people are massive, and when I step one foot off the tram to let other people off, fat cunts barge past and nick my space.
We need to have a cull.
Swings and roundabouts.
but no way do I look like a playground.
people being weighed with their luggage when flying
so I can take another person on without having to pay for an extra fucking ticket...
the question is, when you buy a train or a bus ticket, do you buy the right to travel on the journey, or do you buy a seat on the journey? *strokes chin*
Most buses have a set standing allocation
If everyone has a 'sort of' responsibility to maintain a decent level of personal hygiene for the sake of those around them, shouldn't they also not press me up against a tram door with their big fat lardy arse?
I'm going to stop replying to EVERYONE in this thread now. Bye.
that doesn't override the fact that a fat person takes up more space, and therefore fewer people who have paid for the right to travel have the opportunity to exercise that right.
Exercise is of course what the fat people need.
6"4 I say ha.ha.ha. Not that i'm fat, but I'm certainly heavy.
We tall people get penalised with plane seating, bus seating, low tube carriage heights. You also reckon we should pay more because we dare have to genetics which provide us with ample height?
I'm only 6 foot and still my legs can't fit in front of any public seat
you get a seat that fits, I get to er..weigh more.
though alot of fat people probably could improve their waistline.
above which you pay more.
Maybe if you struggle to get through the automatic barriers that could act as a guide as to your to fat or not.
making the barriers narrower so they could make more money. So we would need an accepted and government approved barrier width that was enforced nationwide.
I'm leaving this thread now.
They're called CHILDREN.
How fat do you think people can get? The vast majority can at least cram their corpulent hides into one seat, and the rest probably represent one person out of several thousands fucked out of using one specific tube or bus due to their body mass.
In short: mathematically, fat people don't do anything to stop you using a given form of transport simply by taking up space.
What they are likely to do, is slow down the speed of travel through a station because they stand on escalators when everyone else needs to keep moving and are just very slow. But then, you could say the same about old people, people with children, tourists and people with obnoxiously large baggage - or as I collectively term them: Scum.
If you struggle to get your case out of the house, then you have too much stuff.
on the bus the other night. sat in the front seat after the standing area, and there was a tiny lady sitting next to her, crammed in by the window.
the fat lady asked her [in rather rude terms] to move up.
my sympathy was with the tiny lady until she revealed herself to be a mentalist, shouting at the woman 'IT'S NOT MY FAULT IF YOU'RE FUCKING FAT', and then abusing the bus driver for not telling people about the diversion [when he had told everyone about 2 minutes earlier].
(the small bitchy one)
she actually did display borderline psychotic tendencies.
she got to the bus stop about 5 mins after i did [i was the only one waiting there for a few mins], and when the bus arrived, she tried quite aggressively to barge on first, as though she'd been there earlier. i'm taller so she failed. then as we moved down the bus she started shoving my bag and kicking my ankles.
less people to kill that way
you’d be surprised how high up on the list of possible eventualities it actually is.
on fags, booze, and pertol then why not on Mars Bars?
I'd go for a higher income tax bracket or something a bit more transparent
a different PAYE code or something?
I just like to complain on the internet.
fat person does shopping at supermarket, swipes ID card at the usual debit/nectar card place in the transaction.
later, fat person goes to renew monthly travel card/oyster card. swipes ID card, system tells person at tube station whether fat person is actually trying to lose weight based on their weekly shop. fat person is either disgraced and given a 'bendy bus only' pass (bus features a huge seat in the concertina section) or awarded with regular travel.
