takes a new detour in to abomination
sit anywhere else and you'll just spend the rest of the journey sulking
the kids will throw things at you and it looks like you're going to crash into everything.
halfway back, on the right hand side
bendy bus = the single seat on its own at the front by the driver or perhaps the one facing backwards just forward of the partition bit
'has to sit backwards in case the bus crashes' guy? Something to do with the avoidance of other people overruling this preference?
great for a bit of banter, and a cheeky spliff
or the seats just behind the stairs on the top deck. Leg room 101.
upstairs. left of the bus if you're facing forwards. 2/3's of the way back. foot on heater.
someone do a "favourite place on to sit on the tube". i have many rules.
Absolutely bang on.
left hand side
no arguments here please.
because you get more leg room.
shucks is the man
but its rare
you get to listen to Bus FM in fear of your life. fantastic!
but everytime I see your name it reminds me of the man called Johnny Rockstar from my town who always wore leather trousers despite being really old and was garroted to death in a pub a few years ago. Think he may also have been stabbed with a samurai sword.
single seat behind the driver. In a gang, on the back, next to the window for impromptu hangman/noughts and crosses
regular bus = first seat above the back wheels, window, left
the ones on the new doubl;e deckers face forwards
I think they make themself sick. FRAUDS.
wusses. And those who can't read on trains/cars/buses: man up.
That's not very interesting, is it?
if it's not getting in anyone's way.
I’d sit if I was on a train journey, and those are the only times that I’d take public transport for longer than about 30 minutes anyway.
who stand up when the upstairs is completely empty aren't you? YOU DISGUST ME.
But then again, I’m the kind of person that walks back up the bus route to a quieter stop.
where the seats just begin to be raised and the back section of the bus begins. the first of those seats, on the right. good view of where's approaching, raised view for surveying fellow passengers, increased legroom.
I like to see where I'm going. Plus is adds an extra element of excitement when going round sharp corners and thinking you're definitely going to hit that car/building/pensioner.
downside: if the bus drives through a too-low tunnel/bridge, you're the first to go.
but you'll see the tunnel / bridge approching and make a dive down the stairs.
or else ill be sick
Or I want to pretend I'm driving.
The place with the most space otherwise.
Rosa Parks reprazent.
what with your CCCTV and such nowadays, but I liked it when you could sit front-right on a double decker and peer down at the driver's head (before getting shouted at by my Mum, for reasons which I found baffling at the time. Why would she not want me to look at his head?)
If bottom deck, back.
The seats tend to be set back there so there's enough leg room.
Also, always on the right side as you don't get the heater fucking you up.
AND YES I PUT MY FOOT ON THEM IF SOMEONE ISN'T THERE.
Don't sit facing the back. I never realised why before.
Also, I change where I sit pretty much everytime I get on the bus but generally don't like upstairs if whole bus is empty (irrational fear) and almost never sit at the back of the bus upstairs unless with friends.
somewhere nearish the stairs so I can push people back down then if it came to it.
