Public transportation is a whole other world, where pretty much anything goes. It doesn’t matter if you’re on a train, subway, or bus. In each situation, there are no rules.
I mean, sure, there might technically be a rule that you aren’t allowed to eat on the bus– but people totally do. Any time you step onto a bus or other form of public transportation, you are saying goodbye to everything you can expect to encounter in the regular world and opening yourself up to a brand new idea of “normal.”
Someone clipping their toenails? Seen it.
Someone eating a salad with chopsticks? Seen it.
Someone taking off their socks and switching them to the other foot while also playing the harmonica and singing “Take Me out to the Ballgame?” Haven’t seen it, yet. But I feel like someone has.
Here are tweets that perfectly capture what it’s like to take public transportation.
