44 Public Transport Things


I’m Just Average Teen Me. As I promised a few weeks ago, in my ‘That Was In My Head‘ post, today is my 44 Public Transport Things. Before we start, it’ll be useful to know that I use buses to get to and from school, every school day. 😦

I kind of have a love-hate relationship with public transport, so let’s go through it!

  1. It’d be real nice if the bus could turn up?
  3. *tries to telepathically summon a bus*
  4. The stress of having to scan a bus ticket and praying that it’ll work
  5. Being so awkward you don’t know where to stand when there’s no seat, so you end up right in the way of everyone
  6. Or when the bus is insanely busy and you end up pushed up against 5 different people at once
  7. Just pray they don’t fall on you
  8. Chances are, you’ll get fallen on a couple times in your life, so be glad it’s a cute guy when it is 😉
  10. *stares*
  11. Overhearing the most bizarre conversations, accidentally
  12. If my guitar falls, it’s not my fault.
  13. Messaging your friends begging them to save you
  14. “The temptation to violently ram into the person next to me is insane” – a quote from myself, on a Whatsapp chat with Penny and Britt
  15. Using all the power you’ve got to not lip sync with your music; that would be so embarrassing
  16. Suddenly being caught in the most stand-still traffic you’ve ever seen, ever. 
  17. Dramatically starring out of a window when a sad song comes on
  18. Checking that person‘s stop to see if they’re getting on ❤
  19. And they’re not 😦
  20. But when they are 😀
  21. The ear-ringing din of a school bus >.<
  22. That day where you have P.E., Food Tech and a music lesson so you’re a stumbling waterfall of bags (thank goodness I don’t have food tech anymore!)
  23. Becoming Sherlock Holmes and trying to find out any details that you can about complete strangers… Just me?
  24. Getting on an almost empty bus and thanking the bus gods
  25. On cold days, your feet feel numb
  26. And on warm days, you can literally feel your skin sweating off
  27. The dreaded moment of a wasp on the bus where you just accept your death :O
  28. When a song you know the choreo for comes on and it takes so much not to dance along (WORK FROM HOOOOME)
  29. Feeling beyond awkward having to talk to someone on the phone
  30. Standing up instead of sitting next to someone you don’t know
  31. Or freaking out mentally when someone sits next to you
  32. Sympathy for people last minute cramming before exams
  33. And becoming the person last minute cramming for your exams
  34. People who use seats for their bags -.-
  35. The uncomfortableness (not a word, but I didn’t want to use awkwardness) when some people are getting a little too steamy for a bus
  36.  Refusing to run for the bus, to save a lifetime of humiliation
  37. Feeling like a God when you arrive to the bus stop at the same time as the bus
  38. Accidental eye contact
  39. When a busy bus drives straight by you 😦
  40. Sitting on the back row and feeling popular for the first time ever
  41. Seeing a teacher, on the bus and pretending they don’t exist :/
  42. When someone starts taking selfies and you’re definitely in the background…
  43. People with zero understanding of personal space… Once I had a lady actually sit on my hand while i was holding a pole
  44. But at the end of the day, they get you where you’re going… usually…

That’s all! I hope you could relate to some of those! Let me know of anything you experience on a bus, and we can have a lil chat in the comments 😀

BYE! 😀

Hi, I'm an anonymous British blogger, hiding behind the name Awkwardsaurus. I'm a fan of Sherlock, which you should probably know. Oh, and I'm the kind of person that replies with "you too" when someone says "happy birthday". Hope to see you around ;)
