Not as bad as entering before people are finished leaving.
Seriously, if you do that, fuck you.
Stand in front of her with your butt in her face. Bonus points if you can fart.
I purposely go to those seats and point blank ask them to move their shit. It's one of the few times in life you can legitimately get into a verbal fight and be justified without having to back down... Unless they are a crazy or dangerous looking individual.
You could just say something. Don't let dumb bitches with huge purses get their way. OR if I were you, I'd just sit on her stuff and tell her off, but I am cranky.
I recognize those seats, must be in the Toronto subway!
I usually just ask if they mind if I sit down. I've never had anyone say no.
Tell her to move her shit or you'll sit on it.
No, seriously. You can always try asking politely first, but I've given up on that after I've been called all sorts of nasty names for politely requesting that someone hold their bag on their lap like a sane and considerate person so that other peoplecan actually use the seats.
Sit on their lap. It's the only solution.
Just ask her to let you sit down, you passive little bitch.
NYC you'd get a ticket for doing this non-rush hour. You'd probably get your feet shoved to the floor during rush hour.
You need to man the fuck up and ask her to move since its so fucking selfish to be sitting there while people have to stand.
TALK, TALK, TALK YOU PEOPLE, TALK!!!!
These submissions drive me BERSERK. Walk up to her and TALK TO HER, maybe there were 50 other seats available, maybe her feet were down and no one took the seat so she put her feet up, maybe she was asleep, maybe there were a million other reasons. If you were less of a passive-aggressive idiot due to your fear of interacting with your fellow human beings, maybe then you'd have less things to hate.
I mean I know people who post on the internet all day are probably not social butterflies, but surely you can garner enough courage to say "excuse me, may I sit here?".
I understand wanting more space for yourself, or wanting to put your feet up, but if are clearly blocking a seat when there aren't any others... Stop being so selfish. Who wants to sit next to another person, that you don't know? WELL THEY REALLY DON'T WANT TO EITHER. THEY JUST WANT A PLACE TO SIT.
If I'm on a bus with plenty of empty seats, I'll put my backpack on the seat next to me (I've had times when creepers picked the seat next to mine when there were plenty of other empty double seats), but I'm not above letting someone else sit down if the rest of the bus is crowded. If I wanted to travel by myself, I'd drive my fucking car.
is this in new york? how was this allowed to continue long enough for a photo to be taken? i was under the impression you yanks didn't tolerate this kind of crap, and are a lot more forthright with dealing with it. she doesn't look crazy or anything, so why wasn't her shit knocked to the floor with an angry glare?
this shit wouldn't fly in england, and we'll put up with all manner of asshattery to avoid confrontation. WERE YOU RAISED IN A BARN? GET YOUR FEET OFF THE FUCKING SEATS, OR GET THE FUCK OFF THE TUBE IF YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO BEHAVE. try that for next time.
I've sort of accepted our generation as being characterize by egocentrism. This shit doesn't surprise me anymore.
Why don't you walk up to them, look them in the eye, and say 'excuse me, I'd like to sit there'?
As someone who's on both sides of this equation on some day or another, yes I'll put my backpack there, and I know 8/10 people won't ask me to move it for them. When they do, I happily oblige.
What a bitch!
One of my biggest pet peeves on the TTC. Not to mention those who put their soaking wet umbrellas/bags/feet on the seats when it's raining/snowing.
Classic TTC users...
I walk up and stand DIRECTLY in front of them. like, between them the seat they're on, and the one in front of them. If they bitch, I tell them to gtfo of my way then.
Stop being lazy and just stand up.
I've been in this situation.
I used to work at a lot of concerts and shows in the o2 Arena (formerly the Point Theater) In Dublin. Started at midnight to set up a show, got out at 8am. It was a really busy night and i think i got to sit down at one point for about 5 seconds. I took my long walk down to the Luas station (Irish tram service) and got there just as the doors were closing. This thing is jam packed and i see some bitch with her feet up on the seats, with people just standing there, looking at her. So me, tired and annoyed, just walked up, pushed her legs off the seat and sat down. Just as she was about to say something, i just glared at her and said "Don't. Just don't."
Fuck these people.
Bitch must be from Toronto.
Silence is consent.
especially a long 12 hour shift and you want to sit down, and the only seat available is being occupied by this cows feet!
I can't be the only one who has resentment for overweight people for the same reason.
Sit on their feet or bag. I've done it. Their first reaction is to cry in outrage and jerk themselves away; then you have the seat.
If someone has their bag on the seat, I walk calm, casually place it on the floor, and sit down. If they say anything, I ignore them.
Ask them to move. It is that simple. Or you can passively aggressively complain on the internet.
Just tell her to stop such a selfish bitch and fucking move.
and this is why we can't have nice things.
Id just sit on her bag
Don't be so beta
Or ask her to move.
Yes! It's the same on the bus. 2 seats and that ass chose to sit on the seat that is not closest to the window. So that ass blocks one seat. Why do people do that? People say "Just tell them to hop in." I shouldn't do that, it's common sense to leave seats for others when the bus is packed!
20 something girl in white sweatpants, ugg boots and an over sized purse listening to an ipod. seems legit to me
Who gives a shit if she is wearing boots during rush hour.
quit being a beta fag and tell her to put her feet down
she probably doesn't want to sit with some fuck
Maybe she doesn't want to sit next to a creepy stranger?
I agree, I hate it when people take photos of me on the train without my permission. How did you get it back?
Nah bitch you probably smell like unwashed vagina or else I would have let you sit next to me.
Do you know how to use your mouth?
And then you say "Excuse me, may I have that seat?"
Only not in the form of a question, and then then sit down slowly so she gets the idea.
I'm just spit-balling here, but you could always try asking her to move her feet so you can sit down...
I ride the bus to and from work. Some people go out of their way to do this, and act like you're the dick when you ask if you can sit where their bag is sitting. As if it even has a butt.
You could always ask/tell her to move her purse so you could sit.
Of course that's not as passive-aggressive as posting to the Internet about it.
Did you ask if you could sit down?
I was that guy once but for a good reason. At the terminal a woman, who was a bit touched was spitting onto various empty seats, I sat down and placed my lunch on the seat which had a loogie on it, and as it got crowed people asked to sit and I explained what happened. Then in an act of glorious justice an obnoxious woman on her phone picked up my lunch bag and sat down. I said nothing.
you could just ask her to move her legs
I would physically move her legs then sit there
Tell her, not us.
I fucking hate you people with your passive-agressive behaviour even worse than people who do that.
Ohh I see something that annoys me greatly, better put it on the internet rather than take direct action!
I would fuck that girl's shit up. Seriously. Just knock her bag onto the floor, stare directly into her eyes for five seconds, and then go back to standing around like nothing happened.
Don't be so passive aggressive, just ask them if you can sit there, they'll almost certainly move their things and say yes. There's no use getting into a huge huff about it. In fact, it may not even always be intentional. Sometimes you can get absorbed listening to music or reading a book and not notice that the bus or train has filled up.
I would grab that bag, throw it to the end of the car, and tell her to fetch it before some asshole steals all her shit.
I know we tell them to move as we start the sitting motion.
This happens a lot in Japan.. I have gotten to the point of just saying "Move" as I sit down.. Sure I get evil stares, but what they don't know is that I don't give a fuck..
dirty shoes on the seat are great too
In the UK if you just stood as if to sit down on the space, you would be compelled by train etiquette to move your shit. If this in indeed rush hour that person would not be doing that in my experience of UK train commuting.
I've never seen a train with less than 2 doors (on one side). Why did nobody ever think of having an entrance and exit door?
Well just say something. I see so many people who are afraid of just going near seats, because somebody already is sitting next to the aisle.
Ask her to move. If she says no call her a fucking bitch. Either way you get to sit down or justifiably call her a fucking bitch. Win-win.
If you do this ever, fuck you. What kind of asshole puts their dirty soles on a seat other people sit on?
But not enough to do anything?
I don't take this crap from people on my commute.. i just stand there say "excuse me" in the sternest tone possible, and stare at them until they move.
haters gonna hate
I honestly thought you were trying to point out that she was masturbating.
The brilliant part is no one will ask her to move, cause no one wants to sit on the boot seat. Clever girl.
what gets me is not one person probably politely asked to sit.
conversations are terrifying!
I hate that as well, but it looks like (similar to trains in my area) that in the seat closer to the window looks like it has no leg room whatsoever.. Not sure if I'm just looking at it wrong, but I get where your coming from and hate when people are so inconsiderate!
I also hate when they put seat facing towards each other but you have to have your legs in between the other persons because your knee is basically touching the other seat! And I'm only 5'7
What's the issue, just ask her to get her goddamn feet of the seat and sit down
I love it when people do that. If the subway is full of wimpy, passive-agressive people who would rather take a picture and post it to the internet than just tell the person to move their shit, I can get a free seat on a crowded subway.
Tell them to move their fucking ass and free the additional seat. If they don't, repeat it louder. Public embarrassement is a strong tool.
Just ask her to move.
"Excuse me, I'd like to sit down."
And then sit down.
'the fuck is wrong with you people?
Hmm, should I say something? Nope, I'll take a sneaky picture and yell about them on Reddit, that'll do it.
My advice is to engage them in conversation, by asking them what they're listening to, and then tell them my favourite song is the Ludacris tune "Move Bitch (Get out the way)"...
It works for both sexes.
You know that thing under your nose? You can use it to talk to other people, but that's not your issue is it? You had a seat and found an opportunity to take picture and judge the fuck out of someone. Maybe she shit her pants wand was protecting others from her shit smell. Either way, to all you "I'm a better citizen/person than you" people out there; shut the fuck up. Pick up the trash in the parking lot that someone left and shut the fuck up about it. Be nice to the person working at the drive-thru and shut the fuck up about it. Save a seat on the subway and feel good about yourself instead of trashing those that didn't. If you walk around hating those that have wronged you and/or society and then have to brag about it, then you are probably a hateful person. I bet that if you approached her with a smile on your face and asked politely if you have have that seat, she would have given it to you, but that's not what you wanted is it?
That's why you got a mouth. Use it to tell the bitch to GTFO
Yeah, this would last about 5 seconds on a crowded NYC train. I've seen fights break out over lesser offenses.
well..this is just a shot in the dark now, but im sure if you actually open your mouth and say something along the lines of "excuse me miss but id like to have that seat" im sure she'd move. if she doesnt you could always threaten to jerk off on her if she doesnt move, works like a charm for me
Try doing something about your problem, like telling her to move her bag and feet so you can sit down.
i sit on their legs.
Tell her to move that shit
Either tell them to move or just sit at that little space in front of her legs. O yea, and "accidently" violently sneeze in her face. She'll move quick.
If you're too passive to ask for a seat, I hate you.
You could just, you know, ask them to move.
Rush hour? Bitch please, there's empty space.Try the London Underground in rush hour.
What really sucks is when it's a rainy day and their boots/shoes are coved in mud. You just want to say, "You DO realize that someone eventually is going to sit there, right?"
Did you try asking her to move? And instead of being a social dickbag and being rude about it, you could just ask politely.
If there's a no, sit somewhere else... no reason to look like a dick.
$180 fine here in Australia for putting your feet on public transport seats
I personally try and find a double space all to myself if possible as my fitting my legs in the room given by British bus's is a fairly hard task
I do this on the bus to show there is no room beside me, but I will let someone sit next to me if they look like they want to. I usually have three bags and a laptop. I need the room.
This past Friday a man sat right next to me, I ended up at the most uncomfortable angle, he did too. There were 12 other free seats. He was being a douche.
Not everyone who sits like that is selfish, some people are warning others that there is no room as they have a lot of stuff.
Am I the only one who is "alpha" enough to dare to ask her if you can sit there?
Pee on her.
Ask if you can sit there. It's a win win
