Dear gentleman next to me on the bus this week,
I, too, appreciate the wonder of the express bus and how quickly it brings us to school each morning, and home each afternoon. I, too, enjoy how great it is for the environment, not to mention our pocketbooks. Just like you are, I am amazed at how much it resembles an airplane, with individual reading lights, chairs that recline, overhead seating compartments, etc., but I, too, rejoice in knowing that we can use our electronic devices at all times, rather than turning them off during takeoff and landing.
So I can appreciate the ease with which you feel comfortable on the bus.
However, what I canNOT appreciate is the ease with which you pick your nose when you are RIGHT next to me, before wiping it on the seat between us.
JUST BECAUSE I AM READING DOESN'T MEAN I CAN'T SEE YOU.
Additionally, I do not appreciate that you, just moments later, began SNORING with your face inches from my shoulder.
That is gross.
Know why it is called "public transportation"? Because you are in public.
