Wildly Uncomfortable Public Transportation Stories

Published by Darron Toy on

so if you get a bug bite on the train it could be a little mosquito bite or a near-death experience happy writing so I take the bus to work every single day and a couple weeks ago it rained in LA which is a rare event here and I got on the bus it was pretty empty I picked a seat towards the back and a few minutes in I noticed the smell it's not a good smell and I start to look around they're only about two other people there with me and it's not coming from either of them I'm not sure where it's coming so I sit for a few seconds thinking about this and then I noticed my butt is wet so I stand up kind of in shock and try to convince myself that it's just rain water that was in rainwater it was definitely pee I was sitting in a stranger's he I'm the bus turning around is not an option at this point it's gonna take like an hour to get to work the only thing I can do is go to Target that's close to work and get pants so I went to Target and got new pants no underwear baby wipes and a bottle of whiskey just to console myself because it was 8 o'clock in the morning and this is no way to start your day it was the longest commute of my life I was on the bus going back to my dad's house with my two sisters in San Francisco my two sisters got off the bus when we made it to the stop but then I got like caught behind for some reason and this man just like enters the bus and he's like shaking and like kind of falling over he's clearly drunk and he's really really smelly like I got a bagel wife of him he's coming close to me and he's still falling over and he just goes like he just smears his hand on my face like if I was a pole or something to hold on to pulls it for like three four seconds and just walks right by unfazed completely unfazed and I was just like I got off the bus and I started screaming at my sister so I was like give me the keys to the house give me the keys to the house my sisters were cracking up they thought it was the most hilarious thing because I am a huge germaphobe I went into the bathroom and I took the rubbing alcohol and I rubbed it all over my face and then I went to grab the dish soap because hand soap is not gonna clean my face enough took the dish soap and I washed my face with it like two times if a drunk man is coming on the bus and you see coming towards your way run because he might use your face to stabilize himself I went up to San Francisco to visit one of my best friends and we were going to the Ferry Building and we decided to take the bus to get there but before we got on the bus we had a few mimosas so I was like a little tipsy on this bus ride and we were standing up holding on to like you know the little rope thing that you hold on to and I had this little purse like over my shoulder I wasn't really paying much attention then like two stops later a ton of people got off and after all this huge rush of people got off this woman who had been sitting down kind of near where we were standing was like oh excuse me ma'am I think someone might have taken your wallet out of your purse and she said it so calmly that I almost like didn't really believe her I was like what and then sure enough I like look in my purse and my wallet is not in there anymore and she's like that guy that's like just getting up like about to walk off the bus took your wallet and normally like soberly I think I would have just been like well what do I do like I guess I don't have my wallet anymore but because I was a little tipsy I had this like liquid courage I just walked right off the bus and followed this guy and I was like hey you stole my wallet give it back to me and he's like no I didn't know I didn't what are you talking about and then he just drove up to my wallet on the ground and like ran away and it was so weird but I just like picked up my wallet and all of the people on the bus had totally been watching this whole thing go down so when I got back on the bus they were all like cheering for me that I got my wallet back and then it was so weird we just kind of like went on our way and it was sort of like nothing happened so it's the summer after my junior year of college I'm using public transportation every day for the first time and I'm sitting there pretty usual I don't like to get in anyone's way so I like tucking my feet under the benches great idea and I feel something tickling my ankle and I look down and I see like a mosquito flying away I'm like oh great I got a mosquito bite for the next couple days I don't feel too well but I didn't overthink it suddenly on the second night as I'm going to bed I put my phone on my nightstand and right before I put my phone down I have lockjaw and then I start shaking violently and then next thing I know I'm projectile vomiting into the trash can on my walls everywhere and I pass out the next thing I know I wake up at my 4:00 a.m. alarm I go to work I don't overthink it because for some reason I feel good again so I go to my boss casually tell him I'm not feeling too well maybe it's cuz of this mosquito bite I got a couple days ago and he looks at me and he says Jasmine that's not a mosquito bite you need to go to Urgent Care and get that checked out and good thing because I go to Urgent Care the nurse sits me down and she goes you've been bitten by a brown recluse spider one of the most poisonous spiders in the country what and I was loaded up on antibiotics and I had a great night with my friends on FaceTime so yeah public transportation is fun or deadly

I was bit by a brown recluse in December of 2017! It was terrifying and I left it untreated and unaware that I had been bitten by such a deadly spider. Totally freaky experience and I can’t even express the misery I went through.

Polat Yalçın · May 14, 2019 at 3:53 pm

One time when I was at the subway and it was getting faster as it leaves the station, this one girl was talking to her friend on her phone. Seconds later the train made a sudden brake and the girl literally FLEW to the front and hit her forehead to the pole. It was hella bloody and I'm pretty sure she needed some stitches.

Alexis Hayashi · May 14, 2019 at 3:53 pm

Maycie has a pretty annoying voice tbh

Elijah Davidson · May 14, 2019 at 3:53 pm

Melissa Garro B · May 14, 2019 at 3:53 pm
