I'd been sooo bad today...
December 12, 2012 6:31am CST
This afternoon I took the public transport (as always) which already had one passenger. I gave my destination to the driver and after getting the confirmation from the driver that I could take that trip, I got in with difficulty because the young lady didn't budge or move from the place near the entrance. That was fine since she probably would get off first. Although it was difficult to go inside because you had to stoop and make small steps, you just had to do that if the other person's destination is nearer. But I was pissed off to know that I actually had to get off ahead of her which was a little difficult again when you're seated inside. That lady was being rude and ill-mannered for anyone would have moved to give the seat nearer to the entrance if the person would go down first, but she did not budge from her place and therefore gave me some difficulty. While I was inching my way out I DELIBERATELY stepped on her shoes which looked new! That served her right. I only wanted to get even and gave her a little difficulty too. There was no need to say sorry. right? So I just stepped on her shoes and got off. I know I was being bad and childish but I like the thought that I was able to do my little revenge. LOL

Haha, I understand where you're coming from, or where that stewing mood led you. It's very common here in our country and I wonder why. Probably she was only thinking how hard it is to take off from the PUJ, same thought as you were having that moment but admit it or not, it was somewhat uncalled for stepping on her shoes, maybe you could just have taken off the PUJ with grace and showed here it wasn't that big deal to you or maybe she was just waiting for you to ask her to inch further inside because there are really that kind of people who needed to be asked first.

Hahaha .. you are my partner in crime I have also several times through the same thing. So exactly with what you do, I did it on purpose, stomped on the shoes of a woman who did not not want to move slightly from her seat near the door. The only thing that I regret that time that was why my shoes not dirty so they would leave a mark on her shoes. If I was sitting near the door, at least I'll make room for people who want to sit on the inside. But sometimes there are people who forced me to move to the inside although I have told that my trip is near, in return I will give them a little touch their toes

Oh you are so bad indeed! But I would have done the same. In the country where i'm staying at, the people know how to give way to passengers getting off and in of a public transport. That's why i don't mind commuting here though I'm not really used to commuting in my homeland.

Hi cutie, I know and can understand this. same happens here too. They never try to move at least they can try to give us place so that we can go inside properly with out any difficulty. I always move inside if i am the one who is going to get out last. But some people never got such common sense. they stick to the place as if some gum is sticked to their bum.Its so irritating i know. sometimes we even stamp their feet but they don't care to move a bit.

Okay don't do it again. Be good even if others are not. I also experience this kind of thing especially with this one kind of vehicle in our place, the tricycle (a two-sitter vehicle attached to a motorbike) wherein you have to enter a very small door in order to get inside.

Hope you don't mind but I think I'll take the other side of the coin here. Since it was a public transportation, and both of you had paid for your fare, I think she's also entitled not to move from her seat since she got in first regardless of whose destination is farther or nearer. I guess the exceptions are probably when the person is old, disabled or pregnant.
