Fuck you 4th Seaters. Working hard to be the poster child of the “Keep Portland Passive Aggressive” campaign. These are the shitbirds that take the second seat from the window in the 5-seat back row of the bus. Due to bus etiquette, the back row comfortably sits three when accounting for the required empty seat between passengers. The 4th Seater has basically nullified that and, for all intents and purposes, taken up 3 seats for themselves. There’s no other reason to rock this particular location: it’s less comfortable, and it’s in limbo between a window seat and the King Seat. Next time you see someone 4th Seating, take a closer look and there will be no mistaking that the person is douchey.
