Is it that hard to read the fucking title? The title that says "Red Box", that machine that is everywhere that dispenses dvds, and notoriously has some dipshit that can't make up their mind.
Anon-you demonstrate clearly shitty customer attitude. Working in retail is not a hard job, except for doing stock or running stairs to get items for customers. However, what is the true soul-crushing and roughest part of the job is you, shitty customer extraordinaire. Wow! You bought TWO pairs of shoes in the last few years and you feel entitled to free merchandise? I bet if a price tag has fallen off an item, you pick it up and ask if it is free before guffawing about your wit. Seriously, buy your boots at Payless on BOGO if the $200 or whatever is making you feel like you need something for free to keep your "loyalty" in check. You are delusional if you think your purchases are keeping whatever company you are talking about afloat.
I'm an outer seat sitter for a couple reasons.
I have been boxed in plenty of times by creeps, when there are plenty of completely empty seats. I'm talking situations where there are only four people on the bus and someone sits next to me.
I like to choose who sits next to me, within reason. Obviously none of you have endured the woman on the 15 who gets on with her pants totally crusted from PISSING AND SHITTING THEM. She has wanted to sit next to me and I would rather not dry-heave/throw up in my mouth. (I haven't seen her in awhile, but she haunts my transit nightmares).
Or in the winter where people get on hacking and coughing, I would rather not sit next to you. I get that you may be on your way to the doctor, awesome for taking care of yourself. I would rather not contract whatever you just sneezed out while sitting on half my thigh.
I think it is completely valid to protect my health by not sitting next to people with shit in their pants, or in the midst of the flu. By sitting in the outer seat I have the control to quickly stand up and move or stand if those situations present themselves. I will gladly move over if asked.
As a woman in public I have to also protect myself from creeps. I have been touched "accidentally", rubbed against, and grabbed inappropriately. I don't give a fuck if someone wants to "start a conversation" with me. Just because I am in public I am not obligated to perform my gender by being nice, not taking up space, and talking with those who demand it from me. It's a fucking commute, not a community on the bus.
