20 Ways You Know You Ride Public Transportation Too Much

If these pertain to you, you are a train hopping, bus transferring bad ass…. Remember that next time you sit in pee on the train.

1. You no longer have qualms about eating on a train or bus.

I’ve got places to be, food to eat, and little time to do it.

2. You think twice about giving up your seat to an old person.

Fiiiiine, but screw the pregnant ladies, they brought this upon themselves.

3. Your most used app is either a bus or train tracker….

…well, second only to the Shazam and Rotten Tomatoes Apps.

4. Most of your conversations end in an argument about which public transportation route would be the quickest.

“Well you could just take the Red Line to the Brown Line or you can take the Purple line to the Blue Line and take a bus.”

5. Your day is shot when you see that the escalator at your train stop is broken.

Nothing good can come out of a day that starts with stairs.

6. You have a strong opinion on the controversial ‘bus vs. train’ issue.

Trains are better….if you want to get thrown up on.

7. The highlight of your month* is when you hear your train is running ‘express’ straight to your stop.
