If you commute by public transport daily, you are already aware of all the weird things that happen on trains and buses. While most of the people sit idle and mind their own business, some people grab the onlookers' attention for right or wrong reasons. Public transport is messy. You have good guys, bad guys, homeless people, drug addicts, alcoholics and all kinds of people traveling with you. You never know who sits next to you. You never know what happens in the next minute. Read fifteen crazy public transport mess-up stories as shared by Redditors.
1.One of Those Weird Things that Happen on Public Transport
I once saw an argument escalate until one guy stabbed the other with the smallest blade on the smallest Swiss army knife I've ever seen. Best part was the guy that got stabbed telling everyone not to worry because he deserved it and they were settling an argument. They got off the bus together and walked off in the same direction so who knows.
2.This Crackhead on a Public Bus
A few years ago, on a bus in Edinburgh heading home through a slightly dodgy area. There's only a couple of people on the upstairs deck - myself, a teenage boy with headphones on, and an old lady minding her own business. A guy gets on, maybe 30ish, total chav wearing a tracksuit etc, wanders to the back of the upstairs deck. I start to smell something weird - nothing I could identify, just weird and kind of nice in a chemically way. I turn around and so does the old lady. Chav guy is lighting his crack pipe, makes eye contact with old lady first and says, very politely "Oh I'm sorry hen, It's just ma crack. Hope ye dinnae mind." Proceeds to smoke his crack for rest of journey.
3.This Lady with Bad Temper
One time on a bus, this woman who was about 8 months pregnant and had a four year old child with her didn't get up to give her seat to an old lady. The old lady did not want the seat, she saw the pregnant lady would have had a hard time standing, and with the kid too, it would have been a mess.
But some crazy woman didn't like it, and kept yelling "PUT THAT KID ON YOUR LAP" The woman had no lap, she was 8 months pregnant, and the old lady and the pregnant woman ignored her.
Crazy lady was mad, so she lunged over, grabbed the pregnant woman by the head and smashed her into the window, also smashing the four year old, who was in the inside seat.
Blood everywhere. Everyone bugged out. Wailing from the child and pregnant woman. Pregnant woman had nail marks bleeding on her forehead, her nose was bleeding.
The crazy lady just bounced off the bus at the next stop, but there were about a million plainclothes cops around, they brought her back and the whole bus was like YEAH, HER.
