Now, I'm pretty sympathetic to larger folk in his situation on the bus, as those seats don't offer up much leg or body room. However, this guy wasn't very big (his knees didn't even reach the back of the seat in front of us) and I'm a fairly petite person, he certainly had comfortable sitting room on his own side of the seat. I even moved into my corner more as much as I could, and he still continued to take up more space. I just couldn't get over the fact that for most of this ride his body was pressing into mine, and since this isn't the first time I've been in this situation on the bus, I finally lost it. I turned to him, took my sunglasses off, and politely asked if he could move over because I was squished in the corner. He acknowledged me, but didn't say anything, he stopped pressing into me for a few minutes (but still took up most of the seat) and then started leaning into me again after a few stops. In which I finally got up and changed seats.
Has anyone else had similar situations? Or has been the person taking up too much space? Was I being out of line or rude? thoughts?
