Yesterday on a very quiet bus to work a girl was talking to her mom on her cell. The topic of conversation? How her dad has been cheating on her mom for three years, resulting in a very awkward bus ride for the rest of us. I asked you for your TMI bus stories, and you delivered with some crazy public-transit tales! Read them below, and if you have one to add feel free to share it in comments!
- "The funniest is when people pay their bills and loudly announce their CC# on a bus full of people! Really?! I guess they are confident and trusting of everyone on the bus! Guess they never heard of identity theft?! The topper is when they also announce their 3 from the back of the card! Some people just don't think." — Devia
- "I heard a woman on the train telling a coworker about how she was borderline stalking her ex . . . creepy!" — Mandy
- "A girl was talking loudly with her friend about who knows what but I do remember her saying 'does her mom know I had an abortion?' . . . not in a concerned way, she was talking as if people get abortions on a regular basis, and she was fairly young too" — Sarah
- "One time a guy on my silent, packed bus started loudly reading out his credit card number, including security code. Everyone on the bus started cracking up, and one girl shouted out (jokingly, I hope) 'I'm writing this down.' I've also heard a woman discussing her AND her boyfriend's diarrhea with her doctor and a guy confront his friend about a rumor he'd cheated on his girlfriend. Trust me, when you commute on crowded buses, you often can't NOT overhear someone else's loud convo." — Mary
