To wonder just how greasy your hair has to be

To leave these hideously disgusting smeary patches of horrid on the bus windows.

I don't usually travel by bus but I've visited a couple of parts of london for the first time recently. I love nosing looking at the lovely houses and inside of you haven't shut your curtains but seriously. The grease!! It's awful. Who does this? Why?

You're assuming it's hair rather than hands?

How do you know it's hair?

Mrsmorton Sun 26-Oct-14 13:34:55

It has like a hair sort of texture to it. The nose/ hands ones look different.

Think textured wallpaper, only hairy glass grease.

Probably hair gel then.

WorraLiberty Sun 26-Oct-14 13:36:54

I travel everywhere by bus and I've never considered it to be hair marks

Most likely people wiping the windows with their hands and then it steaming up/clearing again.

It probably explains the textured look.

Maybe it's saliva?

Hmm as an oral health professional, my considered opinion is that it's not saliva.

No steamed up windows yet, it's balmy here and has been since early September!!

Must be hair gel. It's still pretty rank though. Sometimes it's got bits in it.

I think it's from all those guys with gelled hair.

yes to hair gel or just face grease, I am aghast at how horrid my phone looks after I have it up against my make upped face, looks all greased up and nasty. perhaps that's just me though blush

Not just you StepAway I hate the foundation smears after a phone call envy

I remember going with my Uncle to check out his rental house after his tenant moved out.

He gestured in horror to a grey tweed armchair with a leather headrest. Except when I looked closer I realised it wasn't meant to be leathery - it was a glossy black shellac of grease from her hair!

I've seen this on train and bus windows, and always ass,ed its from greasy hair... It's clearly from hair, not from noses or hands. But it could be gel. Either way, it's gross and really gets in the way of looking through people's windows.

StarlingMurmuration Sun 26-Oct-14 14:59:29

Ass,ed its = assumed it's

domikate phew though I might just be an exceptional minger smile

Antimacassars are the answer. Out GPs knew and we forgot. <shakes head sadly> Also I would quite like to start using the word again.

MrsTerrorPratchett Sun 26-Oct-14 15:19:43

Our GPs!

Dh is bald. He leaves weird circular head marks on our glossy kitchen cupboards where he rests his head on the doors.

It's probably from styling wax.

DreamsOfFreddieInTheNight Sun 26-Oct-14 17:51:08

Why does he rest his head on your cupboard doors...?

<imagining despairing husband in kitchen>

ItsAllGoingToBeFine Sun 26-Oct-14 17:54:36

Another one doubting it is hair grease - more likely to be some sort of non-setting hair product. Still gives me the boak.

BertieBotts Sun 26-Oct-14 17:56:46

I think it's hair spray, gel or similar. Not grease.

People are just dirty. You only have work a day in A&E to realise that.
