AIBU about the man on the bus?
588

HelenaWay · 12/05/2017 23:40

He said I don't think you should sit there. I said said excuse me what are you on about? He said the bags are massive and take up the fly space.

Well that was it. I was so angry, it wasn't a big amount. How dare he say that to me. I shouted at him that he had really offended me and it backed off and sat in the flight seat.

Now I'm thinking about it I don't know AIBU?

I know it's Easter but someone is taking the piss with all these thread resurrections.

That was a proper LOL!

Why resurrect a thread started in 2017?

This is funny as - I'm hoping by the time I've read the whole thread that I understand what a fly space and flight seat is on a bus..

Oh no, I have just realised that this is a zombie thread, and therefore the poor fly has probably been dead for nearing 5 years 😭
Unless of course he is Jeff Goldblum, then he might have decided a week on Tuesday coming, to pop back to 2017 for a ride on a bus???

Oh god I have just read some of the comments and for the first time in a long time I have actually laughed out loud, thanks for the laughs everyone. I have realised it’s a zombie thread but just wanted to stay thanks for making me LOL literally.

Why do you have to shout at a man on a bus,, its not very lady like. do you always get offended when someone mentions you bags..

@Hawkins001 Why the hell did you resurrect this ancient thread again to add a single word that had already been discussed at length?

I've never heard of either a fly space or a flight seat, and I have used buses all my life!

My interpretation:

Fly space - the space where flies might collect in between the window and the seat up against the window. Usually a narrow metal strip or small gap there so I am guessing it means he crushed himself up against the window in the space normally kept for dead flies.

Flight seat. One of the extra seats that you have to fold down to use - usually up near the front of the bus.

It is very unlikely that the OP will come back to answer you seeing as this thread is from 2017

@HelenaWay

these aren't common terms, no one knows where you mean!

Well actually they are common terms. The fly space is clearly the space between the Window and passenger. Everyone who rides a bus knows that.

No we don't! What country are you in? Are you telling us that your shopping was on the seat and you refused to move it and let someone sit down?

@MrsJamesMathews

My earlier comment still stands what the merry fuck are you on about?!

No one knows what a fly space is.

No one knows what a flight seat is.

No one understands why you would think he was calling you fat.

We all think you WBU for shouting at him.

we all think you're on crack

Pringles are overrated. Cashew nuts covered in chocolate are the best.
