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?

Omg please people stop. I'm trying to breastfeed Ds and he keeps coming off because I'm laughing so hard. He's looking at me very angrily now as in mummy what's wrong with you? Or maybe he's upset too that someone sat in the fly space / seat..whatever that is. Blush

@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.

I ride a bus and I did not know that was what they were called, so everyone who rides a bus does not know! I also haven’t really got a clue what you are going on about, sorry.

I can see I contributed (twice) to this thread at the time, although I have no memory.

4 and a half years on, I am still no wiser as to what a fly/flight seat on a bus is.

The mysteries of life....

@HelenaWay

Why is everyone talking about a fly. It isn't that hard to understand surely. He came on the bus and said I was taking up too much room in the FLY space. I only had a small amount of Pringles and rice so thought he was saying I was too fat. When I shouted he went to the flight seat and then I feel bad about it all night. I honestly only had Pringles, rice and a few other essentials not like a suitcase amount.

Nope, it makes no more sense than the original.

The flight seat is clearly that seat at the front of the top deck where you can pretend you're driving/flying the bus.
Why all the confusion Wink

Sorry my dear, I do try not to swear as a general rule, but I have no fucking idea what you’re talking about.

@MrsELM21

Oh jeez, I am up in the night with a 3 year old with diarrhoea, I now have tears of laughter running down my cheeks, thanks for making a shitty situation much better 😂🐜

Better to have tears of laughter running down your face than shit running down your leg 😂😂. Hope your DC is on the mend

Was the rice basmati or wholegrain?

Wild rice is my guess 😂

Confused

I haven't the faintest idea what this is about.

Maybe your user name should be HelenaWayWithTheFairies?
