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?

Thanks IroningBoardz this one was new to me. I wonder if it was an Airbus.

@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 get the bus every day and don’t know what you’re talking about.

I thought it was floor space (typo) but the airline style seat is normally on a plane or a train but not a bus? OP have you changed the mode of transport so you can't be identified?

Zombie thread - I actually started reading this and was going to comment that he shouldnt have been sitting next to you anyway and then realised the OP was posting from the BEFORE times.

Um, no OP. We didn't have a car until I was 19, I've taken buses all my life and no one has ever referred to a fly space. Pretty sure there is no such thing. Its a window sill.

And given that buses don't fly, I can't see it having a flight seat either...

BTW yabu.

I think people were mainly taking the piss out of the post rather than the poster

I agree - but in retrospect I can see that the flurry of jokes and comments (to which I also contributed) that followed the OPs posts was unkind, even though I honestly don't think they were intended to be - it was just that many very witty people began to enjoy themselves (and entertain the rest of us) and TBH I think the OP got pretty much forgotten.

Must have been very frustrating forOP. (but she was being U)

If I were a detective, I would suspect an old time MN member that's changed her name, & was having fun with you all, my instincts tell me the perpetrator is a Portsmouth resident. By the way, the flight seat is the one that flies up when you stand up. Wink

Look at her history and then the thread. I just think people could have been a bit kinder.

I think people were mainly taking the piss out of the post rather than the poster. I hope so, anyway. It was funny and did read like something you might write at midnight after a glass or two. If the OP is still reading, I hope she thinks she's inspired something quite funny and can have a laugh at herself as well. And ignore some of the posts which were directed more at her, rather than what she wrote.

Why didn't you just apologise and move your Pringles and rice from the fly space and put them on your lap. Easy! No big deal

On the bus this morning I heard someone discussing this thread with (I assume) her partner. Neither of them knew what a fly space was but concluded flight seats were the foldy ones right at the front. Was so weird hearing someone discuss a thread I had read Grin
