(I have a very developed smell sense) the thing is I am STILL smelling that, even though it's been an hour since I got off the bus, WTF!!!? Has this ever happened to you? Why am I still smelling that?!

    paz_daddy saidicon_sad.gif new jersey transit. i have stories for days. so glad that i don't have to ride that shit for the moment but everytime i do, i dread that shit EXCEPT if i'm on the 107 bus to new york. the 25 bus is just fucking depressing.

    Well I usually drive my car but I had to use the bus today, It's usually a nice ride but this guy..UGHH!!!! It looked like the guy was 90 years old and didnt know what he was doing there. I tried to escape but to no avail, I'm not sure the rest smelled him too, because no one acted strange (like trying to get away from him).

    Maybe it's you? icon_lol.gif

    In reality I've noticed that a lot of old people have a distinct smell. I smell it at the gym too and it's not really a scent I enjoy.

    Lol, this article talks about it.

    that's what's fucked up about the bus. everybody and anybody rides that motherfucker. icon_sad.gif

    and those folks were probably scared of him. dude probably shitted on himself. icon_sad.gif was the bus clean somewhat clean at least?

    The buses are really nice and clean, and the guy didnt shit himself because that would have been obvious. It wasn't a specific smell, just something NASTY that came from that guy and for some reason Im still fuckin smellin it!!

    Smelling ground coffee can act like a "palette cleanser" and neutralize whatever you've smelled.

    ^ I live in a touristic city so its obvious they will make buses look nice and shiny. Some even have a 2nd floor with no roof to enjoy a nice day ride.

    ^^^^

    That's one reason I avoid public transit. In theory I like the concept, and it's vital for many people. Reduces traffic congestion, provides transit for people without their own cars, lowers pollution, etc, etc. And for nearly 20 years I've been able to use public transportation at little or no cost, due to being disabled.

    But the riders are often revolting. It's like going under a bridge and spending time with the unwashed homeless.

    I used to ride a commuter bus from the Seattle suburbs, for only $.25 on a disability pass. Once inside the city center all buses were free for everyone. You just got on and rode. It was some liberal perversion, that promoted downtown business.

    From my downtown stop I'd take a free local bus to the VA hospital. But so did lots of other vets, many of them in rags. It was scary.

    Some of them would roam the bus aisle, ranting & yelling incoherently at everyone. The bus drivers remained oblivious to it all, never intervening. Naturally I felt sorry for my fellow vets, their minds gone. But I also had to wonder why no interventions could be done, to get them into homes or something.

    And so to this day I have a disdain for public transportation, even though I can use it for pennies here, as I did in Washington State.

    I'm not so sure that ALL old people smell bad.
    I've hugged my grandma and gramps well into their upper 80's and 90's. No real special smell there.
    Old clothes or vitalis hair products etc. may smell like old folks, but once they've bathed like you and I, they smell just like people.
    My parents are mid 70's now and they smell like regular peeps.
    Maybe that older guy who had to ride the bus was of poor economical resources and doesn't do laundry as often as you and I.

    taking the bus is a one-way magic carpet ride to a land with no dignity. I hold this truth to be self evident, David3000.

    LOL. I have to encounter any stinky people on public transit. I just get the usual trashy ghetto people that:
    - Smoke weed
    - Drink alcohol
    - Play crappy music on their smartphone speaker
    - All of the above
