19 Wild Things Seen at the Bus Stop

‘I saw a guy drinking milk out of a Ziploc bag’
19 Wild Things Seen at the Bus Stop

If you’ve ridden public transportation for long enough, you start to become inured to certain perculiar behaviors. That said, even the most seasoned bus passengers can get thrown off their game by a particularly unnerving event. For instance, one bus rider saw a grown man pull a fish out of a bag and slap a woman with it, noting, “Honestly I was scared for my life.” Of course they were. Anyone would be. To make matters more confusing, the fish-slapping incident happened in Detroit, and while the location isn’t necessarily relevant, it feels at least noteworthy. 

In that vein, Redditors have described the most bizarre sights they’ve seen as they’ve waited for the bus, and boy are these some entertaining commutes.

 . 6y One street guy punch out another street guy on a light rail platform. Victim drops like a sack of potatoes and ends up wedged against the train, which is about to leave. Afraid he'd be sucked under or something, I grabbed his arm and pulled him away from the train. The guy who hit him managed to get on board and ride to the next stop before the cops got there. Never a dull moment (except when you're waiting for the bus) on public transit. ... 2.2k

kimmyjay 11y This was one of the weirdest things I've ever seen. Waiting at the bus stop, and on the far side of the road, 2 teenage kids were walking. One of them steps straight out into the road without looking, and gets smashed by a transit van. It literally knocked the kid about 30 yards down the road. Waiting at the bus stop with me was an Asian gentleman in a suit, with a briefcase. I used to see him at the bus stop every morning at the same time, but our acquaintance had never gone beyond a simple

AudibleNod 6y A guy in a wheelchair gets on a bus. But doesn't immediately pay. He's at the front while the the driver goes to the next stop looking for money. At the next stop he's now blocking the front door, so the bus driver tells him to pay or get out. After the paying passengers come in from the back door the driver yells at the wheelchair guy to pay or leave. Then the wheelchair guy starts screaming about being a vet. The driver then tilts the bus (something he can do to aid wheelchairs) so the wheelchair guy
