Bus rage

Why oh why do passengers stand downstairs when there are plenty of seats up stairs. I was accused of being rude pushing past someone today as I got on the bus as I tried to get upstairs. There were probably 60 people downstairs where there are seats for 20 and standing room for another 10 -15 when there were only 10 people upstairs and seats for 40!

I don't know how I missed this post until now, Peewit. Gee, to me, a double-decker bus looks fun and I'd fight for an upstairs seat!

Maybe it takes too long for busy commuters to get down the stairs? Lots of short rides, no sense in going all the way up there?

It's probably short rides and laziness. There is always plenty of time to get down from upstairs if you are fit and able.

I always prefer sitting upstairs you can see more! (even on a suburban bus like the one shown)
