Yet another blog post on my bus journey home. This is becoming a habit.
I was on a bus and witnessed the strangest thing. A guy comes on the bus, wear beige & brown from head to toe. He doesn’t have any bags and takes a seat at the front of the bus. He proceeds for about 3 stops. He gets off but I didn’t notice until I looked at the floor and saw one of his shoes.
How do you forget your shoe?
As I have small feet, my shoe does slip off my foot every now and again but it is something you notice!
What made it more strange waa the guy near him, wearing two shoes, stared at me for most of my journwy. As I got up to get off & catch my next bus, I dropped my lipstick. The guy staring at me picks it up and calls me back. He gives it to me & I get off wondering why he didn’t tell the guy that he left his shoe.
Then again, what would you say? ‘Excuse me you dropped your, urm… shoe’?! hahaha
Possibly the weirdest things I have seen left behind!
What’s the weirdest thing you guys have seen?
I hate writing negative posts but every now & again it is neccessary.
About 12:30am on Saturday morning/ Friday night, a guy touched my leg on public transport. When I say touch I mean rubbed my leg lightly. This is the 3rd time it has happened to me this month. It has also previously happened.
Why? Why do these men do this?
I know it is a small amount of guys but, what goes on in their tiny brains which makes them think it is an okay thing to do?
When I noticed this guy rubbing my leg lightly with his finger I told him not to touch me and his response was ‘Why, you don’t like it?’!!!! I was outraged and disgusted by this. Am I supposed to enjoy a strange man touching my leg?
If this has happened to me 3 times in September, how many other girls have men done this to? And it has been 3 different guys. I am disgusted by this and really think Transport for London need to do something about this form of sexual abuse. And yes, I think it is sexual abuse and an invasion of privacy and personal space.
I have always shouted at the men who have done this to me & I will shout about it and shame them so that other people will see thier faces & stay clear of them. He is lucky I didn’t hit him.
All I can say is I hope this doesn’t happen often & please be safe. This has happened to me at different times in the day so don’t think it just happens at night. I have also spoken to bus drivers about it when the offender isn’t smart enough to get off, but all they do is shrug.
If someone sits next to you and puts their hand close to your leg, be alert & if you are certain they touched you, don’t let them get away with it.
I hope TFL acknowledges my complaint about lack of security and neglect from bus drivers.

On Tuesday I finally had a day off work, but my sister woke me up at 8am and asked for my help to finish off some work. She needed the work for that evening as it was her exibition for her degree (Product Design). So I went along with her to her university even though I was super tired.
I was pissed off at the fact I had to go and do something for her on the only day I had off, luckily she told me she didn’t need help any more at about 12pm. So I started to go home.
As my sister went to a university in the middle of a huge park!! I had to jump on the mini bus that goes from the university to the train station. As the bus was driving through the park, I noticed a tree that had been cut down.
Everyone knows that, when a tree has been cut down it doesn’t grow any leaves or nothing, it is dead once it has been detached from it’s root. But this tree that was disconnected from its roots completely was laying on the ground, with fresh leaves on it! And you could tell that it wasn’t cut down recently because the stump was covered in moss and fungous.
I felt something strange when I saw this tree. It was like it showed me that the world is still beautiful even though us humans are damaging it with or without realising. It was asif the tree was told it couldn’t live anymore but it fought against what it was told and carried on growing.Okay so maybe it was still connected to its roots but it didn’t look like it was and that’s what made me think it was so amazing!
Anyway I was happy for the rest of the day after seeing the tree. I had a positive out look on the rest of the day. =]
Just thought I would share it with you guys as it touched me for some strange reason!!
Unfortunatly I couldn’t take a picture of the tree as I was on a moving bus and was too amazed by what I saw to stop and think of taking a picture!
Don’t give up hope as there is always a way of getting around things and doing what you want to do.
