1) The loud cell-phone talker. I do not care if your baby daddy has done you wrong, and I'm sure the rest of the bus passengers don't care either. And if I can hear you yapping above the din of my iPod, you clearly are talking far too loud.
2) Watching the bus fly by as I run to the bus stop. This happens every day. Without fail.
3) Waiting 15-20 minutes for the next bus. And watching about 5 busses go in the opposite direction during that time. It's like the busses going my way get lost in a black hole on the Columbia Pike.
4) Being a magnet for sick people. And if you cough or sneeze, at least cover your mouth. Even five-year-olds know it's bad form to blow germs all over your neighbors.
5) "Incidents" on the metro. This is a fancy way of saying "our trains have broken down again, so please add another 20 minutes to your commute" and "be prepared to pack yourself into the next train like a sardine since we're only running one train every 12 minutes during rush hour."
6) Taking an hour to commute the 4 miles into work. I think it's about time I grab my running shoes and backpack because I can run four miles in far less time than that.
