Seriously though, I'm not paranoid, but I keep an eye out for things that i might step in while walking, or that might have been left by someone who'd sat in a seat before me, and it results in a lot less laundry/shoe scraping. Even something like a piece of salad in a chair at a restaurant catches my eye, or chinese food, or whatever else threatens me with dirty clothing. A large amount of vomit shouldn't be hard to miss if you're even vaguely paying attention to the world around you.

@#31: My thoughts exactly. You have senses so you can pay attention to the world around you, which can benefit you in lots of ways over being oblivious to it.

#2 my thoughts exactly. Unlike water, vomit isn't usually clear and odorless. OP was paying no attention to his surroundings, and that has a price.

how did you not notice chunks before sitting? Wasn't there a stench in the air as well? I know if I smell puke I am looking to see where it is so I don't step/sit in it. Not to mention I have this horrible reaction to look at things before sitting on them simply because you never know what will be there. Y simply DI

I've never understood why people don't look at the seat before sitting down when they're in public places.

They said (with my explanation between brackets): #9: Ah, the joy of a ride with the NMBS.... (NMBS is the Belgian railways company) # 13 (OP): Well, I was just leaving Hasselt, so I assume it was someone who drank too much jenever (jenever is a kind of gin, Hasselt is a town known for its jenever) #10: Limburg, Belgium? Does that exist as well? (there's also a Limburg, the Netherlands) # 11: Er yes, it's a Belgian province. To be exact, one of the 5 Flemish provinces.
