Today, I was taking the bus to work, when a man sat down beside me. The guy was nuttier than Ron Jeremy's ballsack, and had a face like a shovel and the worst meth mouth I've ever seen. I had to sit there for ages while he frantically muttered to himself and picked at my hair. FML

even if the bus was full, get up and move away or just say something! at best start fake coughing without covering your mouth, people even the crazy ones will tend to move away. I voted both cause while it was creepy and sad, OP could have done something to make him stop.

If you take into consideration the fact that OP was probably on a crowded bus (though this isn't definite; some people get REALLY chummy on buses) then she didn't really have anywhere to go. For someone to be able to sit next to her, she'd have to be sat in the window seat, and so if someone were to sit next to her, the only way to get past the crazy meth-head would be to jump through the window, otherwise she'd end up risking him doing something worse than picking at her hair.

I would have STOOD rather than sit next to someone who made me this uncomfortable. Heck, if it's that bad, I'd consider getting off and catching the next bus. But where I live, there are fairly frequent buses. If the buses don't run well in Florida (and I grew up in Orlando, land of the hourly buses), OP may not have much of a choice.

Nice double standards. If an unattractive man finds you attractive it's creepy and you should be disgusted, if an attractive man finds you attractive you should be flattered.

30 - It's more what he does, rather than being unattractive. Plus, drug use itself is unattractive to most people. Have you seen meth mouth? It's fucking disgusting, and a turn off in itself, no matter what the person looks like. Attractive people can be creepy too, it all depends on how they act on their attraction.

45, Why does it matter where he was touching her? He's a stranger and no consent whatsoever was given for him to put his hands on her. Being female, I would expect you to sympathize with her plight (not to insinuate that men are not also harassed similarly).

The bus could've been full or maybe OP tried and the guy got crazier or maybe OP was paralyzed by fear. I would probably be pretty freaked out in that situation too.

I'm a former city transit bus driver. If someone is actually bothering you, including invasion of personal space, or causing a danger (Mental OR physical) to anyone on the bus, tell the driver. S/he is obligated to fix the problem up to and including calling the police to have the offender removed. If the driver does not rectify the situation, make a note of the bus number (Usually four digits painted on the outside), and the time of day. Contact the company and make a formal complaint.
