I can't stand leg puns! tells us more.
Hi all! OP here! So, to start off, thanks for all the support (and sorry for firing off last time!). To the one or two of you who think I should be able to stand, first: the disabled seating is there for a reason; second: when you're standing on the bus you use your toes to help you balance a bit, and if you can't move toes on one leg it's a bit difficult. Third: My leg's basically a metal pole with a foot on the end, it's not one of the fully realistic ones, and I was wearing shorts so it was kinda obvious. Next, to those saying she may have been disabled in her own way: Unless she was severely mentally disabled, she still didn't need to shout at me, and I know her locally, she's just a bit of a bitch. Also there was only like 2 other people on the bus, and about 6 free disabled seats, she just wanted MY seat. And yes I realise I post a lot of stuff, life sucks haha. It isn't as consistent as my posting makes it appear, some of these stories happened a while ago, but how many FMLs actually happened that day? I'll try and think of another for you guys next week hahaha. And to whoever said I need my own section on FML, I won't complain hahaha. Thanks for reading the rant, see ya!

I didn’t think of that. She could’ve had a “hidden “ disability. That doesn’t give her the right to be rude and demanding, though.
You need an attitude adjustment. Instead of looking at the bus being half-empty, you should say the bus is half-full. Nevertheless, if there are open seats on the bus, why is this woman bitching at you? Is she insane?

how do you know she isnt disabled? not all disabilities can be seen, as im sure you are aware when you wear long pants. either way, if i were still able to walk with the use of a prosthetic leg on a mostly empty bus, i wouldnt be sitting in the disabled seat.
You can do as you wish, but it is handicap seating. You know what is a pretty big handicap? That's right you guessed it, it's needing an artificial leg. Now of course they may adapt well with it but it is a handicap none the less. As much as OP's attitude was off on her pervious fml they do not need to put up with that situation.
Disabled seating was primarily made for people who cannot use the regular seats. You know who cannot use regular seats, people with legs that don't bend correctly. I I'm familiar with this, since I have two fake knees (one that does not bend more than 80 degrees), a fake hip, and fused lower back discs. I cannot fit in the regular seats, so for me it's disabled seating or I stand. People with prosthetics usually have the same problems. So technically these are our seats and these other people can blow it out their asses.
So sorry, OP. I hate that. I’ve never had that happen, but plenty o people have bitched because they had to move for me. I’ve also dealt with assholes who are too damn stupid to move out of the aisle so that I can get past. They tend to try to move just slightly. I need to learn that when I run over these people with my walker, or bump into them with it, don’t apologize because THEY DESERVED IT.
