A bus story

Today when I went from the gym to Intelligentsia, I took one of the several buses that goes down state street (it's just two stops). I sat down next to an older black woman. While several other people were busy getting on the bus, she nudged me to take off my earphone. When I did, she said, "I'm glad you're skinny sitting next to me, don't want one of these fat people on here. Look at all of 'em!"

Well there are a lot of fat people on buses. When I rode one a few weeks ago, I was sitting in one of the inward facing seats with an empty seat to my left and a little metal barrier to my right. This very large woman got on the bus, and I started to fear she would sit next to me. But I thought, "No, she's too big. She wouldn't try to fit in there." I was wrong. She wedged her 300+ lb. body in between me and another person. I got squished up against the barrier, with my arm pressed tightly against my side.

That wasn't so fun. I understand your woman's sense of relief.
