    Haha, this is so funny. I feel like I share so many of the same thoughts as you whenever I am getting driven somewhere by someone else. What drives me insane about public transportation are the gross smells and people who eat on the train or bus. Yuck.

    I have a driving compute that is almost an hour. My brain has thoughts like these too! I don’t have to set next to people so luckily I can’t smell them but I can see them well when we aren’t moving! And when they cut me off.
