Fantabulous Foto Friday

Today on the bus, I sat across a woman who took her shoes off and began scratching between her toes.
Her feet stank.
A few minutes later, she began chewing each and every one of her finger nails while making slurping noises.
She then proceeded to pick dirt from between her teeth with the bitten-off nail pieces.
After that, I watched in horror as she had a good pick of her nose, wiped the discovered treasures on the back of her hand and then sucked them off a little while later.

This is one of the milder experiences I’ve had since deciding to get the bus to and from work instead of the tram to save money.

Here are some modes of transport I’d much rather be taking…
