I should know better than to sit on the bus when it rains

It’s raining today. I hate taking the bus when it rains. Sometimes I think it would be better to walk to 2 miles to work, in the pouring rain, than ride the bus. It is not SEPTA’s fault that more people bus it when it rains, and that those passengers are rude.

It amazes me that some people think it is a good idea to place their soaking wet umbrellas on the cloth covered seats next to them. This leads to much surprise when unsuspecting travelers then sit down.

Soggy bottoms and cranky SEPTA riders do not make for a good combination.

Any suggestions for eliminating this problem? I wonder if things like umbrella stands or slots under seats would make for fewer occurances of “walking into work with a wet butt” syndrome.
