    As with my daily routine to work,

    I sat by the window on a bus and put ony my earphones and set the volume full blast. A few minutes later, a young couple (I presumed they were a couple since they were hand in hand), sat next to me which was normally not a big deal for me. Until they started talking. They...

    Like when people start making out,

    right in front of you, while you're waiting in line to get to your destination. And you can't move/don't want to because you were there first and you don't want to lose your spot. So then you just have to stand there in complete silence (because you don't want to be that "rude...

    Ever post something and someone thinks its

    about them but it's not. Then they ask is it about them or say awe thank you, and u don't want to hurt them or make things awkward. So u just go ahead and let them think that or just be like ummm yeah suuurrrree. Even tho your really thinking something else.
