Bus seats in Finland - for the unsocial people, like me.
Rule number one in Finnish public transport culture: Don’t sit next to anyone. Unless the seats are like this.
In every other cases fill the spots from window seats. Then standing up seats. If the bus gets crowded sit next to someone but sit as far as possible from the other person and turn your head to look to the completely different direction. Don’t say a word.
And if you’re the one sitting next to window pray all the gods that the other person leaves before you, because otherwise you’d have to speak to him/her. Usually it’s something like “Umm..ileavenow”. Remember, no sorries or smiles. Just say it as low and fast as possible without making any eye contact.
legit advise for people visiting finland. that “ileavenow” is “mä jään täs” in finnish. it’s okay if you don’t pronounce it perfectly right because the only reason someone would talk to strangers in public transport is to ask them to move, so they will get the hint.
BUT! usually just things like putting your phone away and rustling your bag and looking like you are about to leave will do the trick. no need for words.
….and this is how you wait for a bus in finland:
Reblogging because of that picture. So true. And familiar.
This is the most bizarre thing I’ve ever seen…what the actual fuck. It almost seems like a joke but I feel like it’s actually serious????
This is very true and something every tourist should remember
I kind of feel like buses in the US are like this, too. Also, I wonder if anybody’s deliberately broken the rules jsut to see how others react?
This is why I shouldn’t be let outside
OH I GET IT
Please be my roommate! – Atlanta, GA
I’m looking for a roommate for my super great apartment in Midtown/Old Fourth Ward. SUPER QUICK INFO: 525 a month for a gorgeous room in a great apartment in a great neighborhood with a great yard and great landlords and a big back yard IT IS AN OBJECTIVELY GREAT APARTMENT, PLEASE SIGNAL BOOST
-The bedroom I’m looking to fill is super bright, has one exposed brick wall, and has a connecting door to the bathroom.
-Rent is 525 a month plus utilities (generally 40-60 a person per month)
-I have a washer and dryer, and we get free internet, woo
-There’s a backyard! It’s beautiful and really big for the city.
-I have two cats, so you should definitely love or at least like cats. If you have one cat that’s okay, I’d rather no one bring a dog in but feel free to contact me anyway because I would be open to that if I had no other options!
-Move-in is June, this can be flexible if needed
-This is a basement apartment (but very bright, with full windows, only the laundry room and half of my room is underground), and we live under our landlords. They’re super nice and take care of all the yard stuff which is great. They have a huge horse dog who is very sweet but might be intimidating to some.
-It’s right off Ponce de Leon, but the street is very quiet considering, and parking is usually fine.
-The most convenient bus lines are the 99, 2, and the 102.
-No smoking or drugs in the house, drinking is whatever.
ME: I’m a white queer afab femme, 22, and a student at Georgia State. I’m moderately quiet and moderately clean. I tend to adapt those behaviors to whoever I’m living with at the time. If you’re reading this through Tumblr, you can find out more about me wrt hobbies and politics and stuff on my blog.
YOU: Preferably you are queer/queer-friendly/feminist/body+fat-positive. These things are important to me in feeling safe with someone I’m living with. Preferably you are at least semi-quiet. Again, please love or tolerate cats, my babies can be very rambunctious and I don’t want to risk bringing someone into our home that might lose their patience with them!
Please message me or email me at email@example.com.

people who think steve rogers is a boring character probably didn’t watch the same movies
Why doesn’t this have a million notes?!
i love how the “did you drug them” has a little pit stop at “you’re evil”
As well it should.
I’ve reblogged this before but Imma do it again because a)it’s awesome and b) I have a specific voice when I say “Do not do the sex”.
This needs to be on a billboard and posters all around the world. Maybe even on menus are restaurants
Needs to be in bars
do not do the sex
