    I ride the bus to work almost everyday because I care about the children of the world and I'm cheap. A year or so ago, a guy and a gal started riding together. They tended to be a bit overly affectionate (holding hands, rubbing their cheeks together, whispering to each other a little to close to each other). A couple of months ago I noticed that this guy and gal stopped riding together. Now, this morning, the dude shows up on the bus with a new gal. They are even more affectionate (I think they were actually making out for a while). My ideas to prevent this in the future come down to:
    1. Ignore the issue
    2. Politely ask them to refrain from this behavior
    3. Flick boogers at them

    For crying out loud, this is a commuter bus from the northwest suburbs of the Twin Cities, not a boat in the It's a Small World ride at Disney World where getting busy in front of the children is encouraged.

    How should I handle this situation?

    Depends, how good looking is the new gal? And how mean does the dude look?

    Do you think this guy has a bus fetish? Is that a thing?

    She seemed pretty attractive but was pretty bundled up. The dude is pasty, skinny and geeky looking. Even more so than me.

    As odd as it sounds, it sure seems that way. If he shows up in a couple months with a new girl I think we'll have a trend rather than just a small sample size.

    Hmmm.
    Do you sit in front of them, across the aisle, behind them?
    Are you asking from a fatherly perspective or a jealous outsider perspective?
    (Oh, shoot, forgot we're not supposed to ask questions of people asking questions. Never mind. And, co-authors, you're welcome to use my questions in your answers.)

    I would like to say this is why I don't take public transportation, but the truth is I hate the world's kids and I want to watch the world burn.

    You have quite a bit more hair than I expected and are about 35-40 years younger than I expected. On the other hand, the girl was (quite obviously) a vixen.

    I think the correct response would have been an invitation to join.

    Ask her what “clap them cheeks” mean...since no one here can tell me. Report your findings after.

    Cleaning out some of my moms stuff to take to goodwill. There were these blankets in a bag stuffed in a hallway closet. While carrying one I noticed a couple large yellow envelopes tucked in one. I opened the envelopes and found the U bill from my second semester and a scholarship application with a reference.

    1) Think I’m still eligible for the scholarship so I should send it in?

    2) Why was my Ubill in there?

    3) Back then I received a tuition bill and a residence bill. Why were they separate then?
