Enjoy the Ride! 6 Incredible Tales of Ratchetness on Public Transportation

July 11, 2012 ‐ By Kendra Koger

If there’s one thing that unites all people, it’s that when we need to get from Point A  to Point B (and occasionally point c) we have to seek out ways of transportation.  If you have your own transportation, or live in a neighborhood that you can walk to your destination, then you are very lucky.  But if you have to take public transportation you’re just as lucky.  Not only are you saving the environment with mass carpooling, but when else can you get people from so many different walks of life and see some of the most bizarre things you will ever witness?

Personally, I’ve witnessed a conversation of old men on the Greyhound debating which of their former prisons were the best, and then begin to threaten to stab each other.  How about the guy who, when I was in college, would take advantage of crowded buses to grope the women and sing “Falsetto” in our ears… creepy.  Or the guy who was rolling a blunt on the train, and then whenever people started looking started brandishing a knife and mouthing obscenities at people.  You can’t get these types of stories while you’re driving in your safe car!

Some stories are crazy, and others you really just need to see to believe.  Therefore, I’m going to share six tales of craziness that happened on public transportation, courtesy of the posters of YouTube and one vid from Worldstarhiphop.  If I missed something, let me know.  Hope you enjoy the clips, and if you’re playing the clips at work, beware, because some people like to let the expletives fly!!

    I saw a young womans over coat get cought in the BART doors before the train rolled out and draged her while kicking and screaming a good 20-30 feet on the platfom before she was let loose. Wasnt ratchet but terrifing.

  • I would of let the damn irl off the bus and the bus driver shouldn’t touh her at all

  • So I should of known Philly (my hometown) was going to make it on the list number seven.

    Public transportation is the meet up spot for the weirdos.

    I hate it when mofos talk loudly on their phones as if we wanna hear about your man giving you an STD he caught from bonking your sister, play music from their phones, get a headphone, drunks starting a convo with you, people selling hair weaves, socks, face cloths and bootleg DVDs and just flat out rude who don’t give up their seats to seniors, pregnant women and people on canes, crutches and walkers. Thank god I just brought a car!

    A promo before every vid, no thanks. But anyway, all the way in the U.S. of A-T-L, baby! And if that was ” Madea” on that train…….Dekalb County.

    Dude next to the guy on the train almost killed himself, tryin’ not to laugh!!!! HAHAHA! Classic!

    The girl on the school bus, with the cell phone, needed to be smacked in her mouth! She was rude and disrespectful. When your elder tells you to do something you listen. She is just a spoiled rachet brat!

    • Real

      Notice the daughter did not get involved, until that unruly girl, put her hands on her mother..She lasted longer than me, because as soon as she got into my mothers face, it would have been over for her!

  • JustMe

    Souljah Girl was allegedly mentally unstable….One of her family members said that she’d been off her meds when she did this….

    • Lovely Gemini

      Well, I hope for her sake and other’s sake, her family makes sure she takes her medicine, because she scared me on the computer screen. Grant it, I laughed hard as well, but I also feel sorry for her most of all. She made you feel a lot of mixed emotions even for a stranger.

        I was completely perplexed. I don’t want to say I’m glad she has a mental illness but I’m very glad she’s not normal and acting like this. People have nooooo respect for the elderly any longer. It’s sad.
