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:

It actually is called “Palcuzzi’s ploy,” and it was used long ago, as I understand it, in Pennsylvania where Palcuzzi had been criticized by the School Board because his gifted program was “elitist and took a favored few students and gave them special learning experiences.”


Palcuzzi, as the story goes, responded to the School Board by saying that the biggest problem with the gifted program was that it was not elitist enough. He said that if the school really wanted a first-rate gifted program to be proud of, then they should take several steps.

1) Conduct a state-wide search to hire a specially trained gifted teacher who had been through gifted programs;
2) Give that teacher a salary supplement;
3) Hire specialty teachers to work with children who showed promise in particular specialty areas,
4) Let children try out for the gifted program, and avoid age grouping so that the gifted children could work with other children—older or younger—based on competency and potential,
5) Allow these teachers to freely bring these gifted children in after school, on weekends, and during vacations to develop their skills,
6) Make the program a source of pride, with school assemblies where the children could describe the projects they were working on, as well as their goals and aspirations,
7) Get broad community support, including newspaper and TV reporters who would write about their activities, and
8) Perhaps supply these students with a sweater or a jacket that said “G” for gifted.

Then Palcuzzi said, “But I guess you already have this kind of program, because I just described your football team and your basketball team and your baseball team.”

I think the most important line of this is the last sentence.
