Should extremely obese people pay double/triple fare on public transport? I usually take a nap on my commute to and from work. To make napping easier I sit by the window side or the end of the row. This morning I was getting into a light sleep state when I felt my entire body almost pushed and shoved against the wall. My face felt literally pressed against the cabin wall that it was leaning on. It was then I realized this 30+ lady who probably weighed at least 350 pounds had just sat beside me with utter disregard of how huge she was and the fact that she literally took two seats to fit her huge gluteus maximus on. I was weighing whether to use jiu-jitsu or Zen in dealing with the situation and I realized no amount of jiu-jitsu would make me win against this 350+ lbs woman. Against my will I let my Buddhist beliefs enable me to stand up the rest of the way. Before I could even give the lady a look of great annoyance she was fast asleep. She literally took the two sitting spots as one thigh was huge enough to fill one. I thought the rest of the way that people this huge who are this huge not because of an innate medical problem that makes them fat but because of living a sedentary lifestyle should pay double fare. I do not even know how, from an operations standpoint, that this could be made possible, but I really think that it's unfair for normal size people to see people this big paying the same amount of fare when they consume the space good for two people. It's almost like buying a small can of soda and an extra large for the same price. It doesn't make sense. I hope that if it could be managed reasonably well from an operations standpoint that the fares be double for extremely obese people. And of course, if they take up triple the space, then they pay, triple the fare.
