While recently riding on the bus standing up, a friend of mine grabbed onto the pole nearest her to keep herself steady while the bus traveled down the road. She soon noticed a young man, who was also hanging on to the same pole, staring at her. Although this was somewhat annoying, she decided to just look the other way. Soon the bus came to a stop. Clearing his throat, the young man said, "Excuse me. This is my stop."
Since she wasn't blocking his way, my friend was slightly confused. "Well," she said, "go ahead."
"And this is my pole," the young man said. My friend was completely perplexed until the young man added, "I just bought it at the hardware store to hold up my shower curtain."
