“excuse me, your arm!”

I was on the bus towards Annandale to take another bus home. A guy sat next to me and proceeded to tap away on his cellphone. While he was he doing that, his elbow was digging into my side. Apparently, he doesn’t know about personal space. Now I’m a big girl and I tried to scoop myself over so I don’t take up two seats however this guy’s elbow was clearly digging in my side. Finally, I said “excuse me, your arm!” He had the nerve to act offended. He moved over a bit, relax his arm and gave me a dirty look. Keep looking asshole. If you don’t like it, go sit somewhere else.
