Step 1: Seat positioning

Ok, well you firstly want to get on the bus as soon as possible. You then want to find a spot that's not to close to the back but not to close to the front. Once this perfect seat has been found put all your bags and stuff on the side of the window. This will make the seat appear to be more crowded than it actually is.

Step 2: The Distraction

For this to be done successfully this part needs to be pretty good. You will need some sort of object to make you appear as though you are very concentrated on something. Things like iPods, Books, Bags, Homework or even a friends across the aisle will repel someone from asking if they can sit next to you.

Step 3: Enjoy Your Very Own Seat !

Ok, now this is where it all pays off. Now you can spread your legs take a nap or even do your overdue homework in peace. And if all else fails try making friends with the popular kid of the bus that way your basically always guaranteed a seat of your own!
