Oversharing commuters and you

Have you ever sat next to one of those chatty commuters who wants the entire world to know their business? You know the type: It doesn’t matter if they are riding the Metro or on a bus, they will keep on talking about something personal.

The Post’s Petula Dvorak wants to hear your stories. She’s looking for your strangest or oddest encounters with other riders on public transit (times when someone said way, way too much) as well as how you handled these situations.
