In Swallow, a woman finds herself sitting on a crowded bus with other travelers standing in the main isle but she is getting beaten down.

Sarah: Excuse me?  Excuse me?  Excuse me, Miss?!  Hi.  Yeah, your ass is swallowing my shoulder.  I don’t mean to be rude, I know the bus is crammed but really, something’s gotta give. I can’t feel like I’m being swallowed whole here, okay?  (beat) I know I could say it nicer but it’s really hot and for the past five minutes I’ve literally been trying to unhinge my shoulder and part of my neck out from your ass and the more effort I make, the more I’m getting swallowed and sucked inward and I’m starting to freak out.  So please, stop crushing me, eating me, whatever it is that’s going on here and aim your rear in a different direction.  Thank you.
