Inappropriate GO Train guy ... sleeping where it's inappropriate

Before I regale you all with photos of where else it would be inappropriate for this gent to sleep, I want to assure the haters that after a lengthy Twitter discussion with the person who snapped this pic of our very, very, tired friend (complete with pillow) it was determined he had no medical or mental reason of the illness variety to settle in and make those seats his bed.

I once received an email from a woman who claimed to have sprawled herself across a lower-level, bicycle area, bench seat because she had day surgery that day on her stomach, was in pain, and needed to lie down -- on an express train, on a Tuesday, with shopping bags, and a discarded fast food container resting on her chest. After many paragraphs of how I shouldn't judge a book by its cover, she asked me to remove the picture because she was afraid people who knew her from the train would confront her and that she didn't want to bring negative attention to herself -- right -- anyhoo, put down your pitchfork and enjoy:

Looks like it. But I'm not poking fun at sleeping in the Quiet Zone... I get tired some days. I most certainly don't bring a pillow, take off my shoes and hog a two-seater to myself and settle in for a nap. That's what a VIA train is for.

As a person living near a VIA Train station, I always wondered what that smell was.

Thanks CJ, this website is so educational on odd smells.

Quiet Zone on a rush hour LSW train. Sat in the quad, threw his bag in the seat across from him and put on his headset to ignore anybody who may have been looking for that seat. It was one of the ones with the big bulky metal cover for the heater so nobody wanted it...Then before we hit the first stop, the pillow appeared out of thin air, the boots came off (lovely aroma) and our poor tired entitled young man went to sleep.

Sadly, this is the drowsy cherry on the "I am the most important person in the world" Entitlement Sundae that is my daily commute.

That rugby player trying to stop the bull apparently has his sports mixed up.

You'd think that he'd be dressed in pink waving a cape around with his free hand.

Haha... he looks like Bilbo Baggins in the Hobbit movies. Maybe you should have him an image of him sleeping under Smaug's nose!
