Horde of stupid folk

In another post you said "No name calling" but you and your followers repeatedly call people stupid and idiots. Don't be a hypocrite. You also said, if you ask through text I will blurr your name and photo.. Who would want to text you and be harassed that way? Maybe you should stop being a bully.

When it becomes personal, it's not cool. You didn't get to read the comment I didn't allow. You do realize this has gotten personal, right?

Ummmmm... people who aren't courteous on public transit are "stupid" and are "idiots"
What do you call this kind of behaviour anon? And bullying is what you call people who call people out for littering, dirtying seats with winter boots or just being rude on a train?! I don't want to live in the same city as you, or even on the same planet because I cringe just thinking how you act in this world.

People may not be stupid or idiots but if the behaviour they exhibit is stupid or idiotic, then that's a reflection on the person.

I would never call someone who was not courteous stupid or idiotic. Actually, I don't think I would ever catch myself calling someone names like that in general, especially for doing something insignificant like putting their feet up, forgetting litter, or blocking a train door. But, maybe that's because I'm a nice person.

Here is a post I hope you can all laugh at: http://www.boredpanda.com/funny-first-world-anarchists-rebels/ If not, I feel bad you don't have any sense of humour. These are the kinds of things you are spending your time complaining about.

As for things becoming personal.. the minute you copy someone's photo and mock an individual's intelligence, morality, decency, etc it becomes personal. Sounds like a lot of people here need to learn to let the little things go. There are much bigger things in this world to worry about than the petty mishaps occurring on the Go Train.

As I said, this is obviously NOT A WEBSITE FOR YOU. You're lucky you managed to get the space on the soapbox that you got.
We've heard from people like you over the past four years. We're not interested but thanks for writing.
We're not about to take it all down over your butt hurt.
Cheers.

Hi Cindy...I'm amazed to see that this response to our discussion of the self-absorbed and lazy GO train passengers who pervade our daily commute was to validate the behaviour because "Anonymous" thinks he/she is a "nice person".

The way I see it, by calling out the actual person who left the refuse of their entire lunch on a seat for someone else to pick up and throw away, I was giving the benefit of the doubt to their parents, but you never know. I'm not particularly concerned with any opinion expressed by someone who hides behind "Anonymous" - my mother taught me that if I felt the need to stand up for something, I'd better be prepared to put my name behind it. Of course, she also taught me to throw out my garbage and not put my feet on public seats too... ;-)

I love how the apologists excuse all the idiocy that occurs on the train.

I'm nice right up until I see someone putting crap from their boots on a seat, leaving garbage on the train, acting like first-class a-holes or acting in a generally uncivilized, look-at-me-I'm-entitled type of behaviour. Then I'm not so nice.

Get used to it there anon and maybe the world can become a better place without you apologizing for stupidity, ignorance and misbehaving.

You'd better find a site that fits your mentality and accepts filthy GO trains and idiot behaviour. 4chan is right up your alley I would think.

"There are much bigger things in this world to worry about than the petty mishaps occurring on the Go Train."

There are also much bigger things in this world to worry about than Rob Ford, but that doesn't stop the media from hashing through the same stories over and over and over and over again.

Go write to the Star Anon!

You are still too gracious, CJ!

The next time I need to have something dry cleaned because of sitting on a dirtied seat, I will keep in mind that it was probably a nice, courteous, and smart (let's not forget smart) person whose footwear left that mess on the seat. And then I'll feel all fuzzy and happy as I open my wallet to pay for the cleaning.

"There are much bigger things in this world to worry about than the petty mishaps occurring on the Go Train" - There are a huge number of things in the world we have no control over, the situation in Ukraine for example, I'm not going to spend time worrying about something I have no control of. Instead I will focus on things I can change like being courteous to my fellow commuters, doing my part to keep the train clean, or not blocking aisles and doors.

Amen Todd.
If we didn't worry about the little things they would become huge. It concerns me that people don't care about their surroundings, I feel angry when I walk in a park and see discarded Timmy cups, ya it's not like the situation in Ukraine but that doesn't mean we let it go. Take pride in your personal space as well as outside space.
