This moron who rushed and in dropped his shiny new king size pillows (location is obvious) and completely ignored other passengers boarding or moving through the car.  You’ve got the date, 5:00 pm east express. Just when I’d committed to myself not to judge others and be a “better” person!  Throws a wrench into my mindfulness practice!  Be well and keep up the great work. Cheers! 

PS:  to the degree you decide to use this I know you’ll neutralize who it came from  (ALWAYS - Cj)

PSS: Just prior to sending I did a quick check. They’re now almost fully blocking the floor and he’s never looked up from his phone. Some people’s kids!!!  Lol. He’s carefully folded his blazer and it’s draped across them.   Can you check with your legal team and advise on litigation should I have to exit in an emergency???

Follow up. Ticket checker 2nd time today. Steps over them. Seriously. I hold back my pass until he looks me in the eye.  Um is that not a safety hazard?  Looks around and finally gets it. Ok says I and put my pass on the machine. He does 4 more passengers and realizes I’m still watching him. He taps the guy on the shoulder. He’s already done his “check”. Guy flings the package into empty seat completely disregarding the guy sitting beside him who is now dodging the bag. We couldn’t make this stuff up. BTW I’m pleased I’m not a Scotiabank client. I’d hate like hell to be contributing to his commute.

I'll do a write up. Disappointed in the fare inspector's lack of action.

This is where a studied indifference and coke bottle thick glasses and a Tim's black large add to a satisfactory commute.
When debarking, or perhaps even moving from car to car, walk with swiftly arcing legs. Go for the three points... if you catch my drift. If you get a reaction, simply apologize profusely and point to your eyewear.
Even better - stumble over the pillows and spill your coffee... on th epillows. Extra points for splash on the perp.
All unintentional, of course.

What particularly ridiculous here is the fact that the seating area where this guy is has LOADS of extra space in front of him - absolutely no need to put this bag beside his seat (which I admit that I do, but not if it's 2 king-size pillows, and not if I have anywhere else to put it!).

He could have
a) sat near the window
b) piled his pillows on his feet

He intentionally set out to be a douche canoe and succeeded.

In these situations I always go out of my way to hit and smack as many bags/pillows/shit as possible on the way by. I make sure my briefcase hits anyone sitting on the stairs.
If they at least try to keep the stuff out of the way, I'll pass it by and avoid contact. One car awhile ago had three hockey bags, including a goalie bag piled by the door and two door donkeys guarding it. When people asked them to move when the doors opened, they said to use the other door. I simply walked over the bags to their dismay. Others started to follow and then they got moved and the donkeys got out of the way. They of course uttered threats and curses at me and other commuters. I waved goodbye and walked on.
A small victory but a nice one.
I hope GO enforcement is reading this entry. Blocking escape routes is an offense but I'm too lazy to find the GO Transit act number.

That's not a surprise the the ticket checker did NOTHING. Much like the GO CSA's. They seem to prefer us to self-enforce THEIR rules.

"If you see SOMETHING SAY SOMETHING" - HOW ABOUT THE CSA'S AND GO COPS DO SOMETHING!

Hey, give the guy a break. He obviously must have paid a special rental fee for his space.

Seriously, though ...
... so many people are like a 10-gallon bucket of water dumped onto a hard flat surface. Displacement abound, they just seem to "spread out all over the place", often leaving no room for anyone else.

Everyone always wants someone to do something. Unfortunately bad behaviour is the norm and I'm sure for every 1 person saying "Right on!" when a rule is enforced, there are 10 saying "Wow. Heavy handed. So unnecessary!"

With this, why would any GO enforcement person want to stick their neck out to "do something"?

C.J. Smith said...

If your job is to take an oath to be an officer of the court and thus, enforce the by-laws of a transit agency, then um, yeah, I expect you to enforce.

That being said, the fare inspectors aren't officers, but they know who to call to get some.

Tal Hartsfeld said...

They don't call because they don't want the backlash for being "rabble-rousers"?
