Bag rider of the week

When: Tuesday, April 13, 2010
Boarded Train at: 7:49 am Oshawa
Length of time bag rode on seat: Until Ajax
Accompanied by: Black Jacket
Removed: When the seat was the only one available and a rider asked for the bag to be removed with a polite, but curt, "Excuse me".

Evidence shown below.

Hey, how about we make your bag more comfortable for the morning ride? Here's a bottle of Coke.

And for when it gets hungry, here's some peanuts.

And for when it gets bored, here's an iPod and some funky headphones.

There you go. Now you just relax ... shhh, don't talk. Just let me look at you.

The nerve some people have, eh?
Lately when I've been boarding in the west, I hear this new announcement from the ambassadors saying "for the courtesy of all passengers, please place bags under your seats". It's sad that we have to be told that. It should be a given....

it's whitby, bitch said...

more! more! more!

Nice work with the photos. Making light of the dirty linebackers. Do you know if the linebackers are regular riders?

CJ said...

Yes. Most are.
One day, they will find the site and I will be a hunted woman.

What? How would that work? Let's see ...

Client: I want you to sue this woman for taking a picture of my backpack!

Lawyer: Sue for ... ?

Client: Why, invasion of privacy!

Lawyer: Was your name on this backpack?

Client: No

Lawyer: Was your phone number, email address or home address on this backpack?

Client: No

Lawyer (now slightly exasperated and looking at the clock and cursing his secretary for recommending a free 20 minute consultation in the Yellow Pages): Did your name get published next to your purse?

Client: No

Laywer: So, how was your privacy invaded again and isn't there some kind of rule on GO Transit that bags aren't permitted on the seats during peak times?

Client: (silence)

Lawyer: Your 20 minutes is up.

Let me know how that goes for you anonymous.

I think some of you need take up drinking.

I recommend Mr. Morgan which will go well with ... funnily enough! Coke!

Just be sure to leave the car keys at home.

You can drink on a GO Train? Fantastic, my commutes just got easier.

There's a guy on Lakeshore West who sits in the corner on the upper coach and has a 'tall' can of beer EVERY day on his way home.

I hate Tallboys. The beer always gets warm before I can never finish it. I'd rather have a bottle in front of me... you know the rest.
