Dirty cup holder is dirty

I noticed this on the bus this morning.

First time I've seen a cup holder on a GO bus.
I took a quick look around and couldn't find another one attached to another seat. How odd, right? One cup holder?

So I opened it.

Ewwwwwww. I see that GO cleaning staff have forgotten about this one cup holder. I used a pen to pry open the clips that hold the cup.

I'm not sure what size of cup these clips hold but they seemed best suited for a traveler mug and not your conventional take-away coffee cup.

There's a reason why I hate discovering shit like this in the morning. It's not until a couple hours later when I'm more awake do I think of what I could have done with this to mess with people.

I should have left a note professing my love for a driver named Steve. It's best to pick a common name in the 30-50 year old male bracket to make the story believable. I would have started with "Dear Bus Driver Steve, I don't know if you'll ever find this note but I didn't have the courage to hand it to you but ... "

Of course, someone would find it (obviously not the cleaning people - that's a given) and hopefully give it to the bus driver on duty who would totally read it and then go back to the yard, or head to Twitter and launch a manhunt for Steve.

Steve, assuming there is a GO bus driver named Steve (and I bet you a thousand foot riders there is) would spend the rest of his driving career wondering which commuter held him dear to her heart.

That would have been amusing but you'd never know the outcome???

IIRC, only some of the first buses of a certain model had those.

Some of the newer ones actually have power outlets near the floor heaters to plug stuff into, at alternating seats.
