Reason #912 why we can't have nice things

subject: What Happened??

This morning I entered my usual shelter where I sit to read my book when the outdoor benches are wet.  This morning, however, it wreaked of a terribly bad smelling perfume... The cheap, expired, old lady kind from Dollarama. I had just missed the train so there was no one there the last 5 minutes so imagine how strong it would be if you're sitting next to her on the train! Why do people where so much perfume???? 

So I moved to the next shelter down.  The pictures speak for themselves.  Why the hell do people think that leaving behind a garbage storm is acceptable???? Like the people who still think they can throw their cigarette butts on the ground, or throw their garbage out their car window.  I always take a look around our Ontario cities and wonder who the pompous idiots are that think it's okay to litter.  

Then I started thinking.  This garbage looks like it's been there all night.  The McDonald's fries for one is not something you can order at at GO Statiom.  So why is this station (Rouge Hill) in such a state?  Two weeks ago I had to use the TTC subway for a few days.  Day one I almost stepped on human feces just laying there on the floor of the train.  I couldn't wait to get back to using GO Transit.  But now this. 

I wish they had better surveillance such as cameras to capture these idiots.  

I think we may expect too much as GO Transit passengers because it seems GO Transit's maintenance crews feel like we do.
I still blame other passengers. Just because there is maintenance doesn't mean you can act like a pig.
Has anyone seen the state of Burlington GO Station? - Cj

This should be mentioned at those GO customer service committee meetings.

Wow! And I thought Columbus Ohio was "King" when it comes to "outdoor public landfills and open sewers".
Do you guys also come across used needles and syringes as well?
