The Better Way?
I hate to be negative, but when did the TTC become a restaurant?
And look at the poor guy smushed in beside this woman. Wouldn’t it be nice if her eating didn’t interfere with his space?
I can’t stand riding the TTC and there are many reasons why. Over the years, not only have I watched (AND LISTENED TO) people chomping away on food or gum with their mouths wide open, but I’ve also been privvy to:
- People putting on their make-up (something I mistakenly thought was a personal function to be done in the privacy of your own home).
- Listening to others’ iPods or Walkmen, even though I had no interest in hearing their music.
- Hearing entire phone conversations. I can tell you that the woman beside me today called not one, but three people while she sat beside me. And I can tell you her name and that she was going to give someone a piece of her mind (let’s hope she could spare it).
- Someone’s leg on my seat because they certainly didn’t want to confine their legs to their own seat.
- Backpacks in my face.
- And let us not forget the person who stands in the aisle yelling out psalms, in between curses at “the man”, who will not shut up regardless of what people say to her.
I am hoping to find a job somewhere up by where I live. Somewhere I can drive to. I believe that calling the TTC ‘The Better Way’, is false advertising since it only makes me feel hostile. What’s better about that?
