Tales from the Transit Line

Fashion File from the Morning Commute:

Cannibal clothes were spotted on a Vancouver-bound SkyTrain this morning.

The gnarly tights were paired appropriately with moccasins and a misspelled finger tattoo.

But, hey, whatever, you’ve got to be ‘craz’ to wear leggings that want to eat someone, anyways.

Report from the Morning Commute:

Commuters on the Millenium Line broke a world record this morning.

Two separate straphangers in one SkyTrain car apologized for two unconnected commuting etiquette infractions.

Slumped in his seat, a bearded man in a baseball cap and hoodie, stretched out the kinks leftover from slumber, a state, it appeared, he had only recently left.

One of his legs shot out under the seat in front of him and he kicked a fellow passenger.

“Sorry,” he mumbled, sleepily.

Only moments later, just a few rows away, a 30-something, presumably on her way to work, got up at a stop and stepped in front of another commuter in the process of disembarking from the busy train car.

Sluggishly recognizing her slight, in an obviously pre-caffeine haze, she said “sorry,” and paused to let the other person pass.

A witness is expected to submit a record application to the Guinness Book of World Records.

Report from the Evening Commute:

Nine out of 10 male TransLink transit police officers are single, according to recent study.

The first annual Valentine’s Day survey revealed the majority of transit officers were busy expressing their sexual frustration by harassing commuters, instead of spreading the love on this special day.

Researchers admit, however, the survey results may be somewhat inconclusive and could also mean the discovery of a new pick-up line: “Show me your pass.”

Fashion Files from the Evening Commute:

Justin Bieber’s got nothing on this guy, who, incidentally, is probably old enough to to be the Bieb’s dad.

“It only works if the top matches,” noted the fashionista, who takes his style cues from Teen Scene, when an elderly lady commented on the lovely lavender shade of his shoes.

From this SkyTrain platform it looks like spring has sprung, in this man’s wardrobe, at least.

Curse from the Morning Commute:

If you decide to spit while walking in a crowd of people – may a flock of seagulls fly over you while releasing a shower of their shit.

Fashion File from the Morning Commute:

It has been said, that if you love someone, you should let them go, don’t hold them tight – and if they love you, and if you are meant to be together, they will come back.

That goes for the seasons, too.

When you live north of the 49th parallel, wearing shorts and flip-flops at the end of September is the equivalent of smothering someone.

If you don’t want to turn summer away forever, despite the lovely sunshine we are having, put on some pants and shoes.

Really, it’s embarrassing to go on and on about summer, when summer has clearly moved – on.

Report from the Evening Commute:

A discussion about superpowers on the Millenium Line between a young couple turned into a debate about immortality tonight.

“I would rather be rich,” said the girlfriend, emphatically noting that it would be difficult to be left behind by non-immortal loved ones.

“I’d be immortal,” retorted the boyfriend, unequivocally.

“But what about losing someone you loved?” his lady responded with a hint of sadness.

“I would just find someone new to love,” the gentleman commuter declared.

“But you’d still have your memories … Like Wolverine!” the dame protested.

“Ya, I guess …” said the man.
