Tales from the Transit Line

Fashion File from the Evening Commute:

Destination – not unknown?

Although the Millennium Line doesn’t go to the border, this commuter appears to be on his way to an American Independence Day celebration.

Fireworks are sure to go off if this gentleman and his festive get-up get across the line.

And with that, we wish a happy Fourth of July to our fellow commuters south of the 49th parallel!

Tales from the Transit Line

Report from the Morning Commute:

Ten minutes into their first date, they both should have known it wasn’t going to work.

“He said to me: ‘Relax, princess,'” reported the scorned girl. “So I gave him a backhand to the face,” she added, demonstrating awkwardly for her two confidants.

Still, she made plans to see him again, coordinating the rendezvous via text, until she discovered she was texting with her potential boyfriend’s brother and not the bachelor himself.

“How would I know who I am talking to? I can’t see him,” she asked, rhetorically.

“What a weirdo,” one friend noted, supportively.

But the determined bride-to-maybe-someday-be eventually got the prankster’s actual number, and attempted to get to know him better.

While “bickering playfully,” however, he announced he didn’t like her personality and declared that they wouldn’t see each other again.

She responded with tears and he, again, proclaimed that she should “relax.”

Report from the Evening Commute:

A large cat was seen taking public transit in Vancouver today, but unlike its similarly-sized cousins – lions and tigers, the animal appeared to be domesticated.

The nearly six-feet-tall feline, who also sported a mustache and strawberry-red hair on his head, was reading the newspaper and walking upright.

Fashion File from the Morning Commute:

Although the rain clouds are hiding the sun and it’s wet, commuters are shedding their drab winter wardrobes for more sexy spring attire.

Just as fitting for wearing in the morning, though, the jean jacket with the mantra: “Drink coffee and destroy” ironed on the back, paired with mismatched socks, one of which is inside out, screams 2014 urban rebel – rain or shine.

If you’re carrying a camouflage Coach man bag, but your dress shirt’s untucked, your loafers are blue with cheetah accents, and your blasting David Bowie’s Modern Love on your iPod, you get a pass for the bag.

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.
