Young man! Please pull up your pants. I repeat, please pull up your pants! Your underwear is showing. — CTA green line conductor

There is a guy on my train complimenting and flirting with anyone who will make eye contact. For example: “Hey girl, I like your shower cap.” See also: “Damn girl. You are nourishing! Like a graham cracker with vanilla ice cream!”

Giving back

May or may not have given my bus driver an entire leftover pizza from work just now.

It is torrentially pouring as we commute. This man has put his wet umbrella on the seat beside him. I will let you do the math.

Just stood up on the train to give my seat to a woman with three kids and some guy who had just run onto the train took it! Even after I told him I was giving it to them! Ahhhhhhhhh CTA rage!!!!!

There are seriously four children under the age of eight standing on this train… What is wrong with people?!?

There is now a man with a crutch and no one has offered him a seat. Two people just got up and I stood in front of the seats blocking them until the eight year old (who appears to be riding the train by himself!) came over and sat after I pointed to it. Man with a crutch declined.

Please let me never be as unobservant as the people on this train car. I’d rather care about stuff too much than completely ignore the world and its people all around me.
