Public Transit

Did anybody say that blogs HAD to be about sex?
I'm thinking most of mine aren't

Every day that I work in the office, I take public transit. (I don't know it for a fact, but I would bet that Calgary has some of the most expensive downtown parking in the country [$18 for early-bird]) Anyway, that is another whole issue. As I was saying I take the bus every day, and thank the gods pretty much every day that I live so close to downtown.

My Tuesday bus rides were just a classic example of our transit and riders at their finest! In the morning I missed my regular bus (wouldn't want them to actually follow that schedule) so I take the other route available to me. Not too bad, involves a bit longer ride and a transfer, but I want to get to work early, so I'm goin'. First part of the bus ride goes just ticketyboo, and then comes the spot where I have to transfer. Woohoo, look! Here comes the bus I must transfer onto, but he is full and turns us away. That's ok, there's another right behind him. Nope he won't let us on either. (apparently they didn't use that fare increase to improve service) Now the cursing begins - still in my inside voice though! A couple of minutes later another bus is spotted coming down the street. He didn't even wave as he raced by. And then another follows suit. Now the words "fuck" and "Calgary Transit" are being combined in a not at all flattering way (outside voice and all) FINALLY the next bus stops. I get on the bus, and a young gentleman stands up to give me his seat. (crap, I didn't think I was old enough for that!, and he obviously was unaware of the totally unladylike behavior just a few moments previous) Now there was no express point made that the seat was for me - but no sooner did he get up and move to the back of the bus than some young punk moved past him to sit down. All I could do was laugh, and comment to another woman about punks not having manners. Anyway, I get to work, later than I wanted to be, but I got there.
My return trip was not as annoying, but just as amusing. Afternoon bus I get on, get a seat only to realize that deaf girl (well she will be if she keeps up this behaviour) has her personal music player turned up to stun volume. I am sitting two or three people away, and I can hear practically every word the man was singing (actually almost enjoyed the music, had a nice beat, and the lyrics were ok) Anyway, this isn't too bad, does make me shake my head and wonder if she has any idea the damage she is doing to her ears. There was another guy on the bus, 3 or 4 seats in front of us, he had on his headset, and at one point he took it off and took a look around to see what was clashing with his choice of music - that made me laugh, just the look on his face as he realized that her music was so loud it interfered with his (and no I couldn't hear his)

Anyway, that's my little diatribe on public transit. Most of the time it isn't too bad, and I would rather public commute than drive downtown by myself in my old, air-polluting truck! but every once in awhile I have a commute that just makes me want to vent. Thanks for listening!

Hey, just for fun someday take the C-train at rush hour. It's a real blast, and the folks are just as enjoyable as your busmates.

Geez, all I have to do is look at the c-train and I get creeped out.
Man alive that is just about the worst thing I can think of.
Although it's sometimes funny to watch people on the train. They all cram into the space by the doors, and the 'aisle' area between seats is practically empty!!

The best part I like about using public transit is cleavage. The cleavage available for viewing is varied, intriguing, and most of all entertaining. It can also be a good time for reviewing the theory of gravity and how some cleavage benefits from help and some does not.

I would like to explore that some more sometime, but flunked physics.

To answer your question, no blogs are whatever you want to say...we'll all find a way to make it about sex anyway.

I haven't used public transit for years for all the reason's you talked about, but I have the choice not to also. Maybe you could look for a carpool?

If you choose and find the right folks, you could have quickies everyday b/f work!

Freddy, my guess is there isn't cleavage at this time of year, then again the weather has been pretty fine. Needless to say, I haven't noticed any!

McCob, thanks for your 2cents. Any way that you could up it to paper money, add some zeros and deliver it in person?

Canman, I'm thinking that my 'nice' salary and job makes my 'normal' commute (about 20 mins, door to door) worthwhile, but the idea of hitting the open road with a big ole truck does have some merit - I do love to drive (most of the time)

Taurus, quickies before work!! My god that sounds like a great idea! And where is it you live?

Newbies, that made me laugh - but I notice you and the to-do list didn't make it to my house, as there is still a lot to-do 'round here!
