No spitting on the skytrain

A sneering thug on the Skytrain works up a big loogy in his throat for a minute. In the interest of not spitting on his own shoes, he attempts to open the doors of the train while it is still in motion. After heavy exertion, the doors come apart a few inches and the train is halted automatically before its stop. The thug has sent his spit flying, but is now growling to no one in particular about the train not going forward – apparently unaware that he is the cause of it.

This is the story as told to me by some friends who were inconvenienced by the lout the other day. Of course, I’ve seen my fair share of odd behavior on our public transportation. Fortunately, I carpool to work, so I don’t have to deal with it on a daily basis.

While we have undoubtedly advanced as a civilization, more than a few individual human beings seem to have been left behind. To those who must put up with morons like this, I salute you.

    Just today, we experienced a dude that was not only spitting on the floor numerous times, but he lit up the last bit of a cigarette and got a few puffs out of it before it was all gone. It wasn’t so much the smell that caught my attention. It was the unusually large flame coming from his lighter that got me.
