So here’s the thing, 50 Shades of Gray has been a pretty big phenomenon for the last little while. Everyone is reading it, those who don’t want to read it still read it because they are curious what the hype is all about (i am one of those people lol). And i think it has gotten to the point where someone sees a book with a word shades or gray, they automatically assume the book is from the 50 shades series.
Here is a conversation i had on the bus today:
I was reading a book called “Between shades of gray”. Girl sitting next to me asks:” Oh is that from the series 50 Shades of Gray”, to which i replied: “No, actually it is a book about a family that got deported to Siberia in 1941″. Let’s just say there was a lot of awkward silence after that. There is definitely no sex in this book lol…
On a side note: Why do people not take their backpacks off when they are on a packed streetcar during rush hour??? I mean no one wants to be smacked in the face by a gargantuan backpack!!
Spotted on the subway… Why is he wearing that? It’s like supermario meets raindeer! Ummm… Caption this please!
Sorry, i have not written in a while. Been dealing with a lot of personal stuff in the last few week. And let me tell you, when it rains it pours. But you have to just pick up and move on with your life, think positively and keep your mind off of things! But either way i am back…i think…
So i was on the subway the other day reading my book. I am currently reading Follett’s “Fall of giants”, and i am quite enjoying the book. A gentleman sat down next to me and proceeded to ask me what i was reading and what the book is about. I explained that is a book about lives of people in several different countries and how their lives were affected by WW1. The man proceeded to nod and tell me the story about the time when he was living through WW1. Now you would imagine that this man was at least 90 years old, but here is the thing, i think he was about 40 years old or so. I was very confused, proceeded to nod at everything he was saying while planning my exit strategy. apparently WW1 was a very tough time for this man. He also asked me if i came there often, at which point i clarified if he meant if i come on the subway often. Of course i told him that i come here pretty much every day. We said our goodbyes and he said that he hopes to see me again. I am sure next time we will talk about WW2. So… what weird conversations have you had with people on the subway? Definitely do share!
Ok now i am really angry because i totally lost the blog entry so now i am typing it up again!!!
But here it goes…
Can someone please tell me what is wrong with the back of the bus? I am talking about the raised platform in the back on a ttc bus. Why are people afraid of the back of the bus??? Everytime i see a packed bus passing by it 9 times out of 10 has tons of room in the back! This morning for example, 3 extremely buses passed by my stop, the bus driver didn’t even bother pulling over and guess what the backs were completely empty!!! So the 4th bus comes, by this time there are quite a few of us in the bus stop. So the door opens and I get on to this crowded bus and guess what the back is of course empty. So i say loudly: ” Can everyone please move to the back because there are other people who need to get on the bus!”. Do you think anyone moved up??? NO! Everyone just pretended that they didn’t hear anything! So i asked the bus driver to ask people to moved down and his reply was: “What do you want me to do? They are not going to listen to me!”. Are you serious?? You are a bus driver how about you try and see what happens!
So please can someone tell me what is wrong with the back of the bus? Are there monsters there? Will you be forever stuck on the bus if you move to the back? Is there a black hole in the back? Are you going to die a violent death if you move up?? What is it?
Sorry i just really had to went, because this has been bugging me all day!!
Angry man was back on the bus today!!! I was so excited that I almost went up to him and told him how much I’ve missed him! But I decided to contain myself . But he wasn’t angry today…
OK i am totally kidding! He was totally angry. Turns out he was late to get to the bus stop, so he had to wait for the next bus which GASP was totally full! How is one supposed to handle that? Request for an additional bus of course. This is how it went (this is what he was telling the lady standing next to him):
” I CAN’T BELIEVE THE BUS WASN’T THERE WHEN I WAS ONLY ONE MINUTE LATE! AND NOW THIS BUS IS COMPLETELY FULL. I JUST CALLED MISSISSAUGA TRANSIT TO GET AN EXTRA BUS. I ALSO ASKED THEM TO ADD MORE BUSES TO THIS ROUTE. THEY TOLD ME TO WRITE TO MY MP IF I WANT THAT. HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO WRITE TO HIM? I DONT LIVE IN MISSISSAUGA, I DIDNT VOTE FOR HIM. GODDDDD THIS IS SO RIDICULOUS. @$#%$^%& “.
Why is this man always so angry??? How can a person go through life being so angry? And why does he have such outrageous demands?? Share your thoughts!
P.S Please forgive my great MS Paint skills lol
Please feel free to share your thoughts and stories!
I was sitting on the subway today and having this inner dialogue with myself:
Me: “Omg look at that ladies toe nails”
Me2: “I know, why would she grow them so long”
Me: “And decorate them with jewels and all”
Me2: ” I wonder if she needs to buy closed toe shoes that are size bigger?”
Me: “I dont know, maybe she just cuts out the toes..”
Me2: ” What about in winter? Is she trying out for the Guiness book of world records?”
Me: “Stop staring, you look crazy..”
Me2: “I can’t, it’s so disturbing i can’t stop looking…”
So, what are your thoughts on long toe nails???
And what is up with people that clip their nails on public transit??? Like, can’t you wait till you get home!!
End of rant….
P.S I was going to post a picture of long toe nails, but i don’t think anyone wants to see them! Instead here is a picture of a kitten! I think he just saw long toe nails…
