i'm always the last one

how come i'm always the last one to hear about things like a city-wide transit strike?  it took almost a retarded amount of time to get to work this morning on what is the hottest day of the year so far.  the last check on the weather network shows that it's over 30 degrees (that's pushing 90 degrees for americans) and from what i can tell there was little to no advance notice.


there were even people standing at bus stops this morning, apparently unaware of the fact that they wouldn't be getting anywhere today.  and the only thing the TTC has to say aboot it today?


Wheel-Trans Customers:

Wheel-Trans is operating limited service only. We will provide as many trips as possible to customers for dialysis. We encourage all other customers to cancel all unnecessary trips. "

maybe they're trying to use the excuse that since it's a holiday in the states today that they should also get the day off.

and make my trip to work an hour and 15 minutes.

can't wait for the trip home.

i'm going to put a bag of dog poo on the TTC's door-step, light it on fire, ring the doorbell and run away.  it will be the most effective and original practical joke ever.

well, maybe not.  but they still suck.

    We had a transit strike that lasted weeks here in Calgary a few years ago. It really sucked!

    It burns me up that these guys provide crappier and crappier service, pay lower and lower wages as veterans retire, and they STILL want to increase bus fare by 25 or 50 cents every freakin' year!

    In a weird way, it seems that Mass Transit is actually encouraging us all to drive our own cars and kill the environment quicker...
