Rambling thoughts from a public transportation rider.....
This afternoon, some pretty strong storms moved through my area. Strong enough, in fact, that it affected our train. When I got on my red line, it was standing room only (which is rather unusual, given that it was about 4:30 pm). The length of time at stops was longer than normal.
About halfway home, a group of teenagers got on the train. They were so extremely obnoxious. Loud.....belligerant.....disrepectful....profane.....obscene.....etc. Deep down, I wanted to confront them, but was quite too afraid to do so. Thankfully for the rest of the train riders, they happened to get off at my stop.
Then I ran to Wal-Mart on my way home.....I had a return and a few things to grab. While in the food section, a young man "recognized" me from the train.....then proceeded to ask if I had a boyfriend ("no") and a phone number ("no thank you!").
Just when I think there are no prospects in the world......hmmmmm
