    Sounds like a decent fellow. I think a Thank You card with a Tims or Starbucks gift card enclosed is in order.

    Artics have a better turning radius than rigid units. Whoever told you that has not driven an artic and knows little or nothing about the subject matter.

    General FML moments

    Exactly. People are, for the most part, in their own little world and completely zoned out of 'the moment'. Granted, there are a lot of distractions, but many of the distractions are within the passengers control . For example, don't multi-task. Don't try and put your bus pass away while reading, texting AND listening to music. You are bound to leave something behind when you suddenly realize the bus is at your stop. The announcements are nothing more than a CYA for the company's benefit so that someone can't blame them / berate them / sue them for not being told / reminded to take 'their shit with them'. During the four years that I worked for Lost & Found at ETS, I really doubt such a recorded announcement would have made a whit of difference. Seriously, I have lost count of the number of times someone has come to the front counter to collect a misplaced wallet and then left their cell phone behind as they trotted off with their wallet. For real. Not joking.

    Safeway Cobb Salad. I added some onion. Photo was taken before I added the shaved Parmesan cheese.

    This is exactly what ETS is like. I've always maintained that 'It is not an ETS publication if it doesn't have a mistake in it'. Myself and others (here in Edmonton) even joke tongue-in-cheek about it, referring to the ETS communications dept as the ECD (Effective Communications Department).

    General FML moments

    So one of mom's documents that I framed and hung up last week came crashing down. The glass was not broken, and the frame had come apart at the corners. Anyhow, I taped that sucker together with clear packing tape (taped the frame and then wrapped tape around the whole thing lengthwise and width-wise. Gonna rehang it next week. Bought mom some new pants and a pair of PJ's last week. She won't wear them because she says they are not hers. I give up.

    It does matter because mistakes do no favors for the company's image, and will only breed more mistakes.

    Broadway SkyTrain Extension

    ... Only where trolley infrastructure does not exist. Trolleys are the original 'Plug 'n' Play. Trolleys with IMC are the future.

    The Random Thoughts Thread

    Vancouver does not get as much rain as most people think it does. I LOVE rain and the four years I spent in Vancouver were somewhat disappointing in that regard. They get lots of rain in the fall and winter, but spring and summer can be dreadfully dry. Grass turns brown and trees are chasing dogs. Vancouver is beautiful and has a moderate climate temperature wise for the most part (not as extreme as in some places) And it has trolleys. When you have trolleys, it does make up for a lot of other shortcomings. 😊
