Stretch on your own time, buddy
Okay, me and my sis were out today. And we always take the train downtown. This Saturday the train was motoring, it usually doesn't go that fast, so we were happy it was actually moving like a train and we could get where we wanted to go quickly. Needless to say, we were pretty happy on our half empty, quickly moving train.

But once we hit the tunnels and downtown, we hit a stop where, like twenty people get on with all this roller blade gear and marathon type outfits and biking shorts and all, taking up room on the train, being noisy and just cluttering up our nice empty car.

But here's the worse, most annoying part. This one guy, he's a total spaz idiot. He's RIGHT NEXT to my sister where she's sitting, and if you've ever been on a train, it's not as big as the collosseum, okay? But this guy is facing my sister and stretching! He's bending from side to side, bending on his knees and all, leaning over and back, and he's right in her face.

Boundaries anyone? Every hear of personal space?

She looks at him and he goes "oh, sorry."

I'm thinking 'you idot.' Seriously, he's stretching like he's Richard Simmons or something. But even worse is he can't stand still, it's like he's on Crack or something. He's jumping up and down, bending at the knees, lifting his feet up and down. If you need to stretch that much el stupido, get to the race early, okay? A train car full of people is not the time to pretend you're at Bally's Total Fitness.

Even worse is a guy he was with stretches by bending completely over, legs straight, butt right out in the air in everyone's personal space. What the hell? Is it just me or should I not be offended? Tell me I'm not the only one who would be annoyed by this? Give me a break!

We had around five stops to go before getting off and they were longest in the world. Oh, and the doozy was two guys behind us were jabbering away, loud and animated and then a lady in a thick Jamacian accent is on a headset cell phone next to us talking.

I was ready to jump up with an uzi and just start shooting. Diving out the window wouldn't have gotten me off that car faster. But, our stop finally came and we got off.

Thank. God.

One more reason to hate public transportion.

    Dear Gunny:

    hey! don't dog Richard Simmons! he's the man! ...erm... well maybe not.

    I miss public transportation. I loved watching the weirdos.

    I just hope you didn't see his twig and berries or anything nasty. Your train ride sounds like it's more likely to give you nightmares than your "very creepy" quiz will. ;)
