I enjoy the drive to work, while on the otherhand every time I take the TTC I seem to come across the insane and/or disgusting folks. This weekend we took the TTC to the island terminal and I had to stare down some creep checking out my daughter (women have it terrible on transit), and then there was some guy screaming at his demons, trying to get onto the streetcar as we're getting off at College. Then down the steps there's some scruffy beggar shouting at everyone to give him money.
I can understand that. Some day's the TTC is like an insane asylum on wheels. I have had a few crazy incidents over the past few weeks. The one day two guys started fighting over a seat and had to be restrained by other passengers . And then last week a lady who was either mentally ill or high on god knows what, went on a vulgar racist rant yelling at two young east Indian men for speaking in their native language. " you people are so rude" You know Canada is an English speaking country!" The east Indian guys stayed calm and just ignored her. Young children were on the streetcar too. The mother of the children told to the crazy lady not to use that language in front of her kids. The crazy lady started shaking with anger and called her the C word. That's when I and most of the other passengers decided exit the streetcar and wait for the next one! The little kids were scared and were crying as they were leaving the street car.
No shortage of perverts either. I saw guy watching porno on his phone on a crowded bus.
