I can't believe I just saw that!

I saw a gentleman on the bus today. He was wearing a jean jacket vest. I call it a jean jacket vest because it was clear it used to be a jean jacket, but he had modified it to fit his personality by cutting off the sleeves. He had full tattoo sleeves. He also had a mullet like I had never seen before. A mullet...complete with dreadlocks. Kill me now.

There is a girl that rides my bus every morning. She needs to set her alarm for five minutes earlier. I wouldn't normally comment on people who rush or run late because I am perpetually five minutes late everywhere I go, but this is a little ridiculous. She runs like mad up to the bus, often flagging it down in between stops. She then THROWS her giant handbag on the floor of the bus, crouches down to dig for her wallet, then tries to steady herself while the bus pulls away and she searches for her CTA card. She then walks down the aisle, plops into a seat breathing heavily with her mouth open, and proceeds to put on way too much makeup to look natural. She really stresses me out. Just watching the ordeal every morning sends me into a slight panic.

Speaking of slight panic...I switched my route around again because I am just as easily bored as I am entertained. When I go to switch lines, there are always two ladies outside the station handing out Red Eye papers. I say "handing out" when I really mean hurling them at people or standing directly in front of them forcing them to take a red eye paper with them. Now, I enjoy the publication as much as the next girl, but at 7:15 in the morning, I can't handle someone shoving a paper into my hands while I'm digging for my CTA card. Listen, you scary ladies, I'll take a red eye when I get off at my stop. You freak me out too much. Good luck.

Last but not least....I saw a man today whose pants were not covering what they were supposed to cover. ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.

Thank you for medicating

Do you remember this gentleman?
Guess who made a surprise appearance on the 76 bus this morning?
He assured me he had taken his medication this morning.
How delightful.

To the gentleman next to me

It really weirds me out that you were pulling out your beard. That is all. Good night, sir.
