I'd like to request we ride express.

The subway was stalled for a total of 97 seconds yesterday.

This aggravated one passenger in particular.

The next time the doors opened, he stepped off the train and approached the driver.

"I'd like to request we ride express, as I am already late due to your delay."

Riding express would require skipping six other stops in the mean time.

The driver politely declined, the passenger remained disgruntled, and I was thoroughly amused.

I didn't know I was on HIS timetable today. Funny.


  1. I love how easily annoyed people are. It was seriously a 90 second delay. I feel like if 90 seconds puts you behind schedule, you probably need to loosen up, huh?
