Thank you, TTC

Thank you, Toronto Transit Commission.

Thank you for increasing fares every year. I don't need that extra $100 anyway.

Thank you for being reliably unreliable. It keeps life interesting, and I enjoy the challenge of coming up with new excuses for being late for work, because "There were problems with the TTC" is getting old.

Thank you for cancelling express bus service when it snows. Apparently snow is uncommon in Canada, and you're not sure how to deal with it.

Thank you for walking out on the job on what promises to be a hot, muggy, smoggy Monday and leaving 700,000 customers in the lurch. I understand the janitors are unhappy with some scheduling arrangement, so it's only just and fair that all bus drivers, subway and streetcar operators go on strike. After all, this is what early union organizers fought and even lost their lives for: the right to an unbridled sense of entitlement, the right to provide the lowest level of service for the maximum wage, the right to be passive agressive assholes when things don't go your way.

Bravo. Well done.
