Hitting the snooze button too often

Overheard conversation between a couple in their mid-20s. She's bitchy and cute, wearing a cream-colored Republican cloth coat. He just nods his head and listens with that beaten-down look on his face.

Her: "You know, now it usually takes you two snoozes on the alarm clock to get out of bed. And that's when you're not watching "24" at 2 in the morning. Hopefully, you'll go to bed by 1:45 tonight." Harumph.

Meanwhile, in the seat directly behind them, the 30-ish woman next to me uses a yellow highlighter on the book chapter "Make Your Attitudes Your Allies."

What is a "cream-colored Republican cloth coat" ?

these posts are getting lame...can we keep the topics strictly on creeps and psychotics? Bickering 20 somethings are about as fun as HGTV

Steven, Tricky Dick Nixon mentioned his wife's "Republican cloth coat" in his famous Checkers speech:

"Well, that's about it. That's what we have. And that's what we owe. It isn't very much. But Pat and I have the satisfaction that every dime that we've got is honestly ours. I should say this, that Pat doesn't have a mink coat. But she does have a respectable Republican cloth coat, and I always tell her she'd look good in anything."

Guest: This blog is about what I "see and hear on the CTA" every day. In other words, about life on the CTA. Sometimes life is mundane and boring, so sometimes I report on the mundane and boring.

I’ll say it again:

File this one under: Who Gives A Damn.

I didn't realize that we had more than one "attitude!" Maybe I should read that book.

To T.Taylor and guest: It is perfectly fine to not enjoy a post, but it is very adolescent and rude to take the time to reply to it letting us know what you think about it. I guarantee that the rest of us do not care what your thoughts are regarding the value of a certain post. If you don't like it, you should just ignore it and move on with your day.

Mattie,

Since when did you start policing comments?

"...it is very adolescent and rude to take the time to reply to it letting us know what you think about it."

awful. This notion contradicts the entire point of the "post a comment" feature.

It's simply getting a little ridiculous how far people are stretching to post something that happened on the train in the morning. I can only imagine the next time I take my hat off on the train and my hair is a bit out of place. Returning to work to find "wacky wednesday hairdo" and a blog written about me. There's some really great stories on here, but i think ones about young pre coffee workaholics during 7AM rush hour don't need to be the feature entry.

ha ha ha ha ha.....this is soo funny. I may be wrong but I think it was guest and T.Taylor's intention to point out how lame and boring this post was (every day can't be that exciting for one person riding the cta, that's why there's a section for everybody else to post their crazy experience) . But by them making those remarks, it made it a little bit more interesting to read.

My reaction to this post was not how boring, but how can she be complaining when it usually takes me 7 hits on the snooze button to get out of bed!

T. Taylor's been bitching for a while now if memory serves he. His/her complaints are what's mundane.

And now you're "bitching", Mike!

Good work.

Sounds like its time for a Taylor challenge......Taylor, please share with us your all time most interesting CTA story. Make us laugh, cry, wince, gag, or squeal.

She could say that the manifest was a dim high as she ran her throes shortly over the ungraciously sex video clip of pamela anderson and found that the naive crotchless fragments ecstatically contented the britney spears shows crotch picture of Alison's unbearable climaxedthey exposed. Well, you'll have to warn for embarrassingly mum, insisted Mike.
