I was taking the train recently and had the most "interesting" person sit beside me...please, bear with me and read about this charming creature I emailed a friend of mine about...

From RC's email...

Chick beside me on the train...

  1. Can't figure out if 5A is her seat so she shows me her ticket. 5A...yes, I know it's tough to sound out the big words...
  2. Is wearing a short dress and tight black boots...and hasn't shaved in a few days. I can't stop staring at the velcro that covers her legs.
  3. Forgot her credit card and has left her car illegally parked at the XYZ train station. She is now attempting to get someone to help her out. Her car is unlocked. The keys are in her car. She convinced a guy - not her fiance (he said no and right about now is probably trying to find a way out of this commitment) - to go to her car, get her keys, pay for parking until Thursday, put the ticket in her car, lock the car and leave the keys with the VIA clerk.
  4. She forgot to tell this person where she hid the keys in her car.
  5. She arrived with 10 minutes to go before the train arrived.
  6. She forgot to pack toothpaste.
  7. She is meeting a friend at a Toronto hotel and brought - and I quote - an "outdoor bathing suit".
  8. She's getting her urine blessed on Friday. HUH?!?!

If I was her fiance, I would leave town and not give a forwarding address. All of this was learned in the first 10 minutes of her sitting down.

*** About 30 minutes later ***

From RC's email...

Miss Velcro is quite the character. Her skirt is very short and very tight and I presume things are a little uncomfortable 'down there'. Why do I say this? Because she's been squirming for a while - and while every lady has tried this, we all know it won't readjust our underwear. She put her hairy, booted leg on the back of the chair in front of her, braced herself and tried to readjust things by sticking her hand behind her. And, realizing that this wasn't going to work, she just jammed her hand up her skirt and readjusted things...right there! In the seat! With me beside her! :mg:

Yup...you meet the most interesting people on the train...

Re: My train ride...

It could have been worse - she might have been one of those folks who invited you to "bunk with" her at her destination hotel (a conversation I overheard between two women from two rows away on a plane recently.) The target of that conversation was distinctly uncomfortable for those 15 minutes we were required to keep our seat belts on.

My comment to my wife was that the would-be female Don Juan merely wanted to gross out a seat companion so she could have more room because the target never returned to the seat once the seat belt sign went off.;)

Re: My train ride...

That's what I hate about people talking on cell phones (in public). They are totally oblivious to others around them. Last, I was in the waiting at the doctor's and was "treated" to listening to a guy trying to settle a marital dispute. It got so loud and nasty that people actually left the waiting room until an assistant intervened.

Roxane, I go watch the movie: "Strangers on a Train." A great movie by the way...

Re: My train ride...

When being forced to listen to someone having a very animated, loud conversation on the phone, (generally, taking place while waiting in the gate area in an airport), I've often contemplated going up to the person, interupting them and asking why I wasn't sent an agenda for the meeting I'm attending....!!

If you enjoyed that, you need to come visit our local "coffee" house. I think I saw your girl's sister last week.;)

Randy,

Not even then! Like I used to say "not if I was to wear something that had Goodyear stamped on the side of it!".

Ewww! Couldn't drink enough to make that look attractive.
