I overheard a cell phone call made by a commuter beside me on the train heading into the downtown core of our city at 8:45 am, right after she boarded and sat down:
"Hi, I just wanted to call and let you know I'm going to be late for work this morning. I'm on the train; we keep having mechanical difficulties. We've been stopped for ages!"
I wanted to yell into the phone "Lies! All lies! She just got on this train!"
