The two women were catching up like two long-lost
friends. They talked about their respective jobs and one's upcoming
wedding. Facebook updates. Upcoming dates. The two ex-co-workers promised to stay in touch.
After the one left the Red Line, the other immediately got on the phone to another friend:
you know how you get stuck
on the CTA with someone you barely know, and they just want to
chit-chat? Like, they won't stop, and you just have to put up with that
boring yammering? Well, it just happened to me. So yeah, I was
trapped on the train."
But at least she was a good actor.
