My wife hates strollers — the really large ones where people think it’s
part of their entitlement to bring them on buses and trains and block aisles.
The #80 Irving Park came by to pick
up my wife from work. Of course, she’s disappointed that it’s not the
#80X, but she’s learning to live with it.
At Kedzie, an elderly
woman — about 80 years old — boarded with an empty, folded, grocery cart. She boarded with her
free pass. As she proceeded down the aisle, the bus driver admonished:
“Please do your best to keep that cart out of the aisle.”
immediately snapped: “Yeah, OK, fine! Why don’t you say that to those
people who bring their strollers on board?”
