Sometimes I just wish I carried video camera or tape recorder to journal the continuous bombardment of stupidity I experience while going in to work this past week and a half.
Ever since I went full time I have been catching the 8AM train into work and I have to say there is a big difference between the 6AM commuters and the 8AM commuters.
The 6AM commuters are more laid back and when travelling in groups tend to not talk to one another at near inaudible levels.
The 8AM commuters however…..
seem to want to make it a point that they have friends on the train and EVERYONE ELSE should know about it, not only that but everyone else should know that what they are saying is extremely funny/serious/sad etc. All I hear is
OH MY GOD
YOU CAN NOT BE SEROIOUS
I AM SERIOUS
and the ever so annoying
HAHAHAHAHAHA (in the cackle that only 8AM commuters can do)
Its the lower half of the gene pool the second you walk in through those doors.
Surrounded by them, all clamouring around trying to find THE DOUBLE SEAT…..OH PLEASE LET THERE BE A DOUBLE SEAT, ONE FOR ME AND ONE FOR MY BAG. MY LEGS HURT FROM ALL THE SLEEPING I HAVE JUST WOKEN UP FROM AND MY HANDBAG/BACKPACK NEEDS A SEAT BECAUSE ITS A HANDBAG/BACKPACK.
An example of this new breed of human intelligence I have been experiencing was clearly put on open display on the Friday morning train at precisely 8:07AM (I remember the time because I made a point of finding out the exact time I lost my faith in the human species for the years of psychiatric help I will need because of the following conversation)
I was skipping through the tracks on my mini disc player when I happened to listen in on this conversation (very good way to pick up what these 8AM people are doing when they aren’t picking at themselves)
Girl 1 to Girl 2 : So have you seen the latest ad for the new Tom Cruise Movie The Last Samurai?
Girl 2 to Girl 1 : Yeah, they don’t do a lot of talking in the ads so I don’t think I’ll go see it
[side note](*groan*)[end side note]
Girl 1 to Girl 2 : Yeah I know what you mean, I don’t think Ill go see it because I just cant see Tom Cruise as being Asian.
[side note] If you don’t know what is wrong with this statement then you should not be here, see the little x thing on the top right hand corner of your browser … move your mouse cursor there and click it[/side note]
It was at this exact point that I just wanted to claw at the doors of the train just in case what they had was contagious.
Honestly where do these 8AM commuters come from?
Will I soon become (*gulp*) one of them?
