  • WTF, Metro Transit? WTF?

    Yesterday morning my daughter got on the #52 with several other kids on their way to Halifax West High School. After all the kids got on, the bus driver apparently decided the bus was too full. "You guys have to get off." He said to the last few kids.

  • To Pretentious Hairstylists

    Stop acting like you have no knowledge of hair products sold at the drugstore. I know you're probably making commission off what you're selling, but would it be too much to ask of you to pick up on my non-verbal cues that this is irritating. I'm not spen

    I've noticed in the last year or so that if I'm sitting in the "window seat" and need to get off, the person on the "aisle seat" just moves their legs into the aisle. What?! GET UP. It is rude to just move your legs, not to mention you make it difficult
