Missed Connections: Sorry I missed you

I couldn’t help but take a moment to highight some really funny articles that I read on my way to work. On the bus, if I’m lucky, there is someone that left a METRO, or 24 Hours, which are free commuter magazines. Seeing that I spent 2 hours plus in transit, something to read is imperative. Sadly I live outside the boundries of “urban area,” and can’t get my news until I get to Malton, which I consider to be a suburb of Pakistan and Bangladesh, possibly of India too (when I get the results in I’ll let you know!) Anyways, there are some funny things I read, specifically things that they take from craigslist, regarding “missed connections.”

To the friendly stranger who gave me a tissue for my bloody nose: Thanks again! I didn’t thank you enough for giving me the tissue to clean myself up after having go punched in the subway. Anyways, I thought you were really helpful as I was awaiting the police! I wasn’t sure if you were into guys at all, but if you are, I’d like to return the friendly gesture by buying you a drink. If not, you have my utmost appreciation. This happend around 11p.m. or so, St George station”

“Sorry I missed you…” 24 Hours (Toronto, ON) 21 Jun 2009: 6.

What are my cmments? Bwhaha! A guy got punched in the subway, so obviously he was a flaming homosexual being a drama queen. He’s throwing himself at some random person who helped him, thus pathetic, and then can’t even conjugate words correctly so it’s embarrassing for him even more, and then even tries to make it seem like it’s no big deal if the random guy isn’t gay! Just a laugh and a half, is all!!

I work in Mississauga

Goreway Drive, south of Steeles Ave.Westwood Mall, Malton

What can be said about a 120km hike to work each morning, and the same returning? Who the hell knows. All I know is that every morning the chances of getting stopped on the Goreway Drive, south of Steeles, by a train that lasts about 40 minutes is very high. Seen above is the proof of this happening; truly a tragedy! Tragically for me, the bus terminal in Malton (Mississauga) is across that, and can be seen on the right-handed picture. I get to see that pretty sight each morning, and oddly it’s always really sunny in the morning, I guess I luck out! Sadly there is no photo of my number 7S bus that goes to the airport and across Eglinton Ave. to Square One.

Spectrum Way, Mississauga

And what do I do after a long day at work? Hide in the shadow outside my office at Spectrum Way & Eglinton, which is across from CSA headquarters, and HP headquarters. Good old Airport Corperate Plaza! I get off work at 16:30, which means my alarm goes off at 16:25 so that I get to my bus outside the office at 16:35 bar disaster. I’ve nearly missed it, because my exit is delayed by bathroom break or forgetting the lunch bag, but clearly you can see how unimpressed I am in the second photo, waiting for the bus in 30°C+ weather, plus humidty of course. Notice earphones that help me live through the journey, and sunglasses to ensure that I’m not watched during the ride as well. Great photo!

And of coures the dummy photos that get taken accidentally clearly are of my feet, oh how lovely, and the cord in motion. Does this make you want a Nokia? Hell yes bitches! I love you Finland!
