Blessed Train

Around 3 out of 5 workdays of the week I get on a train in the morning and the conductor is this extra chipper man who likes to say "Thank you for riding the blessed train. Because the blessed train is the best train."

He says other really upbeat stuff about having a good day and what-not. I used to giggle and love it, but some days I just am not in the mood anymore and am annoyed by the religious undertones.

Ever been on this train?

Grade: B

I would love to ride the blessed train. I think everyone - including you Charlie - needs a little Jesus in their life. Besides, his birthday is coming up!

I used to hear stories about "the love train" years ago in the Loop. I never rode it but I heard the conductor would announce to people that they were on the love train. The last time I heard a conductor talk was last week thursday during the snow storm and the train was delayed. The guy was an inarticulate buffoon who obviously had no social skills in any realm.
