Re: Don’t Blame Calgary Transit for missed trains (March 16)

It doesn’t take much to create train delays and if the operators were able to hold the doors open for every person who was running like mad to catch it, those seconds add up into minutes.

Being a mad dasher myself I can understand the frustration of missing a train by that split second. What makes me laugh is when I see people who’ve missed a train flip the operator the bird, spit on the train or slap the car. Seriously? It’s your fault you missed the train by not leaving wherever you’re coming from that much sooner. If I were the train operator I’d give you a nice big smile, wave and drive away.
