CTA Troubles...

On my way to work this morning, I was caught in the middle of yet another typical transit mess, (because as I've noted before the CTA hates me and I have the worst CTA luck EVER).

So I was nearly half an hour late for work. But on the up side, the train conductor did give us a QOTD!

Conductor over PA system: "Excuse me ladies and gentlemen, I have an announcement. Due to a split rail on the brown line, all brown and purple line trains will be rerouted into the subway along with the red line trains. That means you folks are going to be packed in like sardines, and of course you will be delayed."

[A few minutes later]

Conductor over PA system: "Well it's me again folks, and I'm back to tell you that I've got good news and I've got bad news. The good news is I just saved a bunch of money by switching to Geico. The bad news is that it's a giant mess up here. "
