Yes, you get used to hearing these things all the time. Yes, people are more often patient than not. However, sometimes situations are so ridiculous that you can't help but be consumed by frustration.
With that being said, here are some things we are all tired of hearing.
1. "Attention TTC customers, due to ___, ride times will be longer than usual."
We've all got places to go and people to see!
2. "Shuttle buses."
I'm so excited to be crammed into a little shuttle bus and take double the time to travel to my destination.
3. "I hate winter. I hate snow. I hate this. I hate that."
Complaining won't do much for ya, I'm afraid.
4. "There's an accident at ___."
On the day of the first major snowstorm in the GTA, there was a crash every three minutes. Winter comes every year. Snow comes every year. Come on, people!
5. "Believe in the lord!"
Don't tell me what to do.
6. "Hey girl!"
I will not take your fliers and I will not answer to "girl".
7. "It'll be a 15 minute wait."
It's been half an hour already. How dare you lie to me. I just want my brunch.
8. "We are closing in 5 minutes."
2AM last call ain't cool, man.
9. "The 6" or "416"
Can't we just be simple and call it Toronto?
10. "I'm from Toronto."
As said by people who are actually from Markham or Brampton or somewhere in the GTA, but not actually Toronto.
How many times must you be reminded? It's pronounced "Turonno".
