Stupid man causes 4 minute delay

Actually, I don't know if it was his action that caused the 4 minute delay but it was stupid of him to pry over the doors anyways. A man, with a suitcase, sticks both his arms as the train doors were closing, and pulls open the doors, and keeps it opened by jamming his suitcase through. As he made his way into an already packed train, everyone was staring at him, with anger.

It took him some time to fully squeeze his body and suitcase in as the doors were stuck mid-way. It wouldn't open fully or close. As we heard the train operator's warnings, and the sound of other doors opening and closing, our train doors were stuck open half way. After a few attempts to open and close it, it finally closed and re-opened as it should have. Meanwhile, more people squeezed into the train. It was at unbearable capacity.

We ended up sitting at Rockridge for 4 minutes. I can't say for sure that it was the stupidity of that one suitcase carrying man that caused the delay, but his action sure slowed us down and made the ride even more cramped and stuffy.

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone. It's been a couple years since I got into the spirit, but I proudly displayed green today!
