ETS Pilots

Post ImageI take the train to work and school every day, except for the weekends and days like last Friday that I just take off completely. Normally, it’s the same thing day after day. Today however, when I took the train from Stadium to the University, things were different!

You know on the airplane right after you’ve lifted off, or right before you’re about to land, or just as you reach cruising altitude, the pilot talks? He’ll say something about the time, the weather, thanks for choosing our service, etc. That’s what the driver of the train did today! It might sound inconsequential, but it was so completely unexpected! I was totally caught off guard.

It’s kind of funny too, when you think about it, because unlike with an airline, you don’t have a choice of what LRT company to use. There is only one! I don’t know if it’s a regular thing now, or if the particular driver I had this morning was just microphone-happy. Time will tell.

  1. It’s only that guy Mack. I take the train everyday too, morning and afternoon. Only that guy does the little talk like that. There’s this other driver who talks, but not like an airline pilot.

    I can’t believe you have only noticed it today! I usually get him about 2 or 3 times per week!

  2. That’s pretty funny! Nope today is the first time I have heard that guy…2 or 3 times per week? Must be the time of day or something – I was a little later today than normal.
