Click: true moments collected over the years. Stories too short for the stage.
I overheard two TTC workers talking.
MAN: Just got off?
WOMAN: Yeah. Long shift at Union. You know what the crowds are like there. Exhausting.
MAN: You pick it?
WOMAN: Union was my LAST choice, man. Some guys love it, though.
MAN: Like Charlie Wang.
WOMAN: Charlie Wang was a LEGEND.
MAN: You know, he used to sleep there between shifts sometimes? Had a blanket there and everything.
WOMAN: Not surprised.
MAN: Toothbrush, comb…
WOMAN: He was a machine. Thirty years. Then he just lost it.
MAN: Wait, I didn’t hear about that.
WOMAN: His wife passed away, he fell apart. He realised he’d wasted all those years working and missed the best part.
MAN: Yeah. [sighs] Yeah. I know what you mean.
Clicks are also posted every Monday and Wednesday on the Sage Tyrtle Tumblr site.
