Verbal Jousting on the T

Yesterday I got on the Green Line at Brigham Circle to head home from work. The train operator came on the PA and said, "The other conductor neglected to mention that we'll be standing by for a few minutes."

A moment later the PA crackled again and another voice said, "Sorry about that, folks. The conductor in the other car is having some issues with his medication."

Short pause. First voice: "Once again, we are standing by for a few minutes. The other conductor's wife picks on him and beats him up regularly."

Pause. Second voice: "Folks, he's going to classes to learn how to be a better human being."

Now this might have been a bit unprofessional, but it certainly was funny. Who knew T operators had senses of humor?
