This is terrible: TTC Bus Shelter Graffiti, January 4, 2012

I snapped this picture this morning on my way to Warden subway station. In case you can't read it, the graffiti says "All TTC Workers Suck Ass".


(For folks who don't live in Toronto, the TTC is the Toronto Transit Commission. They operate our public transit system.)


This makes me angry for lots of reasons but here are two:


1) All TTC workers *do not* suck ass. Most TTC workers I've dealt with are good folks. You get what you give so the Golden Rule is a good rule to live by.


2) It's demoralizing for both TTC employees and riders. When people are demoralized, they don't do their best work. This applies to TTC riders just as much as TTC employees.


I hope this gets cleaned up soon.


Update: On my way to work this morning (January 5th), I saw that this graffiti was gone. The window looked to be badly scratched up due to the cleaner, which is an unfortunate, but understandable side effect. I hope that doesn't block people's view of the buses too much, especially when the weather gets worse.
