Santa On The Subway
Today at 11:35 a.m., Santa Claus boarded the southbound Yonge subway at College. With him was his helper handing out candy canes, and two transit security officers.
Seeing Santa on the subway was not as amazing as seeing two transit security officers. I thought transit security officers only existed in posters on subway walls for me to look at when I am in danger. But there they were, two transit security officers protecting Santa as he walked down the train spreading goodwill.
Not once, while Santa was on the subway, was there a delay. Not once! How strange to have the subway move from station to station without stopping in the tunnel because of a delay . . .
“Attention TTC Customers: We are currently experiencing a delay while workers build new subway tracks. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.”
Thanks to Santa, I got to where I was going in good time. I wish Santa took the subway more often.
