This morning a vault fire underground shut down the Yonge-University Spadina line and chaos ensued. According to Toronto City Councillor Shelley Carroll the delay could not have been prevented by better infrastructure. Carroll said via twitter: “This Vault fire was powerful enough to take down whole system & back up. New signalling wld’ve gone too I’m afraid.” Still, the delay inconvenienced thousands of Torontonians.
The announcement: “Attention all customers on the Yonge-University-Spadina line…”
The denial: I will not be late. I will still not be late.
Anger: F#%K WHAT THE ACTUAL F$@K.
Loneliness: Where are my friends? Why am I stuck? Can this train move?
Acceptance: “Hey I’ll be late today…” or “Oh you know, residual delays” or “Don’t even”
Oh Toronto, you little trooper. Hold your head up high, we’ll eventually get to transit paradise.
