In a land way off of my zip code (ok, on the edge of 4th and King), our Twitter mistress Laura runs @caltraindiaries, where you can find these two quality haikus and more to start off your weekend. Laura also documents all cringe-worthy startup gossip and nail clipping you can overhear on your way down to suburbia.

Many crumbs in your seat
Yet, you weren’t eating at all
Someone else’s meal?

Late on a daily basis.

Let’s play ‘What’s Worse on Transit?’

Rider Charles asked us the other day, “Which is worse?”

A) Resting your bare feet on the opposite seat

B) Resting your shoe-clad feet on the opposite seat

On Caltrain, in case that makes any difference to your decision making.

I’m not sure that makes any difference. Transit is transit, though there is the cloth-seats factor.

Anyway, which do you choose: A or B?
