I bet they learned that in the Girl Scouts.

Voice-over:

"Return to the thrilling days of yester-year..."

My last Amtrak trip featured a passenger who woke up enough only to consume more alcohol and a six hour delay when the engineer misplaced the directions from Philadelphia to Pittsburgh.

Unfortunately, the conductor's shoes were still in it.

"Crews even passed out water and food as repairs were being made."

They're going to need more boxes.

Is this what milennials mean by "training"?

My last Amtrak had me next to a guy who told me how he once gave a man with the shakes/DTs a beer while riding on the train. The story was told in the manner like he was saving a life. He then offered me a beer. I declined.

Mind if I patent the idea?

Poddy-in-a-box TM is born!

In January 1999, I waited for an hour or so on an Amtrak train just outside Joliet State Penitentiary as we waited for the southbound train to pass. They originallly stopped before the station, but then they decided we could drop those passengers off.
