A colleague dropped a newspaper in my in tray stating that one of our peers wants me to have it. Oh? Thank you. What a special treatment I received that day. I hardly read the newspaper since it’s mostly bad news anyway. This will just end up in the recycle box.
Front page pictures can really be upsetting when it focuses on local news about commuting. There are so many extra people during peak hours and we could use an extra cars of train to accommodate the growing population in Vancouver. Not just that, we need extra officers to patrol the trains and the stations for the safety of commuters. Officers that serve and protect.
Of course, I did not read the paper; after all, I was working. Then the In Box of my e-mail became busy. My family has sent me e-mails first thing in the morning. What could it be possibly be that I am getting their attention as well. My sister wrote:
Am here @dentist reading ::: then I see this ha ha

This was a surprise. I was just having an animated conversation with a lady gathering information on how I deal with danger during my commute. I did not expect that my conversation and name will appear on the paper.
