Umbrella in the El door
Patrick just posted the following in "Add your crazy commuting stories here," and after this morning's rainy commute, I thought it deserved better play. Thanks Patrick.
I just saw a guy get his umbrella stuck in a El door. It was classic!
It was at the Library/State/Van Buren stop. The doors were closing and he stuck the umbrella in hoping to reopen the door. NOPE! The umbrella got stuck.
The guy walked with the El and tried to get it back but the El started picking up speed. He gave up and yelled "shiiittt!' and watched the El take off with his umbrella wedged in.
It happened at 7:15 am this morning. He could have used the umbrella because it was pitch black and started pouring.
