I have these moments when I get to ride the train where I see and hear some of the oddest things. Last week I was riding the train when I heard this guy in the car behind me exclaim “ah crap” and begin dialing his cell phone.

“Uh hi honey, sorry to wake you. Could you login to my email for me?”

Ah, the fun begins I thought.

“OK, my user name is [REDACTED] and my password is [REDACTED]”

Sigh, some folks just don’t get it. But, it gets better.

“No sweetie, that’s for my Gmail account”


At this point I glance around the train to see that I wasn’t the only person that found this fella’s call amusing. There were smirks to be seen. Then this takes a darker turn, for him at least.

“Now, sweetie I’ll need you to order a wireless router from [REDACTED] and my credit card number is 5, 5…

He proceeded to read out the entire number with expiry date and CVN. I was a little worried for the guy at this point. But, I guess Darwin was right. Then I heard a woman’s voice utter, “jackass”. I glanced up to see a little old lady shaking her head as she looked at the loud talker in disgust. A smile crept across my face.


  1. nice!

    for a positive the guy next to me on the plane made sure his wifi was off, looked around before interesting his password and had a glare guard on his laptop to keep people that were off to the side from viewing the laptop and he wasnt even in IT!

  2. There was probably some guy on the train who was like “Sweet! Now I don’t even have to lift his wallet like I was going to do in the first place.” What a moron.
