Well this morning's commute was interesting.

Left for work at 6:45am. Arrived at work 8:55am. Over two hours to get to work. Gotta love transit.

While waiting for the broken down trains to start running again, a woman collapsed on the platform.
A guy leapt out of the car parked in our station to grab her before her head hit the ground.
Stunned and curious commuters stood over them gawking as I grabbed the red emergency phone to notify Skytrain authorities that the woman was down and while he yelled at them to call 911.
One or two people pawed through bags and pockets for cell phones. It took paramedics a frighteningly long time to arrive. I hope the woman fully recovers from what ever brought her down.

After that being in transit for two hours isn't quite such a big deal after that.
