Rude Train

I must say that public transportation in Colorado doesn’t fuck around. 

After we got off our flight in Denver, we had to take a train from the gate to baggage claim.  As the train approached the station a little guitar strum over the loudspeaker announced it’s arrival.  A pleasant recorded voice then told of the train’s destination.  We shuffled inside, and some musical chimes sounded followed by the same pleasant voice announcing the train’s departure: “Please step away from the doors”  Someone on the train next to us was rushing to beat the closing doors, and they slammed shut on the luggage trailing behind her.  The doors on our car shuttered and then flew open.  The same voice came blasting over the loadspeaker, this time sounding a little perturbed: “YOU ARE DELAYING THE DEPARTURE OF THIS TRAIN!”
