This morning I noticed something…

Or rather I acknowledged something that has been around me for ages but only this morning did it really sink in that it applied to me now…

I was on the subway and was on my blackberry, of course, when the train announcement started yakking – usual blah blah blah:

“…delayed because of train traffic ahead”

Even though there was no train traffic ahead as I waited for the train for ages so we all know that is an automated message to explain any pause in the journey.

“…careful of your cell phones…” something something.

Got it – don’t expose money and any valuables in case of theft…which happened to me by the way.

Someone stole my cell phone out of my corner pocket of my backpack – which was my fault as I was carrying things so put it in there for a brief moment and then I felt it being stolen! Seriously! I felt the guy behind me take it, or push against me – and I immediately reached for it and it was gone!

The guy was still behind me as we were getting on, so I turned around and basically asked “Did you just steal my phone?” over and over as he replied over and over with “No!” while we were still moving onto the train. And just like that the subway doors shut in front of me and I was on the subway and he was still on the platform!!!!!!!!!!!!

UGH!!! That was a frustrating moment. I was ready for a fight but really I don’t know what I would have done as he was getting up in my face, as was I, before those doors separated us. A little scary.

But all I cared about was my blackberry!!!

Anyway, got sidetracked there!

So these announcements were going on – one about train traffic and then about watching out for your valuables that we’ve all heard a million times, and then came something like:

“…when an elderly or pregnant person is standing near you, please offer your seat. Courtesy is contagious and it begins with you.”

And again we’ve heard it a million times, but for some reason today it hit me that that message was talking about me now! That I was now in that category! It was weird – as soon as he said a pregnant person, it resonated right through me.

I don’t know.

It just made me feel funny! 🙂

Although, I can’t sit anyway thanks to good ol’ 365 but it was like a double-take…or a “double-listen”!!!! HAHA!!
