I laughed to myself this morning on the subway platform as the Montreal metro system is now teaching manners in the form of new billboards. It's amusing and they extol behavior that they say is prehistoric and under threat of extinction. One of the panels shows a caveman running into a subway car and pushing everyone out of his way and the sad part is that it's not exaggerating all that much.

I never thought it would come to this but the job our parents used to do is now left to the city. Some people can't seem to understand the concept that we let others out before we go in; fairly elementary I would think. It is not.

In my building some people look up in amazement as I exit the elevator at the ground floor thinking there couldn't possibly be someone getting off; clearly rocket scientists. As they almost plow into my chest I just give them a subtle eye roll.

Ah yes, public civility.
