Tweet:

Never been so happy for fresh air. That @cta #RedLine train smelled like someone died and decomposed in a pool of vomit #CTAfail @CTAFails

Response:

To be fair, that smell might be coming from you.

 

Tweet:

The @cta wants to make my life hard today. 15 min stall on the Blue line and now we're being asked to get off the 81W bus.

Response:

We did it just to piss you off.

 

Tweet:

Emerged from below ground on the northbound Red line arriving at Fullerton. @cta such a great system!

Response:

Finally a compliment!!

 

Tweet:

Dear @cta, it's not ok for a bus to run 17 minutes late, especially when the wind chill is 21 degrees. Please fix before temp drops again

Response:

Try a taxi. They smell better anyway.

 

Tweet:

The Bryn Mawr stop's escalator has been boarded up for a month now and @cta doesn't plan on reopening it for another month. WTF

Response:

You could probably use the exercise.

 

Tweet:

@cta Please name one way in which Ventra is not worse than the old system.

Response:

Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men. - John F. Kennedy
