Spotted: Crafty, angry person used old magnetic stripe cards in Logan Square.
looks like just a regular a**hole taking up three seats while someone is stuck standing, right?
bonus round! he’s taking up four!
well, at least he moved when two girls wanted to sit down…
"let me just take up a ton of space around you to make you uncomfortable as a way to punish you for daring to take away two seats from me that i don’t need but feel entitled to because i am a man"

May 22, 2012: My weekly CTA column came out today. Every week, I spotlight a different CTA station, picked at random, in my “Stationary” feature. I write about the amenities I like at a station and those that could use change. Last week, I was at the LaSalle/Van Buren stop and noticed the Loop station, built in the 1800s, could use a paint job. This week I’ll be at the 35th/Archer stop on the Orange Line.
