Assorted Monstrosities

An interesting addendum to the Employee Code situation I posted about yesterday. It seems that by changing everybody's codes, they've rendered our access to the system via our laptops useless.

I think it's pretty funny. It's exactly how this company works.


Movie Quote of the Week

The Taking of Pelham One Two Three



Zachary Garber is taking a group of Japanese men on a tour of the Transit Authority.
Garber

I suppose you gentlemen have your share of crime in the Tokyo subways, right?

Nobody answers him.
Garber

Right?

It becomes obvious that nobody is going to answer him.
Garber

Well, that's the way it goes.

These are the assignment desks, there are one for each of the lines. This is the BMT, the IRT, here's IND, here's our artist in residence, and right through here is our Operations Lieutenant, Mister Rico Patrone, who on weekends works for the Mafia.

Rico, I'd like you to meet some good friends of the chairman.

Patrone
(not even looking up from his paper)

Hiya.

Garber

Very good friends, Rico.

Patrone
(glances up from his paper)

Hiya.

Garber

Rico, these are the directors of the Tokyo subway.

Patrone looks up and smiles. The men bow, and he goes back to reading his newspaper. Garber is uncomfortable.
Garber

Why don't you tell these gentlemen about some of the exciting things that have happened in the New York City subway system lately, Rico?

Patrone

Well, we had a bomb scare in the Bronx yesterday.

But it turned out to be a canteloupe.

There is an uncomfortable silence.
Patrone

I'm busy, Zach, okay?

He goes back to reading his paper.


You know, of all the portrayals of the New York subway system, this moment is probably the most accurate.
