Do you think it’s someone’s job to polish the ceiling of the Skytrain?
Seriously. I actually wonder this.
Those of you who have read this blog for a while may have seen a similar photo about a year ago, during the Winter Olympics. I have always been impressed by the cleanliness of the ceiling in the Skytrain. So, I wonder if there is someone whose job it is to clean that thing, because it always gleams and reflects so nicely. Maybe they just steam-clean the whole thing at the end of each run.
I wonder this because I think fewer people would want to ride the train if, when they boarded, there was gunk and gum and unidentifiable, mucus looking stuff all over the ceiling of the train. On the other hand, maybe I’m tall enough to notice, but no one else notices these things.
Now that I think about it, the train is really clean in general. I’ve never noticed any graffiti in any of the cars. The worst “offense” is some culturejammer who keeps leaving well-written, neatly copied questions on stickers and attaching them to the advertisements in each of the train cars. Who are these unsung heroes of public transportation who keep everything so clean?
