Tony Q69: Never Forget

January 26th, 2012 · 48 comments

Jen in Astoria takes the Q69 bus to work every morning, so she’s quite familiar with the infamous Tony. “I hadn’t seen them in some time,” she says, until catching a glimpse of this beauty just a few days ago. (“Apparently,” she adds, “the chick is still pissed.”)

Tony Q-69 Tony Q69 Tony Q69 You Tony Q-69, are the only one who should feel guilty and sorry over what happened!!!! You are the Married Man who was only looking to get SEX from me without any strings attached!!! This was your only intentions! You Don’t know how to give a Woman any Real friendship either!!!!!

    I easily believe she’s single but the no baggage claim is very debatable

    “Hey baby, they didn’t assign me to bus 69 for no reason.”

    She’s the one that slept with a guy without knowing his last name.

      She slept with a married guy without knowing his last name and then was shocked when he didn’t call.

      It’s implied that she knew he was married before they knocked boots because he allegedly used the line that married men are lonely, too.

      Maybe she thinks he’s from the future and his last name is Q-69.

      Wonder how many married Tonys who screw around, and who take that bus, are going “Oh shit, is that nut job after ME?!”

      Uh duuh, obviously Tony’s last name is Nelson. It’s completely understandable that Jeannie would be upset with him.

      I am much less sympathetic now that this note makes it clear she knew he was married before she slept with him. The first set kind of gave me the impression she figured it out later when she didn’t get the attention she thought she deserved.

    Even if he didn’t disclose to her up front that he was married, she probably didn’t disclose to him up front that she was crazy. So I’d say they deserve each other.

      I’m pretty sure he is never unavailable. Now he just has a crazy stalker you may have to deal with in addition to the wife.

    One night you’re under the bus driver;
    next morning you’re under the bus ?

    If they make a porn version of this story,
    Tony’s name must become Ralph Crammed-in.

      No. There was a guy in the town I grew up in that did something similar when I was in high school. Basically he got a line of credit to buy a lobster fishing boat, something happened he couldn’t make his payments and was SHOCKED when Royal Bank came to collect.

      For the next 5 years he would periodically tag public places about how Royal Bank screwed him out of $100 K. Sometimes he would leave a phone number to call for more info. He was non-affectionately referred to as the “Royal Bank Guy” mostly because one place he always tagged was a train trestle located near a high school that the students would put a lot of energy into painting for school events/holidays/memorials/Run for the Cure etc and we really hated the inevitable graffiti that would show up and because no one felt bad for him for being an idiot and taking a loan he couldn’t support. To this day I regret not taking pictures of the tags to submit to the website. I also regret how so many stories from my childhood make where I am from sound like such a hick place when it is actually pretty nice and is a world famous tourist destination.

      Long story short, people who are pissed and cannot/will not take responsibility for their role in the matter can stay angry for years.

      After all that time in the padded room she has progressed far enough that they are allowing her computers and other hard things.

    I’m sympathetic to notewriter feeling used, but the first time this came up on this site is July 2011. If we assume it was posted shortly after the event, that’s still 6 months. Honey, it’s time to put the past behind you.

    All I can think of is the Kids In The Hall skit:

    “I can’t stop thinking about Tony, wondering where he could be, who he is with, what is he thinking, is he thinking of me, and whether he’ll ever return someday. “

    I don’t understand the relationship between the two letters. Are they on the same bus? Is the 2nd letter put up later, to make fun of the 1st? …maybe I should sleep.

    I am going out on a limb here and going to say Tony 69 never slept with her. I am calling full-on-made-it-all-up-in-her-head-bat-shit crazy.

    Wait, I thought Tony was the bus driver, and took his surname from or gave name to his eponymous bus route.

      That’s what I think as well. Bus routes in NYC are one or two letters followed by numbers. Q-69 is a route in Queens.

      But I still thought it was funny to ask about Q1-68.
