Your new favorite band: Larceny of Electric Power

April 2nd, 2012 · 51 Comments

“The Winston Salem Transit Authority posted this memo in their depressing, dingy, bus depot,” reports Bill in North Carolina. (The WSTA‘s new motto: “Kick ’em while they’re down!)

If Security Officers see you charging your cell phone, you can and will be banned from WSTA premises for Larceny of Electric Power.

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.”)

The tale of Tony Q69

July 26th, 2011 · 77 Comments

Janine in Astoria was at a stoplight next to a Q69 bus stop in Queens when she noticed signs reading “TONY Q69″ taped all over the outside and inside of the bus shelter. “I made my boyfriend pull over so I could read it,” she says — and got a photo, so she could share Tony Q69′s shameful story with the rest of the world.

TONY Q69. YOU TONY are the only one who should feel sorry over what happened!! YOU ARE THE MARRIED MAN who was only looking to get sex from me without any strings attached!! You don't know how to give a woman REAL attention, or to call, or to have a real friendship because this is not your intentions to do so! You also use your Q-69 JOB to flirt with all the woman every day!! You are also a smooth talker & a flirt on the phone! And how dare you blame me for anything, especially for wanting attention! I am a single woman & deserve a trusting man in my life!

UPDATE: Greg in Astoria has spotted another note to Tony Q69…

TONY Q69: You Tony, are the only one who should feel guilt over what happened!!! You are the married man who was looking to get sex from me without any strings attached! You can't give a woman real attention or call her to have a real friendship because this was not your true intentions! You were looking for sex period! And you use your job to flirt with women all day on the Q69!!!

As has Adam

TONY Q69: You Tony are the only one who should feel guilty and sorry over what happened! You are the married man who was looking to get some from a woman!!! Your agenda was to have SEX with no strings attached!!! You can't give what a woman needs which is attention, to be called + to have a real friendship/relationship!!!!!! You were out to satisfy yourself period and then walk away like they all do!! And how dare you blame me for anything especially for wanting attention! How Could You!

And Rebecca!

Your knees are pressing into my repressed rage

December 14th, 2010 · 65 Comments

So, one morning, Emily was riding the train from the ’burbs into downtown Chicago, minding her own business like all the other commuters. All of sudden, she says, “about 10 minutes before we reached Union Station, the woman sitting directly in front of me turned and handed me this note without saying a word.”

Hello, awkward!

Hello, Good Morning! Your knees are in my back. :)
