This made national news here last week in Canada. This photo, taken by a passerby, captures a Toronto transit fare collector asleep on the job. The photo was tweeted and has now become an internet sensation, as well as a source of controversy. The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC), the sleeper's employer, is taking commuters to task for not checking to see if the toll collector was alright, stating that he could've been ill or unconscious, not just sleeping.
Nice attempt at damage control, TTC. You fucked us over with yet another fare hike in the new year, you pay a number of your fare collectors salaries that hover in the six figures! and then have the nerve to imply that we're irresponsible. Asshats all.
The silver lining? Since the story hit the net, photoshop enthusiasts have been having fun. Check out this post at BlogTO for some laughs.
