Czech correspondent Martina Roidlova noticed this message lurking in plain sight on our T cars:
“Your tax dollars pay to clean this vehicle. Please do your part by removing your belongings upon departure. Thank you!”
What’s funny here is that we’re being told our money cleans the T, yet the T also wants us to clean up after ourselves. So we’re really “doing our part” twice -- or three times, if you include the cost of riding and fare increases.
Perhaps the T could have advised us: “To avoid higher costs, please do your part by removing your belongings upon departure. Thank you!”
