Toronto: uncaring public laugh at sleeping TTC ticket collector

Filed under: Humour — David Jenkins @ 6:37 pm

The Amalgamated Transit Union competes with the soporific ticket collector to see who can be funnier:

The Amalgamated Transit Union says it is ‘‘discouraging’’ that TTC riders did not check on the well-being of a collector at the centre of a media firestorm after he was photographed apparently asleep on the job……. The reports that passengers were laughing at him as they passed by the booth makes this even more disturbing.

The Amalgamated Transit Union want to reassure the public that the tram drivers never fall asleep on the job and are disturbed that anyone would have the effrontery to suggest it.



  1. As long as we’re speculating, what if a TTC rider needed medical attention and was not able to get help because the fare collector was sleeping on the job?

  2. I think it is disturbing that nobody checked to see if he was ok.

  3. Kate,
    My thought exactly -unless they could hear snoring.
