One time I was waiting for the train (subway) on one of those side benches... As the train came, we hopped on, then realizing that I have just left my cell phone on the bench!... I had it in sight, I was looking straight at it from the train, and as I tried to step off the train, the doors closed in my face... At that moment, a "subway worker/cleaner" picked up MY phone, looked at it for awhile and stuffed it in her pocket... Note, I'm watching her do this as the train speeds off.|
I figured, ok, a "public" worker, one that I can seemingly trust, has found my phone, so I simply go back and get it.... right? WRONG
When I got back, she was no where to be found, so we asked one of the other workers there to help us find her... She was found, it was her, I remembered her face exactly... and we simply explained our story, and asked for the phone back.... she denied "I never saw a phone, yada yada yada"... meanwhile, furious, I kept repeating "I saw you with my own eyes!... stop lying, or go to prison"
She looked scared, frightened, and asked to <i>privately</i> talk to her worker friend in the washroom... 2 minutes later, the other girl comes out holding my phone... BUT WAIT, she doesn't give it to me just yet... why? "you must apologize for yelling at her" she said (the audacity, jees).... "Me? apologize? SHE should apologize to ME for LYING" I was fed up "give me my phone or else both of you are going to jail"... As we come back after getting a police officer, she instantly handed me MY phone... I never got an apology from her, but I <i>did</I> get one from the officer.
Just a story of many similar ones, no relevance to this particular thread.... But just to note that "public workers" aren't ones to trust. here.
