Transport Y2K

It seems that SMRT is not the only transport operator in the world facing over crowding & jam-packed trains.

The following is an exchange of correspondence between a train commuter and Iarnrod Eireann of the Irish Railway Company:-

Gentlemen, I have been riding your trains daily for the last few years and the service on your line seems to be getting worse every day. I am tired of standing in the aisle all the time on a 14-mile trip. I think the transportation system is worse than that enjoyed by people 2,000 years ago.

Yours truly,

Patrick Finnegan

Dear Mr. Finnegan, We received your letter with reference to the shortcomings of our service and believe you are somewhat confused in your history. The only mode of transportation 2,000 years ago was by foot.

Sincerely,

Iarnrod Eireann.

Gentlemen, I am in receipt of your letter, and I think you are the ones who are confused in your history. If you will refer to the Bible and the Book of David, 9th Chapter, you will find that Balaam rode to town on his ass. That, gentlemen, is something I have not been able to do on your train in the last few years!!! Langgar!

Truly,

Patrick Finnegan
