So you’re @peopleonthebus on Twitter. What kind of stuff do you tweet?
This is a big one. The napping against the window guy. [Shows photo of dude sleeping against window.] Wait, where’s my penguin sighting? That was a very popular one.
What? A penguin?!
Penguin on the—oh no, pigeon. Pigeon on the bus. Oh here he is. [Shows photo of pigeon on the train.]
Oh my god! Did you take that?
I did take it. And I was part of getting him off the bus, or the train because this is the Orange Line. … I was getting off at Chinatown, so I said I would carry him.
Now here’s what interesting. You see a pigeon under the seat—what do you do? Do you ignore it or do you help it out?
I called my mom and she was very proud of me for helping it get out of the station. But everyone else I told the story to told me it was as if I picked up a rat with wings.
