Impersonating a Secret Service agent to evade the fare on the Lowell Line? Child's play

It's not even in the top five best fare-evasion tricks on that beknighted line, Sons of Franky Cabot says, not when you have examples like the guy in the restroom, whom a conductor patiently waited for:

When asked for a ticket, the guy claimed he was on the previous train into Boston, experienced a “seve-ah diarrhea attack” and couldn’t dethrone in time for the next trip. Needless to say, that ride was on the State. Nobody in history has ever debunked an explanation that involved diarrhea.

    Whenever I see a typo now I automatically think it must be a pun and try to work it out. But unless it was Sir Impersonator, I suppose it should be "benighted". (Or did I miss some bit of cleverness? How will I know?!)

    Secret Service: We have stickers that can be seen from the front through crosswalks. Oh, and we have window stickers...

    I once had a lady in a (relatively) small black Lincoln-the kind that liberals are driven around in-with a Warren sticker on the back window-go into a screaming/honking rage when I dared step out into a crosswalk in front of her. Very Pelosi. Wow.

    So you decided to assert your "absolute" rights

    to cross the street by stepping into a crosswalk as a fast moving vehicle was approaching." I can't blame the guy for honking and yelling at you.

    But let's continue supporting this fallacy that people on foot who can quickly control their actions must always have right of way over those drivers who need more time to slow down and stop.

    I'm glad you have such a detailed understanding of the timing and distances involved in that person's incident. And aren't just letting your personal opinions create the story for you.
