Goodnight Bubble-head

You have to admit, the bubble-head is a pretty creative writer.
Take this passage for instance:

Since 2009, I've shown proof that Margulies appears to be someone who was left alone in his crib for far too many years as he just can't seem to get enough attention!

That's a good line, better than "I'm just a lonely guy in a room"

Dear Jennifer,
Please consider this email my official notification to you that I am no longer interested in pursuing my case against Neil Mcfarlane. Tell Neil to stop taking out his frustrations with the union on his employees and retirees. ITS NOT OUR FAULT!
Please file appropriate paperwork to dismiss the case.
Thanks

BIG SHOTS GETTING READY TO MOVE TO LUXURY DIGS

Due to construction schedules, staff moves that we thought might happen in February are now slated for January—exact dates TBA. By February 1, the top three floors of Center St need to be vacant, so the transformation into Operations Headquarters can begin. Some Center employees will move permanently downtown, to the new leased space at Harrison Square, while others will temporarily relocate to Holladay St—into space made available by some Holladay employees permanently relocating to Harrison. The 400+ employees who are actually moving should continue to Prepare-PURGE-Pack, and watch for additional instructions. The rest of the workforce should keep in mind that many people you’re used to finding at Center St will be in new locations as of January. For example, HR Benefits is relocating permanently to Harrison Square. For a timeline and much more, visit the PMLR/Moving Together page: r. To share your ideas about how to name the new conference rooms at both buildings, take a short survey.

How's ridership?

As all of you know, this agency just implemented one of the largest fare changes in our history as we closed a $12 million budget shortfall.(this was never proved and many people debated the truth of this) We did our best to estimate revenues and ridership with this fare change. While we have some very smart analysts here at TriMet that provided us with the figures – there is just no way to predict human behavior. So we moved forward with our best educated projections. I’m encouraged to report that our overall weekly ridership for September was only down slightly -- 1.6%.
  • Weekly Bus ridership was up 2.9% and is similar growth to what we have seen on the bus side for about a year now.
  • Weekly MAX ridership was down 7.9% and we attribute most of this ridership loss due to the Free Rail Zone going away. There is still some ridership loss on MAX compared to last year due to increased fare enforcement, but most of the MAX ridership decline is in the Free Rail Zone.(ya right and MAX has become VERY unreliable)
  • A bright shining star

    is WES where ridership continues to grow – up in September by 10.4% over the previous year.  That’s 1,800 per day – a new record!(pathetic and LOOK AT THE OVERHEAD THOSE 1800 RIDERS GET!)
As far as the ridership losses – we will continue to monitor as this is just one month’s worth of ridership.
I should also note that the revenue we saw in September is lining up at or near our projections. I want to stress that is still very early with just one month of results in. There were a number of factors in play – people stocking up on tickets, exchanging in their old tickets and so forth. We’ll have a better idea of where our projections truly are after a full quarter’s worth of results.

TRIMET OFFICIALS ARE SUCH LIARS

So these freaking management liars have the nerve to tell operators that audio recording audio is 'illegal'. (which they know themselves is untrue)
But what I just found out is that TRIMET RECORDS 100 HOURS OF 'SECRET' AUDIO themselves on each 3000 series bus.
Can you believe the audacity of these people. Telling operators its illegal for others to do it but not divulging that they themselves are doing it?
I already knew that the Trimet management has very little ethics and lying is just part of their jobs  but telling everyone its illegal but to find out they do it themselves.
Trimet adds a new level of hypocrisy to their style of management

TriMet – Ellen Fox, Remove My Picture From Your Blog

Portland Transit Lane
She is clearly in violation of HR policies and her blackballing Trimet customers is as unethical as anything I have ever seen. Another example of a TRIMET operator out of control who thinks the public works for them not visa versa. Will Trimet do anything about it? Well things are the way they are at TRIMET due to its management. They don't have any ethics either because they are not accountable to anyone.
That's HOW THEY ROLL

DAVID SALE GETS HIS WISH!

AND TRIMET OPERATORS ARE NOW FORCED TO DEAL WITH THE NEW WORLD!
All new buses purchased by Trimet will have camera's pointed at operators!
That's right folks, from now on there will be camera's pointing directly at operators! And someone has left a comment on a post that there is audio too, which I have not been able to verify. Wouldn't that be hilarious, after Trimet posted that bullshit about audio recording being 'illegal'. (and they knew they were full of shit when they posted that too)
So y'all can stop worrying about Lane Jensen catching you in the act, BIG BROTHER NOW HAS HIS EYE ON YOU, FOR YOUR ENTIRE SHIFT!
DAVID SALE FOUGHT HARD TO GET CAMERA'S ON OPERATORS!

I GOTTA GIVE TRIMET CREDIT FOR ONE THING

They have never deleted a comment I have made to there silly little facebook posts that are connected to the pukingly feel good blog "HOW WE ROLL".

Now those MLR people are a different story. I don't pick on them much because its not really their fault they got big fat contracts paying huge sums of our tax dollars to build a silly 1.5 billion dollar light rail line to a tiny town of 21,000 people.  They routinely delete my comments on their YouTube channel.
