#19 in the Transit Epiphany Series

I'm on the Maxx and bored with reading. So I start watching my fellow passengers. No one is doing ANYTHING interesting.

Then this grizzled old guy limps onto the bus wearing a hunter's cap and using a cane. He's wearing grubby, ripped pants and he won't sit down, choosing to lean against the steel bar up front so he can rasp at the driver. "Whadda ya mean, why do I go there? Why do people rob a bank? 'Cause that's where the money is. That's why I work the Plaza." He shakes his dirty Starbucks cup near the bus driver's ear. "That's where the money is."

I fish in my wallet for some change. I figured that story was worth it.
