Riding The Rails

The Boy Child went with some friends by train to Chicago for spring break.  He toured a couple of design firms and said he just may end up living there after college.  Go for it, young man, go for it.

While they were there they had a discussion with an older, wealthy acquaintance of someone in their group about the trip.  They told him they came by way of Amtrak.  "Train?" he asked.  Why would you do that?"

The Boy Child told me this and said he never wanted to be rich because "those people tend to be douchebags when it comes to stuff like riding a train."

Lesson delivered.  Lesson learned.  All aboard.
